The Toyota Hilux, the overseas cousin to North America’s Toyota Tacoma, remains as popular as ever. For the past five years, it’s been the best-selling vehicle in Australia, a country that loves off-roading (and V8-powered muscle cars) as much as Americans. Unfortunately, the popularity of the Hilux has a downside: it’s one of the most stolen vehicles Down Under. Millions of owners are rightly concerned they’ll wake up one morning to find their truck stolen.
According to CarAdvice, Hilux thefts have more than doubled over the past decade, thanks in part to its growing popularity.
