The National Insurance Crime Bureau released their annual Hot Wheels list Monday, which uses law enforcement data determine the 10 most stolen vehicles in America.

“While older vehicles still dominate our Hot Wheels most stolen list, the number of late model vehicles with anti-theft protection on the list goes to show that technology isn’t foolproof,” said NICB president and CEO Joe Wehrle. “Criminals are doing their best to defeat anti-theft technology through hacking and other means while, at the same time, manufacturers and others are working to improve security.”
