Longevity In The Chevy Suburban
When it comes to discussions regarding the longevity of a vehicle, it’s nearly impossible not to involve the Chevrolet Suburban in the conversation. Currently, this full-size SUV is in its 12th generation, as it’s been cruising the streets since 1935. Today, this vehicle has served as one of the longest-lasting automobiles on the market.
According to a study conducted by iSeeCars, the Suburban SUV is ranked third on the list of 20 cars, with the greatest lifespan and potential mileage of 265,732 miles or more. The only vehicles with higher potential longevity belong to Toyota, like the Sequoia, ranking at the top with a possible mileage of nearly 300,000 miles.
The Chevy Suburban ranked higher than other vehicles on the list, such as Chevy Tahoe, GMC Yukon, GMC Yukon XL, Cadillac Escalade, and Cadillac Escalade ESV.
To gather data for this study, iSeeCars assessed over two million vehicles sold within ten years in the past 20 model years and then ranked the models by the example of their highest-achieving mileage. All the ranked vehicles had a minimum of two percent of units exceeding 200,000 miles, while the elite one percent of the cars journeyed between 230,000 and just below 300,000 miles over the past two decades.
“What we see is a list of highly-durable vehicles, capable of more than a quarter-million miles of use if properly maintained,” said Karl Brauer, iSeeCars Executive Analyst. “And to be clear, this study isn’t reporting the maximum lifespan of these vehicles. This is simply a measure of current odometer readings. Most of these cars are still in use and going strong.”
With relevance to the foundation of this reliable SUV, the current 2023 Chevrolet Suburban has three available powertrain options. These motors involve the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84 with an output of 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine producing 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, and the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax engine, which pushes out 277 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque.
Underneath the hood, the latest Suburban SUV, along with the 2023 Chevy Tahoe, tags along the GM T1 platform, while production takes its form at the GM Arlington plant in Texas.
