Winter driving in the Philadelphia, Doylestown, Mechanicsburg, and Flemington areas can be rather varied. With not-so-ideal road conditions every so often, it’s always a good time to consider your vehicle’s safety measures, and whether your vehicle is properly suited up for the snow and slick driving. If your vehicle isn’t yet ready, don’t worry—Fred Beans is here to help.
Below, we’ve created a list of the best 2019 cars to drive in the snow. With enhanced handling and go-to snow features like AWD, these vehicles can take on the winter streets with ease, keeping you safe and confident.
2019 Subaru Outback
This iconic wagon is perfect for driving in winter weather due to its Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD), which comes standard. This ideally distributes traction for quick responsiveness in all conditions, especially when it’s snowy or icy. It also balances weight between both sides to give you optimal grip and control.
The 2019 Outback also comes standard with X-MODE®, which optimizes the AWD system for maximum traction on slippery surfaces. Simply switch it on, and you’ll be set for the road ahead.
2019 Ford Escape
The 2019 Escape makes snowy driving a breeze with an available Intelligent 4WD (4-wheel drive) system. This continually monitors your traction and road conditions every 16 milliseconds! It then transfers torque from the front wheels to the back as needed, ensuring your handling is as smooth as can be.
The Ford Escape also comes standardly equipped with AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control. These systems work together to help you maintain control on icy surfaces, and can even slow down your vehicle when they sense that you’re going too fast through curves.
2019 Ford Explorer
This Ford SUV also comes with the aforementioned Intelligent 4WD system, which optimizes the powertrain to always give you the correct amount of power for snowy conditions. Additionally, a Terrain Management System™ is available, which gives you even more control during inclement weather.
This vehicle also comes equipped with a Snow mode that provides quicker upshifts, while the engine adjusts its torque to better your traction on surfaces with slick topping.
2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee keeps you in control no matter what lies ahead. With the available Quandra-Trac® Active On-Demand 4×4 system, your vehicle will actively transfer traction between wheels to provide optimal handling on snow-covered streets.
An available Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System can be included as well. This includes a Snow mode that will allow your 4×4 system to work even harder to maintain traction and enhance handling.
2019 Hyundai Santa Fe
This SUV comes with the available Hyundai HTRAC® AWD to give the Santa Fe ideal control and handling in any weather conditions. By controlling power from the engine, torque, and braking between all wheels, it creates impeccable road handling, even when the roads are snowy.
