The Highway Loss Data Institute has released its 2010 numbers for vehicles most frequently targeted for theft. This list is created by comparing the number of insured vehicles to number of theft claims. Though pickups are becoming targets more and more often, the Cadillac Escalade still tops the list. The amount paid out for each claim is going up, though total thefts are going down.

10. Chevy Corvette Z06

Though it is attractive and has a big engine, this car is stolen 1.7 times for every 1,000 vehicles. Insurance companies are skittish about this car, though, because it costs them over $ 41,000 every time a claim is paid.

9. Pathfinder Armada by Nissan

Nissan Pathfinder Armada vehicles are stolen about .45 percent of the time. Average insurance claim on these vehicles are about $ 12,458.

8. GMC Yukon

The Yukon is stolen an average of .57 percent of the time. Per claim, the average payment is $ 9,499.

7. The Hummer H2

The Hummer H2 is not only more likely to be stolen, it is most likely to be ticketed. There is a .62 percent chance that a Hummer H2 will be stolen.

6. Dodge Charger with a HEMI

The Dodge Charger with a HEMI has a .71 percent chance of being stolen.

5. G37 from Infiniti

Though the Infiniti is just as likely to be stolen as the Dodge Charger, it has a slightly higher insurance payout.

4. Chevy Avalanche 1500

The Avalanche is stolen .74 percent of the time.

3. Silverado 1500 crew cab

Trucks are being stolen more and more often. For every 1,000 Chevy Silverado vehicles on the road, about eight are stolen.

2. Crew cab Ford F-250

A total of 9.7 Ford F-250 crew cab trucks are stolen for every 1,000 of them on the road.

1. Escalade by Cadillac

The Cadillac Escalade is the most stolen vehicle yet again. Out of 1,000 Escalades, 10.8 of them are stolen.
