Two Dodge vehicles topped the Highway Loss Data Institute (HLDI)’s list of vehicles most likely to be stolen from the 2016-2018 model years.
The Dodge Charger Hemi and Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat were the most likely vehicles to be stolen, followed closely by Infiniti’s QX 50 4-door and QX 80 SUV. The GMC Sierra 1500 Crew Cab rounds out the top 5. The HLDI, which is part of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), focuses on “whole vehicle thefts” using insurance claim data to establish “relative claim frequency” for each vehicle, with a score of 100 as the average. The Charger Hemi’s claim frequency score topped out at 544.
The BMW 3-series Sedan was the least likely vehicle to be stolen, coming in with a claim frequency score of 4. It was followed by two Tesla Models, the X and the S, the Chevrolet Equinox and Buick Encore. Notably absent from this year’s list is the Cadillac Escalade, the luxury SUV that often appears at or near the top of most stolen vehicle lists.
