Longest-Lasting Cars You Should Buy in Paducah, KY

As you shop for a used vehicle, it’s important to find one that’s built to last. Purchasing a well-made, long-lasting model will help you get more for your hard-earned dollars, save you time and money on repairs, and improve your peace of mind.

To help consumers make good decisions, a recent study by the research company ranked the industry’s longest-lasting vehicles — especially ones that were still on the road after racking up 200,000 miles or more. Based on this study, here’s a closer look at some of the best models, brands, and body styles to consider for your next used car, truck, or SUV.

Toyota tops the list

Toyota is the most durable vehicle brand you can purchase. Out of the top 15 longest-lasting models, eight are manufactured by Toyota — a tally that includes four SUVs, two cars, a truck, and a minivan. Can’t find the Toyota you want or prefer a different brand? Brands like Honda, GMC, Chevrolet, and Ford also boast above-average longevity.

Trucks and full-size SUVs reign supreme

For a vehicle that will stand the test of time, your best bet is a pickup truck or a full-size SUV built on a truck-like frame. Out of the top 15 longest-lasting vehicles, nine were classified as full-size SUVs and another two were in the truck category.

The long-lasting nature of trucks and large SUVs holds true across an array of brands. SUVs like the GMC Yukon, Chevrolet Suburban, Toyota Sequoia, and Ford Expedition exceed 200,000 miles with regularity. So do trucks like the Toyota Tundra and Honda Ridgeline. Outside the top 15, popular trucks like the Ford F-150 and Chevrolet Silverado 1500 also exceed the industry’s average lifespan.

The longest-lasting vehicles to buy

While trucks and full-size SUVs tend to last the longest, those vehicle styles may not work for everyone. Here’s a rundown of the longest-lasting vehicles in a variety of major segments.

TRUCK: The full-size Toyota Tundra delivers great towing and payload capabilities, it comes with multiple cab and bed sizes to meet your work and recreation needs, and it’s engineered to take a beating. For other trustworthy truck options, consider the Honda Ridgeline, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, or the Ford F-150.

FULL-SIZE SUV: One of the world’s toughest vehicles, the iconic Toyota Land Cruiser is the longest-lasting model you can buy, period. This massive, off-road-ready SUV is available with two or three rows and a wealth of deluxe features. You may also want to check out the Toyota Sequoia, the Chevy Suburban and Tahoe, or the Ford Expedition.

MIDSIZE SUV: The two-row Toyota 4Runner is roomy, rugged, and right at home in all-terrain situations. Recent models also provide plenty of technologies to keep everyone connected and protected. The Toyota Highlander Hybrid is another strong choice in this segment.

MINIVAN: In addition to being highly reliable, the Honda Odyssey is an ideal family vehicle, boasting comfortable space for up to eight passengers. Some models add amenities like a built-in vacuum, cabin intercom and camera systems, and seats that are easy to fold and slide. Not surprisingly, the Toyota Sienna is another long-lasting minivan option.

SEDAN: The full-size Toyota Avalon performs smoothly and efficiently, boasts a big trunk, and easily fits up to five passengers. It also comes equipped with a generous selection of advanced safety and infotainment technologies.

HYBRID CAR: Owning the incredibly efficient Toyota Prius over a long period of time can save you a significant amount of money — not only will you save on repairs, but you’ll also be spending much less money on gas.
