The Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat muscle car is more than 60 times as likely to be stolen as the average 2020-22 model year vehicle, topping all other vehicles in a study released today by the Highway Loss Data Institute.
Dodge Charger and Challenger models with large engines frequently top the group's annual list, but the rate at which the Charger SRT Hellcat is stolen is spiking. There were about 25 whole-vehicle theft claims per 1,000 vehicles for the 2020-22 model years, up from 18 for 2019-21 models.
"If you own a Hellcat, you better check your driveway," Matt Moore, Highway Loss Data Institute senior vice president, said in a news release. "These numbers are unbelievable."
