40 Rugged Winter Vehicles

From Snow-Fighting Car Mods to Electric Eco-Friendly SUVs

— January 9, 2013 — Autos
The cold weather can make you wish you had a more prepared car and this collection of rugged winter vehicles might just have you ready to trade in your smaller sedan. When the cold weather and the snow begins to fall, smaller vehicles on the road begin to slip and slide all over the road.

The fine selections you'll find within this collection aren't just built for slippery roads, but often ready to do a little cold weather off-roading or for gracefully gliding to a cabin hidden in the woods. What's best about this collection is that it doesn't just focus on oversized gas guzzlers as there are a number of capable automobiles that are either completely electric or utilize sophisticated hybrid technology.
