Haven't had any trips up north with fresh white falling. In general, how do these vehicles navigate the bad weather? Pretty good? Bad? thx

I have a stock 2010 Escalade Premium AWD and the thing charges up mountain passes. Even on straight ice the traction control systems keep the vehicle pointed straight. I use to have a VW R32, which had a very sophisticated AWD system.... but this Escalade takes the cake. I have total confidence in this vehicle in the snow/ice.

I was impressed more than once this past winter with and without my snowmobile trailer on . Once in a while you have to give extra throttle to make sharper turns in deep snow , counter intuitive I know but it works.

It's all about your tires if you drive in deep snow like we do, I will try to dig some pics out, no pun intended, of my trucks in many feet of snow
