A new study from iSeeCars.com has revealed the top trucks owners keep the longest. This list demonstrates not only brand loyalty but also reliability and truck life.
Before we get to the list, it should be noted, it only includes trucks that were sold more than 15 years ago. This means newer trucks such as the Jeep Gladiator are omitted from this list. It would also mean that when trucks like the Nissan Titan and Toyota Tundra are mentioned, these would be the much older and smaller models than we are accustomed to seeing on the road today.
Without further ado, here is the list:
These days, people are keeping their trucks longer than ever. Some of this is due to the rising prices of new vehicles, but we think the improved reliability of today’s vehicles has a lot to do with it, too.
On average, people keep their new cars for 6-7 years. That seems about right. But there are those who keep them much longer and iSeeCars.com wanted to know which trucks are kept the longest. To find out, they analyzed more than 660,000 vehicles to determine which light-duty pickups are most likely kept by owners for 15 years or more.
The bottom line
It really looks like small pickup trucks were the norm just a decade and a half ago. We know the full-size trucks on this list are now giants and what would have been small back then has now grown into a segment we know as midsize trucks. This makes us wonder what would happen if some of these brands brought back some truly compact pickup trucks.
It is an interesting list with many different things to talk about and consider. What stands out to you?
