Chevrolet Suburban Tops List of Most-Driven Vehicles
Whether it’s serving as a family hauler or a livery workhorse, the Chevrolet Suburban gets driven more than any other vehicle in America.
That’s according to a new study by iSeeCars, which analyzed more than 2.3 million vehicle sales to see which rides racked up the most average annual miles over 10 years.
The Suburban was No. 1 on the list, accumulating an average of 14,862 miles per year — 24 percent above the study average.
“The Suburban is known for its expansive cargo room while comfortably seating up to nine passengers, which makes it popular for large families as well as for fleet and livery use,” said iSeeCars CEO Phong Ly.

GM’s other full-size SUVs ranked high in the study, too. The GMC Yukon XL came in at No. 2 with 14,708 miles added per year, and the regular Yukon was No. 7 at 13,755 miles. The Chevrolet Tahoe was No. 5 with 14,040 miles driven. The Cadillac Escalade ESV ranked No. 10 at 13,615 miles.
“The GMC Yukon XL and the Cadillac Escalade ESV have the same underpinnings as the top-ranked Suburban and are both popular livery vehicles,” said Ly. “Meanwhile, the GMC Yukon and the Chevrolet Tahoe are also mechanically identical, with the Yukon being more luxurious thanks to its fancier look and nameplate.”
Researchers broke the study results down into subgroups, and GM vehicles showed up near the top of the most-driven cars and trucks, too. The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 were the two trucks with the highest annual mileage. The Chevrolet Malibu and Impala sedans ranked No. 3 and No. 5, respectively, on the car list.
