Just as there exists "lemon" vehicles. The worst combination of all the mediocre or mid-grade parts.
There also exists the exact opposite: an "apple" vehicle
By that I mean a vehicle that got (instead of mediocre parts) the best possible combination of parts, all packaged into one, just by chance.
From the standard deviation, the vehicle got the tranny/motor/axle/cooling system/turbo system/computer system/transfercase ect ect with the least variance in design/manufacture tolerances, that lending to the best and most useful lifespan of all the components that makes up the vehicles. This is VERY rare....but it happens.....more often than not with diesels matter of fact due to the heavy duty nature of the powertrain.
This is extremely rare in gas motors.
Most gas vehicles will get mostly good components, but a tranny or rear axle that will grenade @ 100k. One component usually singles itself out and fails long before the others.
Also, driving habits, maintenance and use within or outside of the intended design purposes ALL have influences on how long a vehicle lasts.
