The “Chicago Tribune” had an expert from Cars.com put together this list of the top 10 getaway cars that bank robbers should choose.
The cars are based on a mix of being fast and forgettable . . . basically, he was looking for cars that get you away from the bank and quickly blend in with traffic.
#1.) Toyota Camry. So common on the roads you can dump it next to a dozen identical cars and walk away.
#2.) Ford Escape. The name alone makes it qualified.
#3.) Honda Element. Quote, “The plastic floors . . . [mean] it’s good for the exploding dye pack . . . and cleaning up flesh wounds.”
#4.) GMC Sierra. Big towing capacity in case you steal a large safe or vault.
#5.) Volkswagen Passat TDI. Good mix of speed and gas mileage . . . you can get almost 800 miles on a tank as you try to cross the border.
#6.) Hyundai Sonata. Good handling during chases, and it’s nice and generic.
#7.) Ram Cargo Van. You can wrap it up to disguise it as a delivery truck for a business or maybe even a postal van.
#8.) Ford F-150. It’s perfect for off-road high-speed chases.
#9.) Dodge Charger SRT-8. It can outrun any Chargers the police are driving . . . and also might blend in well enough to look like another cop car.
#10.) Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon. Very powerful, and strong enough to maintain high speeds with passengers and a lot of stolen cash.
