1. Ford Escape - 1,014 Thefts
Last, but hardly least, the most popular stolen SUV/CUV last year was the 2009-2011 model years Ford Escape. Breaking the 1,000-theft mark with 1,014 thefts, the Escape is a compact crossover that was first introduced onto the market in 2000 as a ’01 model year. It’s priced below the Ford Explorer and was the result of a joint-development process with Japanese automaker Mazda. The American automaker recently made a huge gamble, giving its 2013 Ford Escape a huge change doing away with its traditional, boxy design.
