Such generally stated, I disagree. Maybe if you said "in my country/state", ok, but not in geberal. In my country, for example, we have no ice and snow yet, unfortunately and it's still kind of cold but not as cold as it's supposed to in Winter. Climate change is a b*tch. I miss lomg snowy winters.
Oh man i live near atlanta where they literally make a SNL sketch about us the one time our roads got entirely shut down from an inch of snow cause of the piss poor planning on everyone's part. now that was a moment
Honestly, how do you think a large swath of the population in northern countries like say Canada gets around for a third of the year ?
I'm not familiar with driving in heavy snow conditions. Which vehicles are adequate?
4x4, trucks, 4WD
Rear wheel drive trucks?
Only with extra weight in the back, like sandbags.
Anything with proper winter tires.
People overlook that a set of proper tires will always outperform even a 4wd with all seasons every time on snow and ice
It depends on conditions and how steep the roads are. Where I live in the mountains 4wd/AWD will get you through 90 percent of winter conditions. Studded snow tires and increased ground clearance will get you through days when roads are slick or the snow is deep. Winter conditions vary a lot. Light snow when it's really cold can be drivable in most vehicles with all weather tires. Slush, black ice and deep snow require a more capable vehicle.
Define "not designed for ice and snow"
Do you mean AWD? Being equipped with winter tires? Having a driver who knows what they are doing?
You can totally drive safe in a sedan during winter with proper preparation. The most pospular car in eastern europe is Vw passat...
You don't even need a car designed for snow. Get proper tires and a standard sedan is fine.
Yes- decent snow tires on any car will make it suitable for travel in most snow storms. This does not apply to large depths of snow or mountain roads as for those a vehicle often needs 4WD AND chains to reliably get through.
I don't think you need special cars like 4WD trucks, just good snow tires. I just drove almost 2 hours on snowy VT roads in my Toyota Corolla and was fine because I have good tires.
