I know that the topic seems somewhat funny to you. It indeed is! In the 21st century where science rules over our mind, it is difficult to imagine a situation like some zombie apocalypse.
For those rarest people who do not know what a zombie is, it is a human (sort of!) but it is dead. In simple words, when dead human start walking around you and become predators, they are called zombies. And when these zombies start gathering in hordes, it is called zombie apocalypse. It is surely hard to imagine a situation like zombie apocalypse in today’s world. But is there any harm if we discuss about the situation? Let our imagination come to life for a moment!
We have seen zombies in movies and TV series till now, but have you ever imagined what will you do if you wake up one morning and there is an apocalypse in your city? You cannot stay at a place; you have to keep moving and moving on foot will be really risky. And your everyday vehicles will not do the job as well. Here are 12 vehicles which are sure to help you survive in a zombie apocalypse –
1. CHEVROLET SILVERADO BLACK OPS
Yep, the name is really the one used in movies, but this truck will very well be helpful. As a matter of practical fact, the Chevy is a solid mini truck specially built for unknown emergencies. And an apocalypse is surely a big emergency. The Silverado Black ops is a fully loaded 4×4 truck which is powered by a heavy 5.3 liter EcoTec3 V8 engine had has nearly 355 ponies of power. Added to these are the solar power pack, Lower body armor, raised suspension, And if you add your things like First aid kit, a plenty of food and water, you are not going to die too soon!
2. FORD E-53 TRUCK
To be frank, your everyday cars are not going to run for long in an apocalyptic world, and those which you are going to use to survive will not be easy to drive. And the Ford E-53 comes in that list.
But, in the situation of a zombie attack, this truck is surely going to be a big gift for you, if you have one. It is literally like a loaded military gun running on wheels. Powered by a very common engine, it may not sound very appealing, but the other features will help. It is enough spacious for you to carry your supplies, or for your living, or even for trapping the naughty zombies! It also comes with inbuilt repairablr parts and is very easy to repair.
3. M1 ABRAMS
No, it is not a car or a bus or a truck. It is a tank, a military tank. And since the fuel in tanks is much limited, it is surely not for daily use. But in case of hand-to-hand with the zombies, you will not get any better option.
It is a very common tank in America, but obviously getting a tank is a lot more difficult than thinking of having one. But, in a post apocalyptic world, who is going to stop you from running into the military bases and getting one M! for yourself? In that situation, do not think and go for one!
4. KETTENKRAD HK 101
This one was used by the Germans during World War II, and can be depended upon. The Kettenkrad is somewhat the addition of a tank in a motorcycle. Or it is a compatible tank in the form of a motorcycle.
Very less of these are left in the present time, and these are either in museums or with some rich collectors, so you have to rather find it in the former for your safety. The Kettenkrad is well known for its ability to penetrate through deep forests where cars and even trucks can’t go. It can also tow a small trailer, so you can store your supplies as well.
5. 2010 FORD FUSION HYBRID
There is one more Ford creation in the list. It may seem as a normal car in first sight, but is a really reliable one if you want to survive in a post apocalyptic world within your budget (there are some who still think of budget even during dangers!).
If you have one of this in your garage, then you can be safe for a really long time. The US News rates this 9.4 outta 10 in case of reliability. And the truth is that it is far more reliable and safe then other cars in a budget. This really simple and easy to repair car is powered by a hybrid engine with an average of 38 MPG. It has solid built and you can slam into some undead if you want, and has enough space for supplies and people. And you can want some extra protection on it if you want added protection as well!
6. 2017 KIA NIRO HYBRID
When you are stuck in the middle of a zombie apocalypse, what will you prefer, a lovely long drive or a safe journey to your survival place? Obviously you will choose the latter. The Niro is sure to start and take you to your destination.
It is swift running car with an engine that revs it up to 50 MPG, and has some advanced safety features and is spacious as well. It has great fuel efficiency and will provide enough speed as compared to the undead chasing you. But be aware not to crash into any of them!
7. MERCEDES MAYBACH G650 LANDAULET
It is a big name right? But just as the name, the car will save you big time as well. If you want to enjoy your life amidst the deadly brain eaters, you can drive safely and comfortably in this Merc G650.
It is Mercedes’ proven G-Class and it has whopping 621 horsepower run engine and has enough ground clearance to drive through all kinda terrains. And it will give you enough speed to leave the uninvited guests far behind.
8. GIBBS AMPHIBIANS BISKI
You know what amphibians are, don’t you? This motorbike can run on ground and sail in the water as well!
It is a two-wheeler with 80 mph speed on ground and 37 mph on water. So while running if you have a lake ahead, don’t wait and just jump in. By the way, switching from bike to ski takes less than five seconds. So, you have enough speed to outrun your foes!
9. RIPSAW EV2
It is a stylish mixture of car and tank, but also has various other saving features. What makes it unique is its durability and comfort. It travels very fast as it is powered by 600 diesel-fueled horsepower. The outer armor can thwart zombies face down and the 12 inch suspension travel can run through any substance in your way, I repeat right through any obstacle. You get comfort with the leather seats and LED lighting inside the thick armor, and safety comes free.
10. GIBBS HUMDINGA
Did I just feature another Gibbs on the list? Yes, I did. Incidentally, the Humdinga is amphibious as well. But if you are planning to take your family with you, then you should prefer this.
With the roads full of zombies running mad everywhere, you can prefer the waterway too. And this beast gives you high flying speeds on the land, and more than 30 mph on water. So, take your family in, push a button and sail through the waters where zombies can’t swim!
11. MERCEDES BENZ ZETROS 2733 6×6
You must have seen the Hollywood movie Transformers right? If you have, then you must know Optimus Prime. The Zetros is the real life version of it.
The 6×6 truck can keep you safe in almost any environment and is comfortable from inside as well. It boats a 7.2 liter diesel inline six engine with 326 horsepower rev and 959 pound-feet of torque. Inside the beast you get heated marble floors, a shower, beds, two LED Flat screen TVs and all those things that will make you forget the cruel world outside. Everything is powered by diesel generator, so as long as you can fuel it, you will have your second home to live!
12. LOCAL MOTORS RALLY FIGHTER
If we are already talking about Transformers, then let’s continue with it. This vehicle has featured in the Transformers: Age of Extinction as a black ops unit of the CIA.
Why is it so reliable? It is open-roofed, has Corvette engine, has Ford truck rear end (it is the truth!) and has enough ground clearance to mow through the road walkers. It is really stylish, but is built with rather simple parts which will be easy to find and replace if it breaks down anyway. You have to just rev up the engine and run through the brain eaters with style!
