Car Thefts Are Up, And Ford Pickups Are The Most Stolen Vehicles

For the second year running, Ford full-size pickup trucks are the most stolen vehicles in the US. In 2020, vehicle thefts increased by 11%, with a whopping 44,014 Ford trucks jacked. Yikes. The latest data comes from the National Insurance Crime Bureau and its annual Hot Wheels auto theft report, which highlighted the increase in auto thefts amid the pandemic.

To break the figures down into more easy-to-swallow information, someone stole a car every 36 seconds in 2020. It's easy to conclude from the data that thieves are more attracted to pickup trucks, but keep in mind that trucks are some of the most popular vehicles on the road these days. Chevy pickups saw an even larger increase, with 26% more of them stolen last year compared to 2019, while Fords saw a 14% increase. Dodge/Ram pickups clocked a 6.2% rise in thefts.
