Default Is 400,000 miles really possible from

I've got a new 2017 Ford F-150 XL longbed. It's only got 3,000 miles on it and, so far, I'm happy with it. A fellow I met in a Lowe's parking lot told me that his old 150 has "over 400,000 miles on it"! Is that even possible? Dave/Inverness, Florida

Anything can last as many miles as you want as long as you keep putting work/money into it. Buddy's square-body chevy has 400K miles. It's on it's 3rd tranny and 2nd engine. It's all relative.

Why not? If it's well cared for and not beat there is no a reason you can't go 400k.

Very few will have 400k miles on the original engine and transmission. If they are the original, there is a good bet its at least had a rebuild. With that said, I am sure there are some though.

I don't know man. I wore out my last truck, I mean wore out the driveline and the motor wasn't tired in the least at a 170k miles. The transmission was leaking a bit out the driveshaft seal but functioned well. I think the motor and transmission easily had another 100k miles in if not more, but the rest of the truck needed to be rebuilt. brakes, rear end, and suspension were all shot. I think that truck if I had not driven it so hard, could have gone 400k. I suspect whoever purchased it at auction put it back together and it's running fine now.

My cousins husband has a 10th gen he bought for his sawmill- hes had it for years- it had over 400,000 a few years ago!- yes, its been worked on and maintained, but its the original engine and transmission ( although i think he said the trans had been rebuilt) . Like the other poster said, its how much time and money do you want to invest- given the price of new or newer trucks, you can afford to spend a little to keep your truck in good shape nowadays!

A Tundra V8 can last a million miles with very little wear on the original engine. Maybe a Ford will to.

My old boss's Suburban had over 650k miles on it.

I may botch the numbers a bit, but I know he said he was on his 5th or 6th transmission, multiple AC unit replacements, differentials, etc... Never changed the oil after 250k because it burned it so fast he just needed to add more.

Long story short, a vehicle will run as long as you're willing to spend money on it.
