With shows like The Walking Dead
on, it’s pretty easy to see how easily a zombie apocalypse can happen. All it takes is one spill at a lab and before you know it your neighbors want you over for dinner, with your gray matter as the main course! While this idea is pretty far-fetched and only viable in the movies, having a vehicle that’ll get you out of the hot zone just in case isn’t a bad idea. Think you know what makes a great anti-zombie truck? Check out our choices below and leave your in the comments. Just do yourself a favor and don’t drive it to a mall if the zombies really do come, trust me, it’s a bad idea
There’s a truck out there that can do just about anything. From serving as a fire/rescue platform to doing roadwork and even cutting grass in fields and beside highways, it does it all. It’s a snowplow, a military vehicle, and even a railway vehicle. In case you didn’t guess, we’re talking about the Mercedes-Benz Unimog
. The Unimog has been around for longer than any other truck in this list, and for good reason. This do-it-all vehicle can go anywhere and do just about anything, and it’s this reason why the Unimog is one of the best trucks for the zombie apocalypse. No matter which version you can get your hands on, the one you get will serve you pretty well and if you’re lucky enough to find one with a grass cutting attachment, we’re sure you’ll be able to figure out a good way to use it for defense.

Sadly, this is one tough vehicle to find in the United States, but if you’re overseas when things get bad, or if you’re in the US and you happen to be Arnold Schwarzenegger
, you should have no trouble finding one.
Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon LAPV 6.X
Speaking of Mercedes-Benz trucks, the Unimog isn’t the only vehicle the German automaker produces that’s great for a zombie apocalypse, the G-Wagon LAPV 6.X
is based off the high-class G-Wagon, but is completely transformed into an armored patrol vehicle that can do anything from deflect mines to stop bullets and even biting zombies. This wild Mercedes is armored from head to toe, can carry 1.3 tons of gear, and even inflate and deflate the tires from inside the cab. With all these features, you’ll be safe from zombies and dangerous survivors alike.
Conquest Knight XV
While pure ruggedness is great, if you’re spending a lot of time in your survival vehicle, which you probably will, you’ll definitely want some comfort to go along with all that durability, too. This is where the Conquest Knight XV
comes in. On the outside this beautiful SUV has ballistic glass, full armor, and even FLIR
night vision cameras for both front and rear view. Inside, all this ruggedness gives way to one of the nicest interiors you probably have ever seen. From luxury carpeting to ultra-suede seating and multiple video screens, it’s sure to make the zombie apocalypse one of the most comfortable you’ll ever see.

What happens when someone who originally designed the amazing sights you see at Disney World decides to create the ultimate survival vehicle for his daughter? Well, if you have basically unlimited funds you can buy yourself the KiraVan
and find out for yourself. The KiraVan is based off of the Unimog but after that base frame just about everything else is changed. With a range of 2,000 miles and enough supplies to keep three people going for three weeks, the KiraVan might just be the best option when things go bad.
Paramount Group Marauder
Easily the coolest looking truck in this list, the Marauder
will go over just about anything and survive flat tires with runflat technology, high explosives, and even cross water
that comes up to half of it’s height. Heck, those runflat tires can take a 12.7mm bullet hit and keep going! The Marauder can get up to about 75 MPH if you give it a little time, making this massive go-anywhere truck one of the fastest ways to crush a car you’ve ever seen.
