I remember as I really started to notice cars in the late '70's - early '80's that MB, Volvo, and Saab were cars famous for their reliability. By the end of the decade the Japanese had swooped in and Honda and Toyota seemed to hold that title for about twenty years. As I survey the new car landscape now, there doesn't seem to be any contender for that throne.

Have we seen the end of legendary reliability? Is it just that mechanicals now are enough better that no one marque stands apart?

Or is there a maker today making such cars and I just am ignorant of it?

I think Toyota is still doing well. The Tacoma and Corolla anyhow.

With the introduction of variable valve timing and direct fuel injection, yes.

Dont forget the 2003 and up Crown Vics. I see more 400,000 mile and above than any other car thru this shop than any other make. after all the years of small changes they got it right.

compared to 70s vehicles, all modern cars (well, most...) are crazy reliable with little but specific service.
But interesting question, what current car will be a legend?

I don't know, but maybe still some japanese 4 cyl small truck?
