Sunday’s debut of AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead—and the inevitable onslaught of a whole new horde of ravenous zombies—got us thinking: In a world gone mad, which rides would we most want at our disposal? You’ve gotta be ready for anything—and the following wheels fit the bill…
Ford Raptor A clever disguise is often the best tactic for survival, which makes the Ford Raptor a keen asset. Most would never suspect the 400-plus horsepower F-150 variant is capable of jumping from freeways to sand dunes, thanks to a shift-on-the-fly 4WD system.
Google Driverless Car Some assume when the apocalypse happens, all power will be lost, but that might not be the case. In the event technology becomes a primary tool for survival, an autonomous car would be a major asset.
Honda Accord It might seem a bit too practical when considering the “last vehicles standing.” But as one of the most reliable cars over the past decades, the Honda Accord could be handy in a world where anything could go wrong. We say the older, the better.
Hummer H1 As one of the toughest vehicles ever built, the Hummer H1 is a must-have military machine in any dire survival situation. The civilian variant has proven to be one of the most capable vehicles in the world, both on land and in water.
Local Motors Rally Fighter When all public resources give way to complete madness, you’ll need highly adaptable vehicle for navigating poorly maintained roads. With the ability to quickly adjust to the toughest rural and city terrain, the Local Motors Rally Fighter is your best bet.
Mercedes–Benz G63 AMG 6x6 Even in survival mode, you need a little luxury. This SUV features all the amenities we’ve come to expect from Mercedes packed into one of the most capable off-road vehicles the automaker has ever built.
Ford Expedition If you’re lucky enough to have a few friends left when the planet is overrun by zombies, you’ll need a dependable vehicle for carrying the rest of the troops. Despite its notorious rep for sucking up gas, the Ford Expedition is up to that task.
Nissan GT-R Nismo With a 0 to 60 time of 3.2 seconds, the GT-R could prove to be a major asset in dodging even the fastest foes. And with a nickname like Godzilla, the 545 horsepower beast seems ready-made to make its mark on a post-apocalyptic planet.
Ram 3500 When it comes to intimidation, the Ram Heavy Duty 3500 is among the most menacing looking pick-ups on the planet. Now available with a 6.7-liter Cummins turbo diesel engine, this truck could still go even when fuel supplies run low.
Toyota Hydrogen Fuel-Cell Vehicle In the end times, traditional gas could become a lost commodity, making the Toyota Hydrogen Fuel-Cell vehicle a hot prospect. The alternative-powered car has the ability to go 300 miles on one five-minute fill up, which could totally save your life.
