It’s no secret that some vehicles were built to last longer than others, and Chevrolets are some of the longest lasting on the road. iSeeCars.com screened 12 million vehicles sold in 2015 with model years ranging from 1981 on. The goal was to determine the percentage of sales in which the vehicle’s odometer read at least 200,000 miles. Trucks and SUVs dominated the list this year, and of course Chevrolet made the cut.
Top Chevrolet Trucks that Made the Cut
The Chevy Silverado made the top 5 cut with a total of 5.7% of the Silverados on the road having at least 200,000 miles on the odometer. The Chevy Suburban also made the list with a total of 4.8% of them on the road boasting a minimum of 200,000 miles.
Chevrolet’s Reputation for Building Durable Trucks
iSeeCars.com was not surprised at the list being overtaken with trucks and SUVs since they are made to take on more wear and tear than cars. And since Chevrolet prides itself on building long-lasting trucks, it is no surprise Silverado and Suburban made the top 5 list. Longevity is something all car manufacturers like to brag about, but only some of them can back their claims up. Chevrolet’s reputation for building durable trucks isn’t just lip service. The Chevy Silverado backs up this claim by making the list of long-lasting automobiles and blowing the competition out of the water.
Longevity is a key factor for many people when choosing a vehicle. When you purchase a Chevrolet Silverado, you can rest assured that with regular maintenance your truck will live a long life on the road.
