Vehicles are lasting longer than ever before, but it's still top of mind for buyers to get a vehicle that will go the distance. The benchmark in this analysis by iSeeCars was 200,000 miles. The company analyzed data from 13.6 million vehicles to determine which are most likely to reach that mileage mark, and beyond.

The average vehicle has just one percent of that model reach the 200,000-mile mark. Eight full-size SUVs account for the majority of the overall longest-lasting list with the Toyota Land Cruiser earning the top spot. Large SUVs and pickup trucks tend to last the longest, which makes sense because many large SUVs share much of their engineering and parts with pickup trucks.

Scroll down to see the full list of the longest-lasting vehicles by segment.

Ford names site for battery development facility

Ford's new facility will house battery research and development.

Ford

Ford is in the news again for its electrification efforts, this time with the confirmation of a Michigan location for a new battery research and development facility in Romulus, Michigan. The facility may eventually help Ford in-source much of its EV supply chain, a shift that could prevent or mitigate the challenges presented by parts and technology shortages.

As part of its electrification initiative, the automaker plans to build a new research and development facility, called Ford Ion Park. The facility will house new tech research, pilot programs for new manufacturing techniques, and will help give Ford more control over its supply chain.

The price tag for the new facility and related efforts lands at $185 million, which sounds like chump change for a global automaker until we consider that Ford has committed $30 billion to electrification by 2025. The automaker says that its new facility renews its dedication to Michigan as its home base for EV development, a promise it originally made back in 2010. The company's new electric F-150 Lightning pickup truck will be built in Dearborn, which will add 500 jobs. An additional 225 jobs will be retained at Ford's Dyke Electric Powertrain Center.

As part of Phase One of the project, Ford plans to hire 200 engineers within 18 months of the 270,000-square-foot facility's opening. Ironically, the site was previously owned by A123 Systems, a battery manufacturer that closed the facility in 2017 due to low demand for batteries.

This car's auction price is already well past $100,000.

Bring a Trailer

The Toyota Supra is a car whose legend has grown, thanks in part to an appearance in a cult classic movie. Enthusiasts were already obsessed with the cars before 2001's Fast & Furious, but the Supra's leading role as a world-beating Japanese supercar cemented its place at the top of the automotive pyramid. Prices for the cars have been out of this world for years, but this 1995 Supra Turbo up for auction on Bring a Trailer might just take the cake as one of the most expensive ever sold.

The Renaissance Red Supra is absolutely mint, and shows just 7,000 miles on the clock. This fourth-generation Supra is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six that was rated at 320 horsepower and 315 pound-feet of torque when new. Unlike so many of the unfortunately-optioned cars seen for sale today, this one has a six-speed manual gearbox. The car is rear-wheel drive and features a limited-slip differential.

Inside, this car is every bit as nice as we'd expected a one-owner, 7,000-mile example to be. The ivory leather upholstery looks new, as does the dash and carpeting. The driver-focused center console has a factory CD player – a big deal in 1995 – and a cassette deck.

These cars are great, no doubt about it, but six figures (or likely way more, in this case) is a crazy number for someone to pay. We'll be watching the auction, though, and so should you. There are four days left for the already silly $136,000 bid to grow – substantially.
