7 Vehicles To Survive The End Of The World

To survive an apocalyptic scenario requires imagination: many of the steps you take in preparation for a sudden change in your way of life come from thinking about abstract eventualities. You may not be able to perfectly replicate the resources that big movie heroes use to prevail in hard times, but such fictions are a healthy way to visualize possible outcomes–and possible solutions.

How hard have you thought about the kind of vehicle you might need in a survivalist scenario? There are several options. The Land Rover, for example, is a popular choice among the more practical-minded of us–noted not just for its versatility, but for its durability. Three out of every four Land Rovers ever built are still on the road–and this kind of reliability will be a huge plus in dangerous times.

Another hardy vehicle, with a bit more room to move in, is the classic Toyota Hilux. The producers of the British car show, Top Gear, put the thing on top of a 240-foot tower block which they then demolished: the Hilux just needed a handful of tweaks with hammers and wrenches to get it roadworthy again. When you consider the room it has in the back for provisions, possessions, and any extra bodies you need to take along in a quick escape, you’ll see it makes a good case against the aforementioned Land Rover.

Some vehicles you may read about are handy conversation-starters for ‘what-if’ cases: for example, the Action Mobil Desert Challenger, a 30-ton mobile home that’s surely beyond the economy of the average American. Yet take a look at the way its engineers have designed it, and you’ll find plenty of take-home lessons to apply to your own camper.

For a few more examples, check out this new infographic which takes seven extreme options and drops them into extreme scenarios. It may be the inspiration you need to take your preps to the next level.

    Unless those completely impractical over priced fuel guzzling vehicles have hardened EMS (engine management system) i.e. Computerized systems they will be expensive junk in the event of a solar flare or atomic EMP.
    Should have saved that article for the 1st April

      Well, 99% of it is. I do post fun articles every now and then, though. I also posted one about the best states for surviving a zombie apocalypse.

    Just wondering….. got gasoline, diesel, fuel? What you need to add is a portable refinery on a trailer.

    Not to carp and not offer a solution…..

    Add some form of electrical generation – wind, solar…. and you’re good to go.

    And I thought this was going to be informative, on to something better.

    Gotta love that Marauder, but I guess I’ll have to stick with my 94 4X4 Chevy pickup.

    I would like to get one of those scooters that average over 80 mpg though.

    I could agree on all and this is also one of posts with big quality,but that last car is ridiculos 🙂

    Expensive parts,spending a lot of gas and its close to the ground so it has alot of limit with reaching great deal of diferent terrains.

    Neat, but not at all realistic for the average prepper who will be lucky to even be able to afford a jeep.

    • Harry of Finland on January 27, 2017 at 3:56 pm

      Don’t forget bicyckle. It’s in fact one of most pracktical vehicles available.

      I will keep it tight.
