Top 10 Most Stolen Luxury Cars From MY 2010 to 2012
Even with all the high-tech features today’s luxury vehicles come with, they’re not immune to being stolen. If you’re curious to see what the top 10 most stolen luxury vehicles from the 2010-2012 model years are, you’ve come to the right place.
In total, 4,384 luxury vehicles were reported stolen in the U.S. between January 1, 2009 to December 31, 2012 with the state of California being reported with the highest number of luxury vehicle thefts. Breaking down the luxury vehicle thefts by class, 2,150 of the thefts were compact luxury vehicles while 1,734 mid-sized luxury vehicles were stolen from 2009-2012. The remaining 500 luxury vehicles stolen were in the premium luxury class.
The Ford Ranger has been on the market for 12 years in its current incarnation, and while the Ford F-Series might be America’s favorite truck, the Ranger doesn’t look like its slowing down any time soon either.
With the April sales numbers released yesterday, Pickuptrucks.com made the startling discovery that in April of 2010, the Ranger outsold some pretty good cars like the Ford Mustang, Ford Flex, Honda Fit, Chevrolet Suburban and the Mercedes C-Class. The Ranger is also beating the Flex, Fit and Suburban in Year-To-Date sales.
We’re not exactly sure what would compel anybody to buy a Ford Ranger, but the low price-tag and durable construction must be appealing for a certain section of consumers. Then again, everyone loves a good underdog story, and a 12 year old pickup beating the entry level Mercedes in the sales race? You couldn’t make that up.
