The Most Stolen Vehicles in Canada – 2015 Edition

The Most Stolen Vehicles in Canada – 2015 Edition

Every year, the Insurance Bureau of Canada (IBC) compiles a list of the most frequently stolen vehicles in Canada for the preceding year. The 2015 edition of the report was just released. Is your vehicle on the list? We hope not, but read on to find out!

The Most Stolen Vehicles in Canada

If you own a Ford pickup truck, be on high alert! Ford F350s and F250s dominate the top 10, with the only exception being the 2006 Cadillac Escalade. According to Rick Dubin, the vice-president of Investigative Services for IBC, these vehicles are targeted because they do not include an electronic manufacturer immobilizer as a theft deterrent system. They are easier to steal as a result.

  1. 2005 Ford F350 (standard, 4-wheel drive, pickup)
  2. 2006 Ford F350 (standard, 4-wheel drive, pickup)
  3. 2007 Ford F350 (standard, 4-wheel drive, pickup)
