Report: GM looks to combat high theft rates on SUVs with added tech

2015 Cadillac Escalade, front three-quarter view

The Cadillac Escalade has been at or near the top of most-stolen and insurance-loss lists for more than seven years, until it dropped to number six earlier this year. In 2011 it was fitted with a host of new security features to address its easy-to-override features and that has brought the number of thefts down, but when eight of the ten most stolen rides are large SUVs from General Motors, no one will argue that something else needs to be done.

Thus, GM has fitted this same theft-deterring tech to the 2015 Suburban, Tahoe and Yukon. The Suburban and Tahoe will get the steering lock that the Escalade and Yukon already get, plus bolted-down third-row seats to deter thefts like this, stronger door lock cylinders and shields, and side-cut keys to inhibit picking.

Additional security measures in a Theft Protection Package can be purchased for $395, consisting of sensors on the greenhouse glass and interior, an incline/tilt sensor and added “key control systems” to make it more difficult for the men in black balaclavas to steal what you bought.

The extra content will be available in the first quarter of next year when the 2015 models get to dealerships. A press release below has more information on what’s coming for the Tahoe and Suburban.

This is a hunting rig built out of a 1989 Chevy Suburban with a Ford Aerostar grafted onto the roof. It is either an atrocity to vehicle aesthetics, or a tribute to American ingenuity. And yes, you drive it from the top. More »
