(KXNET) — With car prices remaining near record levels, and consumers feeling the ongoing crunch of inflation, owning a durable car, truck, or SUV, one capable of 230,000 or more miles, can shield consumers from the rising cost of replacing their vehicle.

Which models offer the greatest potential lifespan? To find out, the latest iSeeCars study analyzed over 2 million cars to see which vehicles offer the greatest potential lifespan for drivers. 

As a rule-of-thumb, 200,000 miles is often taken to be the end-of-life for a car, but the study found some models have the potential to reach more than even that high mileage achievement, with some getting close to even 300,000 miles:

RankVehiclePotential Lifespan
1Toyota Sequoia296,509
2Toyota Land Cruiser280,236
3Chevrolet Suburban265,732
4Toyota Tundra256,022
5GMC Yukon XL252,360

7Chevrolet Tahoe250,338
8Honda Ridgeline248,669
9Toyota Avalon245,710
10Toyota Highlander Hybrid244,994

Key Findings include:

  • SUVs and trucks account for three-quarters of the top 20 vehicles
  • Toyotas account for 10 of the top 20 vehicles
  • Three hybrid vehicles make the list, delivering impressive endurance and fuel cost savings

In addition to the overall greatest potential lifespan list, the comprehensive study also provides:
