Which is the best used SUV for winter?

 

As a car dealership in Goshen, Indiana, USA-1 knows from winter weather. Choosing the right used SUV for sale to tackle snow and ice is essential for safe driving in the cold months. If you're in the market for your next used SUV, it's important to know what to look for in a winter-friendly vehicle. Let's explore the best Goshen used cars for driving in harsh winter conditions!

 

What vehicle is best for snow and ice?

 

  • Slick, slippery roads demand capable cars. But what makes a car good in the snow? To begin, the bigger and heavier, the better. Since used SUVs for sale near you tend to be larger and weigh more than sedans, SUVs are preferable for winter driving. 

  • The all-season road tires that most used SUVs near you come factory-equipped with won't cut it. You'll want to install studless snow tires, specially designed for winter conditions. Wider treads and special rubber that remains flexible in freezing temperatures will help your used SUV for sale grip the road.

  • Many models at our car lot near you are equipped with advanced driver assist features that are helpful in inclement weather. Look for features like antilock brakes, traction control, and stability control.

 

Is AWD or FWD better in snow?

 

You'll find both AWD and FWD models at our car dealership in Goshen, Indiana. So which drivetrain performs the best on icy, snowy winter roads? Let's review the difference between FWD and AWD, and what that means for winter driving.

 

  • AWD distributes power automatically to all four wheels of the used SUV for sale. When one wheel begins to lose traction, the other three wheels can compensate with additional power to keep your car on the right track. Some models at our car dealership in Goshen, Indiana are full-time AWD, where the AWD transmission system runs continuously. Other AWD systems only engage in specific driving situations. The advantage of AWD is that the driver doesn't need to take action to activate the AWD system. 

 

  • FWD systems are typically used for off-roading, and like AWD, power can be transferred to the front or back wheels of the used SUV near you. Goshen used cars with FWD use two differentials and a transfer case to deliver power. You can find FWD systems that are part-time, full-time, manual shift, on-the-fly, and fully automatic at our car lot near you. 

 

How do you get better traction in the snow?

 

No matter which used SUV near you that you choose, you can always improve your traction on icy roads. Here's how to boost your traction in winter driving conditions, whatever used SUV for sale you select!

 

  • If your used SUV for sale near you has rear-wheel drive, add weight to the back of the vehicle to gain better traction.

  • Drive in tracks cleared by other vehicles on the road. 

  • Upgrade from factory tires to snow tires.

  • Consider keeping snow tire chains in your trunk in case of deep snow.
