The average annual miles driven per year is 13,476, and most Americans are only keeping their cars for about six years. But if you’re in the market for a car that will keep you on the road for miles to come, there are some vehicles that are more likely to get the job done than others. 

In a study from iSeeCars.com, over 15 million pre-owned vehicles sold in 2019 were analyzed to determine which models were most likely to reach 200,000 miles or more. Topping the list is the Toyota Land Cruiser with more than 15% of these models reaching the 200,000-mile mark..  

The longest lasting cars on the road include a mix of vehicles including full-size and midsize SUVs, hybrids, pickup trucks and sedans.

Toyota Land Cruiser tops longest lasting vehicles list

Toyota vehicles most likely to reach 200k miles

Overall, the study found that Toyota had the most vehicles likely to hit 200,000 miles across all vehicle categories. Toyota holds 7 of the 15 top spots on the list, including the Land Cruiser, Sequoia, Highlander Hybrid, 4Runner, Tundra, Avalon and Tacoma. 

The Toyota Land Cruiser is a full-size SUV, and the 2020 model has a MSRP of $85,415. Under the hood is a 5.7-liter V8 8-speed automatic transmission. The interior is roomy and luxe boasting leather-trimmed heated/ventilated seats, pre-collision system, keyless entry/start, JBL audio system with navigation and more. Many of the safety features will also help qualify you for auto insurance discounts keeping your premium down.  

… and 300k miles

The likelihood of a car hitting 300k miles isn’t great. In fact, across all models that hit 200,000 miles, on average only 0.03% of those vehicles will make it to 300,000 miles. If you’re one of few to have a car that makes it to this mileage mark, you’re probably driving a Toyota as well. 

Again, the Toyota Land Cruiser topped the list with 1.5% of these vehicles crossing over the 300k mark. 

Other brands making this limited list include Ford (Expedition), Chevrolet (Suburban) and GMC (Yukon XL).
