3 Trucks That Would Survive the Polar Vortex

The statistics are escalating, suggesting that over 187 million people are currently being smothered in a blanket of polar air. A portion of these people are trapped at the airport, considering that over 7000 flights have been canceled over the past two days. However, the majority of people are just sitting at home next to their computer, wishing they had an apocalyptic truck to take them away.

Well, if you’ve got the cash (or credit), we’ve got the solution:

Polar Toyota Tacoma

Why? Lightweight frame, snow shoes, and a supercharged DOHC 4.0-liter.

Toyota Hilux by Arctic Trucks

Why? Heavy duty battery, fuel/coolant heaters, and studded (run-flat) tires.

Subaru WRX Trax STI

Why? MOTEC tuned 2.5-liter turbo on a Mattrax rubber trax system.
