The Best Cars to Drive During Canadian Winters

January 12,2021

If there’s one thing that Canada is infamous for, it’s the brutal winters. It’s important to know that your vehicle is working at its most optimum level to ensure your safety on the road, whether it’s covered in rain, snow, ice, or all of the above. Our team of professionals here at Journey Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram is happy to present this collection of the most reliable cars, trucks, and SUVs to put your mind at ease on the wintery roads. 
Jeep Wrangler 
Our first contender is a pretty obvious one. The Jeep Wrangler has always been crafted to maneuver easily on rough terrain, and that doesn’t stop when it comes to snow and other inclement weather. The Wrangler has nearly 10” of ground clearance and offers amazingly responsive 4-wheel drive that can put any winter storm to shame. 
You have some additional options when it comes to a model like this as well. You could opt-in for additional safety features, like forward collision warning and blind-spot monitoring, or you could also keep with the theme of defeating the winter cold and get the heated seats and steering wheel.
Ram 1500 Limited Truck Crew Cab
This entry on the list is one lean, mean, weather-defying machine. Offering a more-than-responsive 4×4 drive train and over 300 horsepower, there’s nothing stopping this monster, not even harsh winter weather! Ram revitalized the model after 2019 (which still surpassed a lot of its competitors) and added some new features to top the previous versions.
This model comes with a 3.6L V6 engine that is assisted by a 48-volt hybrid system, created by Ram, called eTorque. It can offer 269 pound-feet of torque. 
With that in mind, the Ram 1500 still includes amazing fuel economy. This beast only uses 19 mpg in the city, 24 mpg on the highway, and 21 mpg altogether when utilizing the 4WD. This model also includes ABS and driveline traction control, as well as heated mirrors to ensure your visibility isn’t obstructed by the weather. 
We have brand-new 1500 models in stock at Journey Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Dodge Jeep Ram, so come down today to go for a test drive and fall in love with this stellar truck! 

Dodge Charger
This one threw us for a loop! But the Dodge Charger (especially the 2020 model) definitely has some tricks up its sleeve that you wouldn’t expect. For one thing, it’s one of the only muscle car models to offer a smooth AWD experience. Thankfully, this system can either be left on permanently or just used as needed, thanks to an active transfer case that hooks the front wheels into the power flow when needed. 
Its 3.6L V6 engine doesn’t leave you wanting more due to its amazing ability and response. With 300 HP and 262 pound-feet of torque, rest assured you won’t have to worry about having enough power to get yourself out of sticky situations in the snow and ice. 
Dodge Durango 
The Durango has been on many drivers’ radars for a long time and has established itself as one of everybody’s favourite SUVs. The versatility of this model is unprecedented, and that definitely includes navigating rough and unrelenting Canadian winters. 
The Durango AWD system’s response is unmatched, and the Driver Assist safety features that come standard in the 2020 model provide advanced traction control that can tread over snow and ice with no hiccups. Stop by Journey Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Dodge Jeep Ram today and ask one of our professional staff if the Durango sounds like the right model for you (hint: it is)! 
Jeep Grand Cherokee 
When it comes to vehicles that do all the work for you on any terrain, Jeep is constantly outdoing themselves. The 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee leaves nothing to be desired, mastering all different levels of ground and climate. There are many different versions you can get, but even the most basic model of this option would suffice for all your terrain-covering needs. 
Some options for the Grand Cherokee even have the option to add the superior Quadra-Trac 4WD system that removes a lot of the responsibility from the driver and works flawlessly in the background when enabled. Grand Cherokee models have been around for quite a while, and for good reason. They’re reliable and easy to use, and what else can you ask for when having to navigate through our winters here in Coquitlam?
