 The fuel economy of the 2022 Land Rover Defender is below average for the luxury midsize SUV class. The Defender 90 with the base turbo-four engine, which gets an EPA-estimated 18 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway, and both body styles with the mild-hybrid-assist six-cylinder, which gets 17/22 mpg city/highway, are the most fuel-efficient of the bunch.

2022 Land Rover Defender Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

Regardless of what's under the hood, the EPA's fuel economy ratings for the various Land Rover Defender models are fairly similar. The 90 model with the four-cylinder engine gets 18 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway. With the six-cylinder engine, the city rating of the 90 drops to 17 mpg, but the highway rating rises to 22 mpg. The 110 model with a six-cylinder engine has the same estimates as the 90 model with a six-cylinder engine. The EPA has not yet released fuel economy figures for the new V-8 model. A Defender 110X with the optional six-cylinder powertrain returned a disappointing 18 mpg on our 75-mph highway fuel-economy route.
