Catalytic Converter Theft: 10 Cars Thieves Target

5. 1999–2021 Chevrolet Silverado

Pickup trucks like the Chevrolet Silverado are great when it comes to towing and hauling, or traversing rugged terrain. Like other pickups in this list, the go-anywhere capability and extra ground clearance afforded by the Silverado means it’s easier for crooks to slither under this full-size pickup and remove its catalytic converter. For 1999, the long-running Chevrolet C/K truck lineup passed the torch to the newly-introduced Silverado. Over the years, the Silverado has been available with a wide range of four-cylinder, inline-six, V-6, and V-8 engines. That variety is great for truck buyers. It’s also no-less enticing to catalytic converter thieves.
