If you’re looking for a car that will last as long as possible, consider an SUV.

Sports utility vehicles dominate iSeeCars.com’s recent ranking of the longest-lasting vehicles — taking the top seven of 14 spots on the list.

The ranking is based on the automotive research firm’s analysis of more than 13 million preowned cars, from model years 1981 through 2017, that were sold in 2016. For each model in the analysis, iSeeCars.com calculated the percentage of cars on the road that had more than 200,000 miles.

The site found that, for the average vehicle model, 1.3 percent of cars on the road have more than 200,000 miles. But for the top seven SUV models, anywhere from 3 percent to 5.7 percent of vehicles on the road have more than 200,000 miles.

The 14 highest-ranked models in the analysis — each of which had at least 2 percent of cars on the road after 200,000 miles — are:

  • Ford Expedition (SUV) — 5.7 percent have more than 200,000 miles
  • Toyota Sequoia (SUV) — 5.6 percent
  • Chevrolet Suburban (SUV) — 4.8 percent
  • Toyota 4Runner (SUV) — 4.7 percent
  • GMC Yukon XL (SUV) — 4.2 percent
  • Chevrolet Tahoe (SUV) — 3.5 percent
  • GMC Yukon (SUV) — 3 percent
  • Toyota Avalon (car) — 2.6 percent
  • Toyota Tacoma (pickup truck) — 2.5 percent
  • Honda Accord (car) — 2.3 percent
  • Honda Odyssey (minivan) — 2.3 percent
  • Chevrolet Silverado 1500 (pickup truck) — 2.2 percent
  • Ford F-150 (pickup truck) — 2.1 percent
  • GMC Sierra 1500 (pickup truck) — 2.0 percent

No luxury vehicles made the top 14. The luxury model with the largest percentage of cars on the road after 200,000 miles is an SUV, the Lincoln Navigator, with 1.9 percent.

Phong Ly, iSeeCars.com CEO, notes:

“Super-sized SUVs, such as the Ford Expedition, Toyota Sequoia, and Chevrolet Suburban, are often workhorses for families. 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.”
