GMC Yukon and Yukon XL Rank High on List of Vehicles That Last for 200K Miles
A pair of GMC models excelled in a recent study of the vehicles that last for 200,000 miles or longer.
In an iSeeCars.com ranking of the top 14 longest-lasting vehicles in the U.S., the GMC Yukon XL ranked No. 4, with 4 percent of models reaching 200,000 miles. The GMC Yukon ranked No. 8, with 2.8 percent of models turning over 200,000 miles.
Among all brands sold in the U.S., GMC ranked No. 3, with 1.4 percent of its models lasting for 200,000 miles.
To arrive at its rankings, iSeeCars analyzed nearly 14 million used cars that were sold in 2018 and manufactured between 1981 and 2018.

Two GMC siblings, the Chevrolet Suburban (No. 2) and the Chevrolet Tahoe (No. 6) also appeared in the top 14.
“All manufactured by General Motors, the Suburban, Yukon, Yukon XL, and Tahoe share the same platform and many of the same parts, which could explain why these popular vehicles have similar track records for lasting at least 200,000 miles,” said iSeeCars CEO Phong Ly.
The Yukon and the longer-wheelbase Yukon XL are the biggest SUVs in the GMC lineup.
For 2019, both vehicles carry a standard 5.3-liter V8 engine that puts out 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. Denali trims offer a 6.2-liter V8 that cranks things up to 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. Both vehicles can carry up to nine passengers. With its larger size, the Yukon XL is a bit roomier in the third row and has far more space for cargo. The regular Yukon has a higher towing capacity.
