Give it up for the Chevrolet Suburban. It officially has one significant advantage over rivals such as the Ford Expedition, Dodge Durango, and Jeep Wagoneer. The Chevy Suburban serves as one of the longest-lasting SUVs! 

How many miles will the Chevy Suburban last?

According to iSeeCars, the Chevy Suburban has the potential to last over 265,732 miles. It came in third place on the list of longest-lasting vehicles. So, it could outlast trucks, cars, and rival SUVs. 

The Toyota Tundra came in first place with 296,509 miles, and the Toyota Land Cruiser is in second place with 280,236 miles. Then the Chevy Tahoe comes in at 250,338 miles, and the Ford Expedition is in the 11th spot with 244,682 miles. 

iSeeCars analyzed over two million vehicles sold for at least 10 of the past 20 years to rank each model by the highest milage achieving cars. The odometer readings were recorded, and each of the 20 options on this list has a 2.5 percent chance of clearing 200,000 miles. 

The maximum predicted life span of the Chevrolet Suburban is over 300,000 miles. If you drive an average of 15,000 miles annually, then you could get about 15 years of service on the road. A used Chevy Suburban model with around 200,000 miles could be near the end of its life. 

How reliable is the Suburban? 

The 2023 Chevy Suburban has a slightly above-average reliability ranking. It earned a score of 78 out of 100 from J.D.Power, which is an average score. Anything between 91 to 100 is the best, while scores between 81 to 90 are considered to be good. 

To get the most out of your new or used Suburban model, provide proper care and regular maintenance. Also, be sure to review the vehicle’s history report before making your purchase. Inspect the body for damage to avoid expensive surprises. 

The Suburban has an average annual maintenance cost of about $944, which is a little high. It’s about $200 more than the regular price of care for rival models. But the price to get more miles and more ears of service could be worth it. 

There is a 26.05 percent chance that the Surban will require a significant repair during its first 10 years of service. This is 4.55 percent worse than similar vehicles in its segment. It is probably no surprise that Toyota SUVs have a lower maintenance cost. 

Does the Suburban have a good resale value?

Yes, the 2023 Chevy Suburban has a solid resale value. The average Subruan model will depreciate by about 35% after five years, or 7.0% per year, and could maintain a $45,848 resale value. Some models project a loss of $25,036 from its brand-new price. 

But the mileage, maintenance, care, and condition could change these rates. Vehicles with an average of 12,000 miles per year tend to be worth more. But the average person drives roughly 15,000 miles per year. Also, what you use your Suburban for could make a difference. 

If you stick to the pavement, it may have less wear and tear. However, if it’s used for work and or off-roading, then it could be more prone to accidents. While the Suburban comes in third place for its potential life span, it still beats the Toyota 4Runner, GMC Yukon, Dodge Durango, and Ford Expedition.
