Worst vehicle for theft: Ford F-250 Super Duty Crew Cab (4WD)
7 per 1,000 vehicle years
The F-250 Super Duty Crew Cab 4WD takes first place on the HLDI's rankings thanks to, as with other vehicles on the list, an open bed and frequent use at construction sites.
"Rather than being a black eye for the F-250, what I think the study really shows is that bigger trucks are more likely to have theft claims," Moore says.
Researchers found that insurance companies paid F-250 Crew Cab owners $7,060 on average for last year's theft claims. That translates into an extra $50 in insurance costs for every 2010-12 version of the vehicle still on the road.
