The Five Best Cars to Survive a Sharknado

It's Shark Week, a time of year created by the Discovery Channel, a cable TV network. The frenzy around all-things shark also led to the "Sharknado" series on the SyFy network. These made-for-TV movies starring top B-list actors - yes, we know that's an oxymoron - are about (you guessed it) shark-filled funnel clouds. Mark your calendars: "Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!" airs on July 22 on the SyFy network.

The "Sharknado" movies are so bad that you can't help but watch them.

But what if man-eating sharks were really flying through the skies, chomping at your tail? What cars would make the best escape vehicles for such a traumatic if not completely unrealistic disaster? We found a few that will fit the bill.

Great white sharks are heading your way and you need to avoid panicked citizens while saving the damsel in distress. The nimble MX-5 Miata can zip around obstacles, and with the convertible's top down, you can still fight back against the falling fish.

Pure speed is as good a way as any to get away from a funnel cloud full of shark fins, and there aren't many four-doors faster than a 707-horsepower Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat. This full-size sedan has plenty of room inside in case the damsel is your spouse, and your offspring can easily fit in the roomy backseat too.

It won't be fast, but if there's a need for a mobile command center, the classic minivan can't be beat. The Town & Country's Stow 'n Go seats make it easy to create a huge cargo area for the gear needed to fend off the sharkpocalypse.

 

2015 Ram 1500

The Ram 1500's RamBox can be outfitted to hold a fishing pole, but that probably won't do much good against this kind of sport fish. The RamBox, however, could be the perfect place to stow an impromptu tool-turned-weapon when the need arises during the storm's most dramatic moment.

 

2015 Toyota 4Runner

Maybe the best way to escape a sharknado is to head off-road. If so, the 4Runner is a good bet, and it can tow a shark cage or two, if needed. The 4Runner's front end looks like an angry sea animal of its own, which might even scare off a few sharks.
