Vehicles that really go the distance
Americans love to drive, and that means there are lots of cars and trucks on the used vehicle market with more than a hundred thousand miles on their odometers. Interestingly, though, only 0.8% of vehicles make it past the 200,000 mark, and, according to the numbers crunchers at iSeeCars.com, even fewer see their odometers roll into the 300,000s. In fact, on average just 0.1% of all automobiles sold in the United States hit that high-mileage milestone.
But there are a few exceptions. There are six vehicles that are twice as likely to hit 300,000 miles than average. Click above to see which cars and trucks are most likely to go the distance.
First up is the Toyota Tundra. It doesn't sell in nearly the same quantity as its American competitors — the Ford F-Series has been the best-selling vehicle in the United States for decades — but it's the only full-size pickup truck that you'll see on this list.
Toyota TacomaJoining the Tundra on this list of vehicles most likely to hit 300,000 miles is the Toyota Tacoma. Just as the Tundra was the only full-size pickup, the Tacoma is the only midsize truck to join this 300K club. With such impressive longevity, it's no wonder why the Tacoma has such a strong fanbase and is consistently at the top of the resale value ratings.
We now move from trucks to sport utility vehicles. The list of vehicles that are most likely to top 200,000 miles is full of SUVs, so it's not surprising to see them in 300K club, too.
The roomy Chevy Suburban is a favorite for big families that like to take long vacation road trips, and they are frequently used for towing purposes. Both of those activities are likely to rack up a lot of miles (as is the fact the Suburban is frequently used by limo companies).
Next up is the Toyota Sequoia, and its inclusion here makes sense. This utility vehicle is built atop the guts of the Toyota Tundra, which we already saw on this list of vehicles most likely to crest 300,000 miles. And, like the Suburban that preceded it, the Sequioa is a popular pick for big families and their equally expansive family vacations.
For those keeping track, this is the third Toyota on this list, but it's not the last. Click over to the next slide to see what's next.
Toyota 4RunnerThe fourth and final Toyota to make the 300K club is the 4Runner. No surprise here. The 4Runner is known for its durability and dependability, and it shares a lot of its bits and pieces with the midsize Tacoma pickup truck that's also on the list.
The Ford Expedition is on our list of vehicles most likely to pass 200,000 miles, so it's not a shocker to see it atop the 300,000 list, too. As is the case with the Chevy Suburban and Toyota Sequioa, Ford's fullsize sport utility vehicle is a popular vehicle for roadtrips and towing.
And that's it. Just six vehicles currently sold in the United States earn the distinction of being twice as likely as average to see their odometers roll around into the 300s — four SUVs and two pickup trucks.
