You might think the Ferrari’s and sports cars would be at the top of the car theft list. Flashy, colorful and fast… but that is not the case. The National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) today released its annual Hot Wheels report which identifies the 10 most stolen vehicles in the United States. The report examines vehicle theft data submitted by law enforcement to the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) and determines the vehicle make, model and model year most reported stolen in 2014.

The following are the top 10 2014 model year vehicles stolen during calendar year 2014:

1.   Ford Pickup Full Size             


2.   Toyota Camry                     


3.   Ford Fusion                     


4.   Chevrolet Impala                


5.   Nissan Altima                  


6.   Dodge Charger                    


7.   Taotao Industry Co.  Scooter/Moped


8.   Toyota Corolla                


9.   Chevrolet Cruze                         


10. Ford Focus                      


Although vehicle theft has been on a long downward trajectory, it is still a severe economic hardship for many to lose their vehicle to theft—especially if a vehicle is uninsured. That is why NICB continues to advise all drivers to review our four “Layers of Protection”:  

  • Common Sense:  Lock your car and take your keys.  It’s simple enough, but many thefts occur because owners make it easy for thieves to steal their cars.
  • Warning Device:  Having and using a visible or audible warning device is another item that can ensure that your car remains where you left it.
  • Immobilizing Device:  Generally speaking, if your vehicle can’t be started, it can’t be stolen. “Kill” switches, fuel cut-offs and smart keys are among the devices that are extremely effective.
  • Tracking Device:  A tracking device emits a signal to the police or to a monitoring station when the vehicle is stolen.  Tracking devices are very effective in helping authorities recover stolen vehicles.  Some systems employ “telematics,” which combine GPS and wireless technologies to allow remote monitoring of a vehicle.  If the vehicle is moved, the system will alert the owner and the vehicle can be tracked via computer.
