Does your pickup truck have 200,000 miles on the odometer? What percentage of vehicles just like yours do you think are still on the road?
According to a recent study by iSeeCars.com, which studied more than 13 million pre-owned vehicles from model-year 1981 to 2017 sold in the U.S. with more than 200,000 miles on the odometers, the most longest-lasting vehicles of any type are full-size SUVs. Examples include the Ford Expedition (5.7 percent), Toyota Sequoia (5.6 percent), and Chevrolet Suburban (4.8 percent).
The top pickup trucks on the list were the Toyota Tacoma, which ranked ninth, with 2.5 percent of its vehicles beyond 200,000 miles. After the Tacoma, trucks included the No. 11 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 (2.2 percent), the Ford F-150 (2.1 percent), and the GMC Sierra 1500 (2.0 percent), clearly the best represented segment after full-size SUVs.
Of course, this survey is not a clear indication that your Toyota, Chevy, Ford or GMC will make it to 200,000 miles or that those not named on this list will not. To do that, we recommend regularly maintaining and caring for your truck for the sake of the person likely to purchase your pickup. And who knows – if it's not you, maybe they'll be the ones to take it over 200,000 miles.
