The Highway Loss Data Institute’s most stolen vehicle was release with and the top of the chart is occupied by a pair of Dodge.
Every year, the Highway Loss Data Institute (HLDI) releases their “vehicles with the highest claim frequencies for whole-vehicle theft” list. This year, a pair of Dodges tops the chart.
This year, a regular on the charts is missing. Can you spot it?
If you said the Cadillac Escalade, you are correct. The large luxury SUV, which previously dominated this list is absent this year. It was replaced by the, previously mentioned, Infiniti QX80 as well as Land Rover Range Rover.
The HLDI notes that since 2015, Cadillac added more antitheft features, including “glass breakage sensors, motion detectors and an inclination sensor that triggers an alarm if someone tries to take the wheels off, tow the vehicle or lift it onto a flatbed truck”.
“The models most likely to be stolen tend to be powerful, pricey or pickups, but vehicle theft is also a crime of opportunity,” says HLDI Senior Vice President Matt Moore. “Better security features on all vehicles would be the best way to address the problem.”
Here’s the Top 10 most stolen vehicles according to the Highway Loss Data Institute:
- Dodge Charger HEMI
- Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat
- Infiniti Q50 4-door
- Infiniti QX80
- GMC Sierra 1500 crew cab
- Dodge Challenger
- Nissan Maxima
- Chevrolet Silverado 1500 crew cab
- Chrysler 300 4WD
- Mercedes-Benz S-Class 4-door long-wheelbase 4WD
