    America's most-driven vehicle

    There was a new study by the marketplace iseecars.com that was pretty interesting

    iSeeCars.com analyzed more than 2.3 million sales of 10-year-old cars to identify the top 13 vehicles with the highest annual mileage, which were all at least 12 percent above average.

    iSeeCars Top 13 Most-Driven Vehicles
    Rank Car Avg. Miles Per Year % Above Average
    1 Chevrolet Suburban 14,862 24.0%
    2 GMC Yukon XL 14,708 22.7%
    3 Toyota Sequoia 14,193 18.4%
    4 Honda Odyssey 14,120 17.8%
    5 Chevrolet Tahoe 14,040 17.1%
    6 Honda Pilot 13,920 16.1%
    7 GMC Yukon 13,755 14.7%
    8 Nissan Armada 13,753 14.7%
    9 Ford Expedition 13,704 14.3%
    10 Cadillac Escalade ESV 13,615 13.6%
    11 Toyota Prius 13,534 12.9%
    12 Toyota Sienna 13,442 12.1%
    13 Toyota Land Cruiser 13,434 12.1%
    Average for All Vehicles 11,987



    That's not what I'd expect to see. It's mostly large trucks and SUVs, with only one car on the entire list. Looks like American are running the wheels off some gas guzzlers.

    Interesting. While the MPGs may be low, the MPGs multiplied by the number of seats is high, which means if hauling multipke people, these vehicles may actually be economical fuel users. Same analogy applies to load capacity.

    I wonder if there are correlations with location or some other personal background.

    Like most likely in midwest and farm vehicle.
    Or Utah and family vehicle.

    Consider they are 10 yr old fully depreciated vehicles.
