Longest-lasting vehicles in America

Americans drive a lot. Collectively, we put, on average, more than 13,000 miles on our cars each year, according to the Department of Transportation. Because of this, a vehicle's ability to travel long distances without major problems is a huge aspect to take into consideration when it comes time to purchase a new one., a website that aggregates 30 million used car listings from all around the country, recently running through the numbers on 13 million vehicles that are currently on the road to determine which last the longest.

Head through to see the vehicles that are achieving the 200,000 mile mark at a higher percentage than others. It's important to note that while these are the vehicles that have stood the test of time up until today, we can't guarantee future results if you decide to opt for one of these from a current model year.

An even bigger version of the already hefty GMC Yukon, the Yukon XL is a solid, comfortable and versatile vehicle. It's an expensive SUV, sure, but the fact that so many of them are on the road after 200,000 miles means it might be a wise investment.

Chevrolet Tahoe

% Of Cars Over 200,000 Miles: 3.5

The Chevrolet Tahoe is close to being the same exact vehicle as the GMC Yukon, and it's very similar to the Chevy Suburban and GMC Yukon XL that we already saw on this list. Thus, it's not surprising to see the Tahoe on the list of vehicles most likely to surpass 200,000 miles.

Yet another big SUV from General Motors on this list of the longest-lasting vehicles in America is the GMC Yukon. Interestingly, the Yukon scores a little behind its mechanically similar twin, the Chevy Tahoe. There are many trim differences between the two SUVs, and, in the case of the Denali, a bigger, more powerful engine. These changes could account for the difference in ratings.
