I guess they saved all the american diesel trucks for the "Vehicles that will last 500,000 Miles"....

Wow that list is horribly non-inclusive.

Not a chance.

Well, I guess anything will last that long, just depends on how much money you want to spend on it.

The Chevy Silverado and the 4Runner perhaps, but the others will have been completely replaced by new parts by 100,000 miles.

Well, the Yaris may last that long. I just got rid of a 10 year old Toyota Matrix with 176,000

My 1998 Jeep Cherokee has 240k on it and still runs great.
My last vehicles were:
1994 F350 7.3IDI with 386K
1990 Dodge Ramcharger with a 5.9 Cummins with 315K
and
1996 Ford Ranger with 285K
when I sold them.
I have actually owned 3 Ford Rangers that made it to over 250K.

I took the 5.9 Cummins and the G360 out of my D250 and put it in the Ramcharger. It was going to be a restoration project but turned into a daily driver.

It seems all these list that come from the Chron are veiled advertisements.

I recently traded in a 2001 Navigator with a little over 310,000 on it.  Original engine and tranny.  Didn't see that one on their list either.
