Every year thousands of vehicles are stolen in Michigan and throughout the United States.

Today, we're going to look at the 10 most stolen vehicles in the state of Michigan.

You would think in this day and age car companies would come up with something more to defend against the theft of newer vehicles. Yet, here we are in 2023 and criminals can still outsmart those big companies. It's true (sort of), the most stolen vehicle in Michigan is a 2020 model. It must be an easy one to snatch because there were 1,148 stolen in 2021.

We can't blame it entirely on the manufacturer as car owners are usually just as much to blame, if not more.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years.
