Alien invasion. Asteroids. Robot rebellion. Zombies.
Some of our favorite movies and shows revolve around the end of the world as we know it. What happens when shit hits the fan and we’re stuck living in the aftermath of a major catastrophe? You don’t want to be left stranded by the side of the road metaphorically OR literally. So, what vehicle would you choose to drive after the apocalypse? It would need to be rugged, able to drive over cracked asphalt, maybe over rocks or downed trees, through water, and maybe just out across the desert, woodlands, or prairies where there are no roads. Ever wondered what cars would keep you alive in the post-apocalyptic wasteland? Let’s take a look at some tough vehicles that could fit the bill—from regular cars to crazy vehicles that are a little harder to find.
1. Knight XV
The Knight XV is a fully armored SUV perfect to protect you from killer robots, cannibal biker gangs, or the zombie hordes. The glass in the Knight XV is bullet-proof, and the entire vehicle underwent ballistic penetration testing. This will come in handy if someone or something is chasing you. The Ford 6.8-liter V10 engine drinks bio-fuel, so you’ll need some handy when the trouble starts, but you can also make your own fuel in the future. Or you can opt for the 6.7-liter Power Stroke turbo diesel. The 63-gallon fuel tank holds enough gas to get you clear out of the city.
Manufactured by Conquest Vehicle Inc., production is limited to only 100 vehicles, making it hard to find. At least you’ll be comfy in the luxurious interior as you’re making your frantic getaway. Seating for six includes handcrafted Andrew Muirhead leather upholstery. Stay informed as you flee with the Alpine radio and navigation equipment if any radio stations are still on the air. Entertain the kiddos with movies played on the DVD player and shown on the dual screen rear console. Store snacks in the cooler box, and keep an eye out for monsters with the FLIR night vision cameras. The cost? $800,000. You need to plan ahead because it takes six months to get one after placing your order, so don’t wait until shit gets real.
