Honda has some good options for buyers in the market for a long-lasting truck or sport utility vehicle. The Honda trucks and SUVs listed below have an above-average number of cars on the road with more than 200,000 miles. For buyers looking to hang on to the next vehicle that lands in the driveway for as long as possible, these three options have you covered.
Honda trucks and SUVs that will last 200,000 miles include the Ridgeline
During a recent study by iSeeCars, the Honda Ridgeline truck was in the top 10 of all vehicles with the longest potential lifespan. Trucks and SUVs are built to run for at least 100,000 miles, but modern cars can sometimes fly past that number. iSeeCars found that the Ridgeline had the potential to last 248,669 miles or more.
The study also found that trucks were the second most common vehicle to last over 230,000 miles behind SUVs. Japanese trucks, like the Honda Ridgeline, have the longest potential lifespan. These trucks made up four out of five of the top 20.
Compared to the competition, the Ridgeline was the best option for the longest-lasting and fuel-efficient Honda trucks or SUVs. iSeeCars also found it the most reliable vehicle in the midsize truck category. Around 3.4% of all Hona Ridgeline trucks on the road have 200,000 miles or more, far higher than the 1.9% average for the midsize truck categories.
Honda’s Pilot is an SUV that will last 200,000 miles
Would you have guessed the Honda Pilot was in the top 20 of the longest-lasting Honda trucks and SUVs? Studies found that some Honda Pilot SUVs on the road has the potential to last 236,807 miles or more. Some have driven longer, but this number is the average of vehicles studied by iSeeCars still actively operating on the roads.
The Pilot has room for eight passengers and has plenty of standard safety features, depending on the year. A new Honda Pilot will run you somewhere between $38,000 and $52,000, but a three-year-old version is slightly more affordable. iSeeCars says you can anticipate paying between $31,798 and $45,877.
The Honda Pilot is one of the more reliable three-row SUVs on the market, and around 2.5% of Pilots on the road have 200,000 miles or more on the odometer. If you need a bigger Honda truck or SUV that will last you long enough to pass down to someone else, perhaps the Pilot is worth a second look.
Don’t overlook the CR-V for a compact sport utility vehicle
Buyers looking for a reliable SUV with a long potential lifespan might find everything needed in the Honda SUV. In this iSeeCars study, the Honda CR-V’s potential lifespan was 215,930 miles. To get your Honda SUV to 215,000 miles, regular maintenance like oil changes, coolant flushes, and replacement of parts as needed will help extend its life.
Compared to some of the CR-V’s competition, this Honda came in first for longest-lasting, safest, and most fuel-efficient SUV. A new Honda CR-V starts at just over $32,000 and goes past $39,000 for the top-level trim. iSeeCars says buyers can anticipate paying between $27,000 and $36,000 for a three-year-old version.
Honda’s CR-V was second for the most reliable vehicle in the small SUV category. More than 1.4% of Honda CR-Vs on the road have more than 200,000 miles, which is still higher than the average of 0.9%.
