The 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a great option for driving in snowy conditions. This SUV is available with either rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. Four-wheel drive is the best option for those who have to drive on ice and snow. Inside the car, you’ll stay comfortable with heated seats and a heated steering wheel. The variable intermittent wipers and rear window defogger and wiper provides easy visibility no matter how bad the weather. As an added benefit, this SUV gets 17 miles per gallon city and 24 miles per gallon highway.

Jeep Renegade

If you’re looking for an SUV that is perfect for outdoor activities in the warm months and can still stand up to the snow, consider the Jeep Renegade. This SUV offers either four-wheel drive or front-wheel drive, depending on the model you choose. The five-passenger vehicle is great for long road trips or getting to and from work safely, with an estimated 21 miles per gallon city and 29 miles per gallon highway. The external temperature display helps keep you up to date on how cold it is outside and the all-terrain tires keeps you on the road.

Dodge Durango

Another SUV option for winter conditions is the Dodge Durango. This SUV is also available in rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. With multi-level heating on the driver seat as an option, you can select exactly how warm you stay while inside the car. There is also a rear heating unit to ensure that everyone in the SUV stays comfortable. The all-season tires that come with the SUV keep you on the road even when it snows, but you may want to consider getting snow tires for the season.

Chrysler Aspen

If you’re looking for a used vehicle, consider the Chrysler Aspen. This SUV is no longer in production—it was built from 2007–2009. However, that doesn’t keep it from being one of the best on the road when it comes to winter conditions. As with the other SUVs on the list, you can choose between rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive. The rear heating unit keeps everyone comfortable, no matter how cold it is outside, and the external temperature display shows you exactly how cold that is. The intermittent wipers on both front and back help keep the windows clear.

When you need to get around in the snowy weather, you need to have the right vehicle. Choosing a winter-ready SUV helps you to stay safe on the road, no matter how much snow and ice you have to deal with.
