A new study by iSeeCars.com has evaluated almost 16 million cars sold last year to find ones that reached 200,000 miles. This let judges determine what brands, segments, and models tended to last longer on the road.
The study found that GMC is the third-longest-lasting brand on the market, with 1.4 percent of GMC vehicles on the road after 200,000 miles. Chevrolet was in fourth place, also with 1.4 percent of cars over 200,000 miles. GMC and Chevrolet were the two longest-lasting American car brands on the list, beating Ford.
Two GMC vehicles were in the top 15 longest-lasting cars across the entire auto industry: the GMC Yukon XL, which came in seventh place, and the GMC Yukon, which came in ninth place. The Yukon XL was also named to the short list of vehicles with the highest likelihood of reaching 300,000 miles: 0.2 percent, compared to the average of 0.03 percent for all models.
The GMC Sierra 1500 and the Canyon were two of the longest-lasting light-duty pickup trucks.
The study examined only vehicles that were still currently in production as of the 2020 model year to provide useful data for new-car buyers, and heavy-duty vehicles and low-volume vehicles were also excluded from the study.
If you want a long-lasting truck or SUV, you can purchase a GMC from Transwest Buick GMC in Henderson, Colorado.
