Save Christmas By Picking Santa's New Ride
December 8, 2016
It turns out elves make lousy auto technicians, and Santa’s sleigh isn’t drivable anymore. Now he has to give it up and upgrade to something a little better. Christmas depends on it!

Curious about what Santa’s looking for in a new car? Here’s a quick look.
Something Stronger Than Reindeer
Santa’s sleigh was pulled by nine reindeer. Assuming reindeer have similar horsepower to a horse, and since a single horse has about 14.9 horsepower (weird, but true), we’re looking at a horsepower total of about 134 HP. If you’re interested in auto technology, you probably know that’s not a lot of power for pulling jolly old St. Nick’s overflowing bag of toys.
Want Santa to love his new ride? Pick something more powerful. Anyone else for a 440 HP Ford Super Duty?
Something With a Little Comfort
Ever get caught driving in bad weather with the top down? Imagine driving like that through snowstorms for hundreds of years, all while way up high in the freezing sky. No wonder Santa’s cheeks are so rosy.
Want to treat Santa Claus right? Pick something with seat warmers and a nice, big cup holder for his cocoa. And get the man a roof and windshield, for goodness’ sake!
Christmas is approaching fast, so hurry!
