Vehicles with the Longest Lifespans

When it comes to buying a vehicle, there is a lengthy list of things to keep in mind. Should you buy new or used? How do financing and insurance payments fit into your budget? Is a sedan, pickup truck, or SUV better suited to your lifestyle? No matter which way you spin it, vehicle purchases are a huge commitment, and buying a ride that will last you a long time is something to consider if you want to get the most out of your money. Cheapism gathered the results from data compiled by iSeeCars ranking the top 1% of more than 2 million vehicles that achieved the most miles to find the Top 10 rides with the best longevity.

RelatedReliable Cars You Can Drive Into the Ground

2018 Toyota Highlander Hybrid
Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc.

10th-Longest Lasting: Toyota Highlander Hybrid

Top 1% Mileage: 244,994

Toyota's lifespan is unmatched according to iSeeCar's list. The manufacturer produces 6 out of 10 of the longest-lasting vehicles, with the hybrid Highlander SUV being the first to crack the Top 10. The midsize crossover's roomy interior offers three rows of seating.

Toyota Avalon

9th-Longest Lasting: Toyota Avalon

Top 1% Mileage:  245,710

Though now discontinued (2022 was its last model year), the Avalon proved to be one of the Toyota's most reliable rides. Alas, the sedan was put out to pasture to make room for the Crown, a hybrid sedan that arrives in early 2023.

Bedford Highway Flooding

8th-Longest Lasting: Honda Ridgeline

Top 1% Mileage: 248,669

The lone Honda on this list is also only one of two trucks to make the cut. The Ridgeline is Honda's only pickup truck and comes in just one style: a short-box, crew-cab configuration. 

Silver Chevy Tahoe

7th-Longest Lasting: Chevrolet Tahoe

Top 1% Mileage: 250,338

The Tahoe is one of Chevy's most popular full-size SUVs, and it has proven that it can stand the test of time with mileage surpassing 250,000. 

Toyota Prius
Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc.

6th-Longest Lasting: Toyota Prius

Top 1% Mileage: 250,601

Known for being the first mass-produced hybrid vehicle, the Prius has been around since 1997 and has proven to be a faithful ride. Older models were four-door sedans, but starting with the 2003 model year, the Prius shifted to a five-door hatchback design.

5th-Longest Lasting: GMC Yukon XL

Top 1% Mileage: 252,360

The GMC Yukon XL's extended length makes it an even heftier ride than standard full-size SUVs, but its size isn't all it has to offer. Think of the Yukon XL as the elephant or whale of the auto industry: It's huge and has a long lifespan to boot.

Red 2023 Toyota Tundra

4th-Longest Lasting: Toyota Tundra

Top 1% Mileage:  256,022

Pickup trucks have a reputation for durability, and apparently the full-size, crew-cab Toyota Tundra is as durable as it gets when it comes to pickups. 

Chevrolet Suburban

3rd-Longest Lasting: Chevrolet Suburban

Top 1% Mileage: 265,732

Chevy's Suburban has been around longer than any other ride on this list, having debuted in 1935. The full-size SUV is Chevy's clear winner in terms of longevity. 

2021 Toyota Land Cruiser
Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc.

2nd-Longest Lasting: Toyota Land Cruiser

Top 1% Mileage: 280,236

Off-road vehicles are meant for adventure, but Toyota's Land Cruiser is reliable on the road too with a lifespan surpassing 280,000 miles. The model has been around since 1951 with no end in sight. 

Toyota Sequoia 2022
Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc.

Longest-Lasting Vehicle: Toyota Sequoia

Top 1% Mileage: 296,509

It's no surprise that an SUV tops this round-up given the other vehicles on this list — and it's definitely not shocking that a Toyota takes the cake either. The Sequoia's lifespan is hot on the wheels of a whopping 300,000 miles.
