If it can be taken as a compliment when your own automotive design inspires shameless copycats, then surely, knowing that your vehicle is among the most commonly-stolen models is more flattery than an automaker can bear.
To that end, according to Canada’s CTV News, a recent report from the Insurance Bureau of Canada has found that nine of the top ten slots on a list of the most-stolen vehicles in Canada are occupied by Ford Super Duty pickup trucks – specifically the F-250 and F-350. The only vehicle to make the top ten list that isn’t a Ford Super Duty model was the Cadillac Escalade SUV.
CTV News reports that Canadian border guards routinely come across shipping containers full of car and truck parts, trying to fool inspectors. Border Patrol has recovered more than $10 million in stolen vehicles at ports this year, although it’s uncertain how much of that is in Ford Super Duty pickups specifically.
The Ford Authority Take
It’s bears remembering that Ford Super Duty trucks are routinely company-owned work vehicles. This is important as it could conceivably be the case that these trucks, left unattended at the job site, are generally less-carefully looked after than the average privately-owned vehicle.
