You may want to find an extra-secure place to park your Dodge Charger and Challenger SRT Hellcat. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's Highway Loss Data Institute says the Dodge muscle cars are the most stolen vehicle in America with 5 times the theft rate of the average car.  Closely following the leaders of most stolen are the Infinity Q50, Infiniti Q80 SUV, GMC Sierra 1500 crew cab truck, Dodge Challenger, Nissan Maxima, Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and Chrysler 300 round out the top ten.  As for the least-stolen vehicles, the BMW 3-Series 4-door is the safest in your driveway.  Are also the Tesla S and Tesla X models, the Chevrolet Equinox, Buick Encore SUV, Subaru Legacy, GMC Acadia, Subaru Forester, Volkswagen Beetle and Subaru Outback. The report pointed out last year's most stolen vehicle, the Cadillac Escalade, is nowhere to be found this time around. Most likely is due to better security features in the 2015 and newer models. The Institute had fewer theories about why no one seems interested in stealing the 3 Series, though it said that the fact that Teslas need to be charged—usually in a more secure location like a garage and not on the street—might account for its low numbers.
