Vehicles of all types are becoming more reliable as time goes on. Even brands that would have been written off just a decade ago are making big strides to improve the quality and longevity of their vehicles. In a recent study, research firm iSeeCars looked at which models were most likely to reach at least 200,000 miles, and several General Motors vehicles made the cut.
The iSeeCars study looked at almost 12 million cars sold in 2020, analyzing longevity and reliability. Unsurprisingly, Toyota vehicles dominated the list of top-ten longest-lasting cars. Several General Motors vehicles made the list as well:
- #3 – Chevrolet Suburban with 5.1% over 200,000 miles
- #7 – Chevrolet Tahoe with 3.9% over 200,000 miles
- #10 – GMC Yukon XL with 3.6% over 200,000 miles
- #12 – GMC Yukon with 3.3% over 200,000 miles
To land a spot on the list, at least 2.5 percent of the vehicles in use must reach 200,000 miles. The Toyota Land Cruiser, which has long been praised for its longevity, came in first with 16.3 percent over 200,000 miles.
Chevrolet and GMC had four vehicles on the list, which, as iSeeCars notes, is part of a larger trends of truck-based SUVs demonstrating extreme longevity. The Lincoln Navigator, Ford Expedition, and Toyota Sequoia all made the list and all ride on truck platforms.
In the truck category alone, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 came in at number 5 and the GMC Sierra 1500 came in at number 7. Further down the list, the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon landed numbers 10 and 11, respectively.
