It’s been more than 6 years since I sold my beloved ’99 Chevy Tahoe. I drove that thing for over 18 years & for more than 320,000 miles! I still miss driving it…
They just don’t make ’em like they used to…or do they?
A new study looked at the makes and models of cars, trucks & SUVs most likely to get you to 250,000+ miles.
If you want your next ride to be on the road that long, your best bet is probably a TRUCK or SUV.
Eight of the top ten are trucks and SUVs, including the Toyota Sequoia at #1. The only two cars on the list are also Toyotas – the Toyota Prius and the Toyota Avalon.
Before all you Toyota owners get too excited though, your chances of hitting 250,000 miles in ANY vehicle aren’t great. Even in the top 10, only about 1% last that long.
I am happy to say that the Tahoe is also on the list!
Here are the ten cars, trucks, and SUVS most likely to last a quarter-of-a-million miles, according to the study:
- Toyota Sequoia, 1% of them make it at least 297,000 miles.
- Toyota Land Cruiser, 280,000.
- Chevy Suburban, 266,000 miles.
- Toyota Tundra, 256,000.
- GMC Yukon XL, 252,000.
- Toyota Prius, 1% of them hit 250,000 miles.
- Chevy Tahoe, 250,000.
- Honda Ridgeline, 249,000.
- Toyota Avalon, 246,000.
- Toyota Highlander Hybrid, 245,000 miles.
What’s the most miles you’ve ever put on a car?
