If you want a hot ride that is likely to go the distance for you, a sturdy truck-based SUV is your best bet, according to a new survey from ISeeCars.
Apparently the Ford Expedition has the highest percentage of vehicles with more than 200,000 miles on the road, followed by fellow body-on-frame SUVs: Toyota Sequoia, Chevrolet Suburban, Toyota 4Runner, GMC Yukon XL (which is really a Suburban), Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon (which is really a Tahoe).
Toyota's Avalon full-size sedan finished in 8th place, followed by the Toyota Tacoma compact pickup. The Honda Accord and Odyssey tied for 10th place.
How the Ford Crown Victoria isn't number one, we'll never know. Considering the miles that police and taxi drivers put on them, it seems like there aren't any under 200,000 miles.
"Super-sized SUVs, such as the Ford Expedition, Toyota Sequoia, and Chevrolet Suburban, are often workhorses for families,”said Phong Ly, iSeeCars.com CEO. “For parents who don't want to drive a minivan, these are the vehicles of choice to transport the kids from one activity to the next. They typically transport eight people and usually have significant towing capacity for active families who boat or camp."
These hardworking truck-based SUVs that fill the top seven slots travel 14,407 miles a year on average, 14% more miles than the average driver, according to ISeeCars.
