My '16 Lattitude did just fine in that snow, and it's not a Trailhawk.

My Wife's 4x4 Latitude does great in the snow. I like turning off all the traction control to at least make it a fun challenge! I drive a '97 Cherokee that might be better at plowing through snow, but as far as control, the Renny kills it. I can't get the Renny to really lose control but can make the Cherokee literally do circles. My one complaint about the Renegade is the darn parking brake. Not nearly as fun as pulling that handle on the '97 and fishtailing around a curve?

Got to play with my Renegade Sport 4x4 1.4L Manual in the snow today with a storm here in MA. City is waiting for the snow to stop before they plow/treat. Good 4 inches of stuff on the streets. The Jeep felt like it was glued to the road. Previous vehicle was a 2009 Ford Escape v6. Took the Renegade to hills I knew the Escape would have had problems with and the Renegade had no issues. Played with it in all the various modes (sand mode is fun on the snow!) and it is a blast.

I like the way snow mode changes the feel of the steering, slows it down and seems heavier. We have had a good amount of snow today and the Renegade handled it great. Some people couldn't get up our driveway today but when I went out the Renegade accelerated on it's way up the hill, no slippage at all. Auto mode with 4 wheel lock goes pretty good too. Going to the beach tomorrow to check out the house and find some dirt roads that probably won't be plowed, looking forward to it.

Is your Escape only FWD?

My mother in law has a 2002 FWD Escape in upstate NY without proper snow tires (its got M+S tri-peak ATV tires on it) and while not proper winter shoes, they are predictable and its easy to tell when the rear end will kick out but nothing it can't handle in up to ~1' of powder or iced over roads.

...no Renegade for me

lol nice atv !!!


the jeep handles realllly good in the snow - im with every1 else though - better tires will make it even more fun ..

i dont like the stock tires mine came with and even though they are good/new no wear at all - im changing them maybe tomoro or tuesday - im want the ko2's so lets hope the shop has them in stock !

i like the look of them and the ratings are pretty damn good i hear !

Our Renegade did great with about 11"of snow, even with stock tires(Kumho's). We have the 1.4T 4x4. We went on an hour long trip in a snowstorm, no issues.
