Ford Vehicles Among Top Five Brand Lineups To Last Beyond 200K Miles

Ford has received high ranks in regards to reliability in recent months, ranking above average in the J.D. Power 2022 U.S. Vehicle Satisfaction Study, while the 2019 Ford Flex ranked as the third-best mid-size SUV in terms of dependability, the 2019 Ford Ranger came in second in the mid-size pickup segment, and the 2019 Ford Mustang finished as the highest-ranked mid-size sports car on J.D. Power’s 2022 U.S. Vehicle Dependability Study (VDS). Most recently, the Ford Expedition and Ford F-150 were recently recognized by iSeeCars as two of the longest-lasting models expected to exceed 200k miles, but as a whole, Ford vehicles were also among the top five brand lineups to make it past that point as well.

Ford vehicles finished as the fifth longest-lasting in iSeeCars’ latest list with 1.5 percent of its vehicles currently on the road touting over 200,000 miles. The Blue Oval ranked behind only Toyota (2.3 percent), Honda (1.9 percent), GMC (1.8 percent), and Chevrolet (1.6 percent) in that regard.

To come up with these percentages, iSeeCars analyzed over 14.9 million vehicles sold in 2021 to determine which models have the highest percentage of units that have reached 200,000 miles, with the total average coming in at just 1.2 percent. These figures are especially important in today’s world, where both new and used vehicle prices have soared to record highs, making it necessary for some to hold onto their vehicles until the market inevitably cools off a bit when current supply chain issues ease.

“With new and used car prices at record highs, many consumers are likely keeping their vehicles on the road for an extended period of time or are looking to buy a reliable vehicle to get the most return on their investment,” said iSeeCars Executive Analyst Karl Brauer. “The majority of the longest-lasting SUVs and pickups are American vehicles from these brands, which helps contribute to their above-average ranking on this list. Although full-size SUVs and pickup trucks are the vehicles most likely to reach 200,000 miles on the odometer, there are still options for car buyers who want a long-lasting vehicle outside of these categories, including sedans and hybrids. With many consumers deciding to keep their cars on the road in the wake of high new and used car prices, it’s important to know that regardless of the vehicle, proper maintenance and care is the best way to extend how long a vehicle stays on the road.”
