Pick-Ups Picked by Thieves Most: Top 10 Vehicles Targeted

Based on rates of insurance claims for theft, the Ford F-250 unseated the Cadillac Escalade as the favorite target for thieves, according to the Highway Loss Data Institute.

"General Motors has put a lot of effort into new antitheft technology, so that may help explain the decline in the Escalade's theft rate," says HLDI Vice President Matt Moore. "On the other hand, sales of the Escalade have fallen in recent years, so there may be less of a market for stolen Escalades or Escalade parts."
