The Trucks of Jurassic World

It’s been more than a few years since we witnessed the full-out rampage of Steven Spielberg’s Tyrannosaurus Rex in the original 1993 Jurassic Park movie. Now, more than two decades later, the blockbuster series is back with another installment, featuring a revamped park — and a new lineup of trucks and SUVs  — that are likely to be crushed or ripped to shreds by a bigger and more badass dinosaur.

Check out some of the toughest vehicles starring in the new action-packed Jurassic World film.

One look at the luxury carmaker’s six-wheeled off-road monster and you’re likely to forget all about the previously used Jeep Wranglers of the first Jurassic installment. The brand’s bad-boy pickup features huge 37-inch tires — and a 544-horsepower bi-turbo V8 coupled to an AMG Speedshift Plus 7G-tronic automatic — according to Business Insider. In addition, the engine spits out a total 560 pound-feet of torque.

Perhaps even more hardcore than the automaker’s wild G63 AMG 6X6 is the heavy-duty Unimog, a tough-looking Mercedes-Benz truck used as a mobile veterinary unit — or rather, a type of dinosaur ambulance, based on news from Motor Trend. If you thought the G63 was impressive, wait until you catch a glimpse of the Unimog and its massive wheels. In fact, if trapped inside the park, this vehicle is quite possibly your best chance at escaping the newest attraction: a terrifying, genetically enhanced hybrid creature known as the Indominus Rex.

Expect to see more Mercedes-Benz branding and less of Jeep’s SUVs in the fourth installment of Spielberg’s dino series. The German automaker was even so kind as to give us a major heads-up about one of its main vehicles — a four-by-four variant of the Sprinter cargo van — that stars in the new film. The model was showcased with metal barriers and theme-park badging (the whole shebang) earlier this year at the 2015 Work Truck Show and New York International Auto Show.

If you plan on seeing the new movie, keep an eye out for one of the original original 1992 Jeep Wranglers sporting the old Jurassic Park logo. In the film, two boys find the abandoned off-road vehicles and work to repair one of them in order to flee the vicious hybrid dinosaur. The Wranglers — last used over 20 years ago, per the storyline — is a shoutout to the first movie.

According to Internet Movie Cars Database, there is another vehicle — outside the realm of Mercedes-Benz models — that’s also worth checking out: the Steyr-Daimler-Puch Pinzgauer 6X6. The German online magazine 20 Minuten also mentions the tourist truck, which you can spot among a group of dinosaurs via the movie trailer, although the film is now in theaters in the U.S.
