  • New Car Review

    Though showing its age, the 2017 Toyota Sequoia offers superior reliability, a just-right size and impressive capability.

ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

Every car shopper wants to get the most bang for their buck. For shoppers playing the long game, that means getting the car that can cover the most miles with the fewest headaches. Car research site iSeeCars has analyzed more than 13.5 million cars sold in 2017 and has found the top 10 longest-lasting vehicles based on what percentage of them are still on the road after hitting the 200,000-mile mark.

Not surprisingly, body-on-frame SUVs dominate the list. However, there's one sedan, one pickup truck and one minivan that managed to make it into the top 10. Here they are, along with the percentage of each model that makes it to 200k miles.

  1. Toyota Sequoia - 6.6 percent

  2. Ford Expedition - 5.4 percent

  3. Chevrolet Suburban - 5.2 percent

  4. Toyota 4Runner - 4.2 percent

  5. GMC Yukon XL - 3.9 percent

  6. Chevrolet Tahoe - 3.8 percent

  7. GMC Yukon - 2.8 percent

  8. Toyota Tacoma - 2.6 percent

  9. Toyota Avalon - 2.4 percent

  10. Honda Odyssey - 2.4 percent

Big SUVs are often advertised for their ruggedness and toughness, and apparently many of them live up to those claims. The top seven vehicles most likely to make it to 200k miles are all body-on-frame SUVs. Car-like unibody platforms are becoming very common on SUVs and crossovers, but they still can't match the toughness of an old-fashioned, truck-like body-on-frame architecture.

It's worth noting that four of these top 10 vehicles are essentially the same. The Chevy Tahoe, Chevy Suburban, GMC Yukon and GMC Yukon XL all share the same basic platform and powertrains, with the Suburban and Yukon XL being the longer versions of the SUV.

So, what if you want a long-lasting vehicle, but aren't in the market for a big and strong SUV? You still have a few good options. If you want a mid-size pickup truck, the Toyota Tacoma apparently outlasts much more popular full-size trucks. If you need a humble, roomy sedan, the full-size Toyota Avalon is a great pick for a semi-luxurious family car or just a trusty long-distance commuter. For the ultimate family vehicle that can handle any road trip you throw at it, you can't beat the practicality and longevity of the Honda Odyssey minivan.

For full details on the iSeeCars study, you can check it out here. Any of the cars listed would be great for going the distance without having to worry too much if your car, truck, minivan or SUV can handle all of those miles. If you can't decide which one is for you, check them out on Autotrader to find your perfect long-lasting car.
