2. Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6
Take the precision dependability of the Mercedes-Benz, wrap it up in a rugged 6×6 package, and you have the G63 AMG. This fearless vehicle will navigate through hot desert, rugged mountains, sand dunes, and even through water up to three feet deep. The huge tires give it adequate ground clearance to negotiate downed trees, rocks flung into the roadways, and any other debris that may be littering the roads. This is a great rig to make your getaway in. With seating for four (a fifth could sit on the rear console in case of emergency) and a pickup bed for stowing all your survival equipment in, you’ll be all set to make your escape.
The three fixed axles operate independently, giving the best stability for any terrain you find yourself driving on. The G63 is powered by the AMG 5.5-liter V8 bi-turbo engine that is coupled with the AMG Speedshift Plus 7G-Tronic automatic transmission. Good luck on finding one, however. If you do, you may be looking at a hefty price tag of nearly a million bucks used, even though the sticker price for a new one is a mere $511,000—disaster-ready vehicles ain’t cheap, guys. According to rumors, new ones won’t be sold in the U.S. European preppers, take note.
