The most stolen cars in 2021, the most recent data released by the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) in its annual Hot Wheels report, were both full-size pickups. 

Chevrolet and Ford full-size pickups topped the NICB list for the second year in a row. In third place nationwide is the Honda Accord. And while one or both of the two trucks were the most stolen in many states, some have others at the top of the list.

To find out which car is the most commonly stolen in your state, take a look the NICB’s state-by-state data below.

How to protect your vehicle from theft

While many tips for preventing theft are common sense, they bear repeating.

  • Make sure you remove your keys from the ignition and never leave your car running
  • Lock your doors and close your windows
  • Park in a well-lit area or in a secured area or garage
  • Install security devices

What type of insurance covers your car for theft?

To have coverage if your car is stolen, you need to carry comprehensive insurance. Also called other-than-collision, this coverage is an option but will be required if you have a loan or lease.

Comprehensive insurance is usually sold along with collision and can be very affordable. However, you might pay more for car insurance if your car makes the NICB’s Hot Wheels list.
