Top 10 Most Stolen Cars in Illinois

Top 10 Most Stolen Cars in Illinois

We may all have a “dream car” that we would like to buy someday, but beyond that dream, are you very picky about what kind of car you drive? I’m not, and I realize I’m probably in the minority because of that.

What do you look for when buying a new car?

When it comes to buying a new (or used) car, my requirements are pretty simple; I want it to look good, ride well, meet the needs of my family and not cause me any problems. I’m not picky about what brand of car I drive, the color or even the style most of the time. I just don’t want lemons.

If you are in the market for a new vehicle, you should probably be aware that: moneygeek.com I just published a new list of the most stolen cars in Illinois, and I bet many of you now have one of these makes and/or models in your driveway.

The Most Stolen Cars in Illinois

Before we get into the most stolen cars in Illinois, let me tell you that according to Money Geek’s findings, a full-size Ford Pickup Truck is the most stolen car in all of America. If you’re driving a Ford truck and you’re freaking out a little right now, relax. That’s not the case in Illinois… Full-size Ford trucks were at number 6.

This is the top 10 most stolen cars in Illinois according to: moneygeek.com

10. 2017 Ford Fusion

9. 2019/2020 Honda Accord

8. 2000 Honda Civic

7. 2019 Dodge Charger

6. 2005 Ford Pickup (large size)

5. 2007 Toyota Camry

4. 2008 Chevrolet Impala

3. 2020 Nissan Altima

2. 2018 Chevrolet Malibu

1. 2015 Jeep Cherokee/Grand Cherokee

I don’t know about you, but I’m a little surprised that the latest car brand on that list is from 2020. If you risk jail time for car theft, wouldn’t you big or go home?

But seriously, Money Geek’s article says that factors that lead to these vehicle models being stolen more often than others are, how easy it is to steal them and the high demand for these vehicle parts.

If you own or have been thinking about buying one of these makes/models, you’ll probably need to set aside some cash to install high-quality anti-theft equipment. Prevention is better than cure.

WATCH: See how much gas it cost in the year you started driving

To learn more about how the price of gas has changed over the years, Stacker calculated the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the past 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the consumer price index (CPI) for unleaded gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gasoline over time and rediscover how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
