4. Nissan Altima

The Camry and Accord aren’t the only two sedans to come from Japan that have made an impact on the car world. The Altima has been around since the 80s and the car continues to deliver great value. Nissan markets the Altima as a sportier family sedan, and consumer loyalty shows exactly how that benefits the car. Average ownership is 7.2 years. The standard engine in the Altima is one of the most reliable. You’ll notice that the Altima has a smooth exterior style, and Nissan has held to this formula.

The Altima has offered a variety of different packages, including a Hybrid version. Whether you want a brand new Altima or a used one, this car is an exceptional value. The Altima offers the reliability of the Nissan brand and the sportiness drivers look for in a sedan. Who says a family sedan has to be boring after all?

3. GMC Sierra 1500

One of the original automotive brands in the world is GMC. The truck division of GM has been the staple of workforces and farms for decades. The Sierra is the corporate clone of the Silverado, but the Sierra has a longer average owner. Part of the reason for this is the fact that the Sierra is a more upmarket truck. The Silverado is a basic no-frills work vehicle. Most of the time, they’re beaten up pretty badly.

Modern incarnations of the GMC Sierra 1500 feature everything from leather seating to navigation. The Sierra has come a long way since the early days of the brand. In recent years, GM has invested a good deal of money into developing the Sierra. The truck offers all of the comforts of a luxury vehicle with the workhorse nature of the Silverado.

2. Dodge Ram/Ram 1500

In addition to the Sierra, there’s another pickup truck that also has a loyal following. The Ram 1500 has been on a rampage since the redesign in the early 90s. Consumers just can’t get enough of the big-rig styling and the unique engine options. The Ram brand has come a long way and owners usually keep these around for 7.5 years. The Ram brand offers everything from a chassis cab to 1500.

Today’s Ram 1500 offers one of the largest digital displays in the pickup truck industry. In addition to that, there’s also the rare SRT-10, which features a Viper engine. The Ram 1500 has been a sales success for the company. If you want a truck that can handle just about anything, as well as stay running for years to come, the Ram 1500 is the perfect combination of value and functionality.

1. Nissan Rogue

Yes, even Nissan has entered the compact SUV race. The Rogue started as something unique-looking unlike anything else on the road in terms of a small SUV. The four-cylinder engine has enough pep to propel the SUV with authority. The interior is roomy and features most of the latest technology to make the SUV rather comfortable. When it comes to competition from the Rav4 and the CR-V, the Rogue can hold its own. Average ownership is around 5.3 years, which is about the time it takes for a new model year.

The Rogue has been one of the best-selling vehicles for Nissan. It offers versatility like the Pathfinder but in a more fuel-efficient package. In a world of crossover vehicles, it’s nice to see an SUV that still sticks to its guns as a versatile vehicle. The Rogue is due for a redesign soon, but the current model is still a competitive product.
