2006 Mercedes-Benz R-Class Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2007 4dr SUV turbocharged 215hp 3.0L V6 Diesel
7-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Excellent fuel economy with the diesel, especially when driven gently. Also amazing power at the same time see full Mercedes-Benz R-Class review
2007 4dr SUV 268-horsepower 3.5L V6
7-speed shiftable automatic AWD
15mpg city....25 mpg highway....combined is around 17-18 mpg. Not bad considering how heavy this car is. Of course i am very light to the pedal trying to keep my mpg high. Gas is too expensive nowadays so if i don't need to be fast, i am keeping it steady. see full Mercedes-Benz R-Class review

Pretty poor for a 3.5L. see full Mercedes-Benz R-Class review
2007 4dr SUV 302-horsepower 5.0L V8
7-speed shiftable automatic AWD
F-E is poor because of the weight to power ratio. The vehicle is heavy. With the available power, it is easy to drive faster and to maneuver through slower traffic. Frequent acceleration results in lower gas mileage. see full Mercedes-Benz R-Class review

I would probably choose a diesel next time for efficiency reasons - but the additional premium fuel required in the V6 is negligible once the car is paid for....soon now. Very lively engine too. I foresee a hybrid R class type vehicle after 2011... see full Mercedes-Benz R-Class review
