When you think about buying a vehicle, what factors in? Fuel economy? Technology? Comfort? Performance? What about longevity?
Five Ford models were recently highlighted in a study that set 200,000 miles as a longevity milestone. iSeeCars.com analyzed 30 million cars for sale on its website, looking for long-lasting makes and models.
Pickups and SUVs topped the results, with the Ford F-250 Super Duty® coming in at number one in longevity. The study revealed that of the vehicles that had more than 200,000 miles, 4.2 percent were an F-250. The other Ford models in the top 20 were the Expedition, Explorer and F-150.
Phong Ly, cofounder and CEO of iSeeCars.com, noted that this research shows that today’s car owners like to see how far they can take their cars, though there are still those who replace their cars every two to five years.
iSeeCars.com included with its report a few thoughts on why trucks and SUVs topped the list. For example, it noted that work trucks are more likely to be better maintained.
