Real off-roaders are amazing vehicles, because they simply can get to places where others can’t. The Mercedes-Benz Unimog has long been the king of rally support vehicles, and has seen a lot of action all over the world. Daimler just recently released information on their newly redesigned Unimog line. This is probably the truck I’d choose to take on the zombie apocalypse in.

The Mercedes-Benz Unimog comes in ten different models, including entry-level models. Compared to previous models, these have a lower center of gravity, higher ground clearance, an axle articulation of up to 30 degrees, LED headlights, improved cabins with better visibility, and tire inflation systems letting drivers choose the right pressure for different terrain.

The Unimog is available with new Euro 6 emission compliant engines, including a 5.1-liter turbodiesel and a 7.7-liter turbodiesel. They produce power ranging from 156 hp to 354 hp. The Unimog has an eight-speed forward transmission, which includes a six-speed reverse. The gearbox is semi-automatic.

All of these improvements should help the new Unimogs conquer even more difficult terrain than ever.
