without snowies (have them ordered) put on about 200kms in what seemed like blizzard conditions
not bad at all.
was pretty cautious more worried about some one rear ending me
or side swiping
best part is the remote start and heated windshield gadamn

can't wait for snowies let er snow...

Good to know it handles well in snow conditions since I drive to the ski resorts at least a few times each winter but otherwise it doesn't snow where I am. I don't know what "snowies" are (googled and apparently it's a shaved ice place and doubt that's what you're talking about).

Thanks, sure makes more sense than you ordering and waiting weeks for shaved ice :) I've never had snow tires. My 2017 Escape 4WD was a champ in some heavy snow in Mammoth so hopefully the heavier 2019 PP AWD Elite will be fine.

If you ran snow tires once you would be sold it is a huge difference.
Also not using the all seasons for almost 6 months a year so they
don't need to be replaced as much.
getting going usually isnt an issue with 4x4 or awd
in the snow and ice its the stopping thing,
nothing like hitting the brakes and it feels like your speeding up.

I also drive a lot for work and snowies often
are the difference between
getting home or finding a hotel for the night.

I can confirm. I live in the PA area right on the snow belt.Its a beast! Its even superior to my previous Audi Quattro system in the snow!

Just remember Traction Control off to get started and once you get moving turn it back on. Safe travels everyone!
