ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

A reader recently emailed me with an excellent idea for an article topic: List the 2016 models currently offered for sale on Autotrader with the highest mileage. So I went looking for the highest-mileage 2016 models, thinking I'd find some stuff with 50,000 miles, or maybe -- in some insane situation where the car was sold in early 2015 as a 2016 model -- 60,000 miles. I was wrong. Very, very wrong.

As of this writing, these are the five 2016 models listed on Autotrader with the highest mileage. I have absolutely no idea how these people drive so much, but I salute them. This sort of driving, ladies and gentlemen, is how you get a car to 1 million miles.

Oh, and one other thing: There are several 2016 models listed on Autotrader with "higher" mileage, but it usually turns out to be a typographical error -- like pressing 200,304 instead of 20,304 or something. All five of these high-mileage 2016 models have verified Carfax or AutoCheck reports showing the actual (ridiculously high) odometer progression.

2016 RAM 3500 Tradesman

1. 2016 RAM 3500 Tradesman -- 109,999 Miles

And the highest-mileage 2016 model on Autotrader is... a 2016 RAM 3500 Tradesman with, I am not kidding, 109,999 miles. Offered for $36,997 by Chrysler Jeep Dodge of McKinney in McKinney, Texas, near Dallas, this 2016 RAM 3500 Tradesman was purchased new on October 12, 2015. Before it even had license plates -- which it got three weeks later, on November 3 -- it already had its first oil change. It had 25,000 miles before it actually entered the calendar year for its model year, and then it just kept on going. Interestingly, there's one clue about this truck's high mileage: While most of its services have been performed in Texas, there are a few hits on the Carfax report in California.

2016 RAM 3500 Tradesman

2. 2016 RAM 3500 Tradesman -- 109,651 Miles

Unbelievably, the 2016 vehicle on Autotrader with the second-highest mileage figure is this 2016 RAM 3500 Tradesman, which has just 348 fewer miles than the truck above it. It's also located in the same state -- though this one is in Corpus Christi. That's about 400 miles from Dallas -- or, in the words of someone who owns one of these trucks, "an afternoon drive." This RAM 3500 was also sold new in 2015, though not until December -- meaning it has piled on miles at a higher rate than the truck above. It's available for sale at Discount Motor Company in Corpus Christi for $36,980.

2016 Ford F-450 Super Duty

3. 2016 Ford F-450 Super Duty -- 85,250 Miles

Not surprisingly, the number-three 2016 mileage champ on Autotrader is also a heavy-duty pickup -- in this case, an enormous 2016 Ford F-450 Super Duty that's approximately as big as those ships that led them to widen the Panama Canal. Offered by Coughlin Ford in Johnstown, Ohio, near Columbus, this F-450 is available for $49,800 -- and it's traveled 85,250 miles. That's especially impressive considering it was purchased at the end of 2015 and traded in during October, meaning it added all those miles in only ten months. From the look of the Carfax report, it appears the F-450 traveled far and wide during that time -- with hits in Kentucky, North Carolina, Ohio and West Virginia.

2016 Ford F-450 Super Duty

4. 2016 Chevy Equinox -- 84,650 Miles

The highest-mileage "normal" vehicle on this list (aka not a gigantic Super Duty pickup that was probably towing vehicles for commercial purposes) is this 2016 Chevy Equinox, offered for $15,989 by Jack Winegardner Chevrolet in Fort Washington, Maryland, just outside Washington, D.C. This Equinox's Carfax report verifies its impressive mileage figure of 84,650, all added between October 2015 and November 2016, apparently while traveling throughout Pennsylvania. While Carfax doesn't give any indication of exactly what this Equinox was used for to rack up so many miles, it does note that it was originally registered as a commercial vehicle.

2016 Honda Fit

5. 2016 Honda Fit -- 76,352 Miles

The most unusual and surprising vehicle on this list is this one: a 2016 Honda Fit with 76,352 miles, offered by Bell Honda in Phoenix, Arizona, for $13,488. There are many great things about this Fit, like the fact that it was purchased new in January 2016, rather than 2015, like all the other cars on this list. Putting that aside, there's also the fact that the Carfax report says this is a leased vehicle -- a hilarious thought, considering most leases restrict drivers to around 12,000 miles a year. But the best part is this: Carfax says this Fit was purchased new on February 28, 2016. By October 20 -- just eight months later -- it had already used up its entire bumper-to-bumper and powertrain warranties.
