While much news focuses on the new vehicle market, the used market is seeing the same explosion in sales. In fact, the used market can be even more of a driving force for younger buyers looking for a stellar ride without the brand new pricing. That’s especially true has truck and SUV sales lead the charge.
Forbes, with the help of iSeeCars, combed through millions of vehicles and accompanying data to find which pickups and SUVs have lasted the longest since 1981. Why has the list landed here? Because Chevrolet and GMC round out nearly the entire list save for a dash of Ford and a sprinkle of Toyota.
Specifically, the heavy duty trucks have faired well, with both the Silverado 2500 and Sierra 2500 placing on the top 10 list. Of course, the truck’s body-on-frame counterparts, Tahoe, Suburban, Yukon and Yukon XL, also place on the list.
Vehicles were ranked by percentage of models still on the road and well over 200,000 miles on the odometer. If GM has always been able to build one thing, it’s a truck or SUV. Check out the rankings at the link above.
