It turns out that the most stolen cars in ArkLaTex likely are not cars at all.

The National Insurance Crime Bureau released its annual Hot Wheels report Wednesday.

It identifies the vehicles that were stolen most often nationwide last year.

The report also includes data for each state.

In the U.S., the most stolen cars are older models of Honda Accords and Civics made before smart keys came along.

"Since the introduction of smart keys and other anti-theft technology, Honda thefts have fallen precipitously," the bureau reports.

But the vehicles most stolen in 2016 in Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas are trucks.

Pickups, to be exact, that are more than 10 years old.

Following are the bureau's rankings for the most stolen vehicles nationwide and by state:
