The 2020 numbers on car theft in the United States are now in, as compiled by the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB). Year after year, a quick perusal of the ranking of most-stolen vehicles is always an interesting enterprise, for one thing to see what are the most sought-after “popular” models, but also the quirky details that leave us scratching our heads. This year, that detail involves the particular model-years favoured by car thieves in 2020.
First things first: as usual, the most popular vehicle is also the most stolen. The Ford F-150 and its heavy-duty Super Duty versions top the list. Of concern is that 13 percent more of the pickups were stolen in 2020 compared to 2019. Across the industry, there was a disturbing 11-percent jump in vehicle thefts last year over the year before.
