Before we know it, snow and ice will make driving more treacherous. What kind of vehicle is best for winter driving? Needless to say a 4x4 or all wheel drive (AWD) will get around the best, but as with most 4x4’s you will suffer a loss of gas mileage plus the extra cost of the AWD’s. Front wheel drive vehicles get around generally well in the winter elements, so maybe a sedan or mini-van is a good choice. There are very few rear wheel drive (RWD) vehicles produced by the car companies with the latest casualty the Ford Crown Victoria & its sister car the Mercury Grand Marquis. I am maybe showing my age but I remember when most vehicles were RWD and we got around just fine. As the common theme lately, when you are considering a vehicle please take into consideration all your needs.
