According to a data analysis by, the Ford F-250 Super Duty is the longest-lasting truck on the road, with as many as 6 percent of all examples still in service having 200,000 miles or more on the clock.
(Here, we’re using “trucks” to mean both pickups, and Sport Utility Vehicles (SUVs). -Ed.)
That percentage places the Ford F-250 Super Duty at the top of a Forbes list of the ten longest-lasting trucks on the road, just ahead of the Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD with its 5.7 percent 200,000+ mileage rate. Also on the list, in fourth place, is the Ford Expedition full-size SUV, of which 5 percent in service today have racked-up 200,000 miles or more.
The data off of which this list was based looked at some 12 million vehicles on the road today. Since 1998, the Ford F-250 has been part of the Super Duty line of trucks, which uses heavier-duty ladder frames, powertrains, suspension parts, and brakes than the more pedestrian F-150. The truck’s placement on this list is a testament to the quality and longevity of the line.
