Is Your Car At Risk? Data Shows Most Popular Target For Car Thieves

Posted:

When it comes to choosing which cars to steal or break into, thieves apparently have favorites. And this year, those favorites have changed, experts say.

The Ford F-250 has replaced the Cadillac Escalade as the favorite target of thieves, according to figures released from the Highway Loss Data Institute. 

The Chevy Silverado and Avalanche trucks, GMC Sierra crew cab truck and Ford F-350 crew cab pickup are next on the list.

Cadillac Escalade's have dropped to sixth on the list, with four more GMC trucks and large SUV's rounding out the remainder.

Experts say new anti-theft technology on Escalade's have played a role in the decrease.

The institute says the rankings are based on the vehicles with the highest rates of insurance claims for theft.
