The impending winter weather can send chills down any driver’s spine because of the effect that Jack Frost has on the roads. Of course, if you’re behind the wheel of a powerful Jeep SUV, the tougher the roads are, the better!

The Jeep Compass offers a sleek style and a notable performance that can certainly help you pave a way home. The vehicle comes standard with a 2.4L Tigershark® MultiAir® 2 4-cylinder engine that can boast 180 horsepower. It also offers the Selec-Terrain® 4×4 system, which lets you manually select the level of traction you’re looking for based on the road conditions. The Compass also offers available heated front seats to help add more comfort to your winter excursions.
The new Cherokee offers three distinct engine options for you to choose from. There’s the 2.4L Tigershark®, the 3.2L Pentastar® V6 with 4,500 pounds of towing capacity, or the energetic 2.0L Turbo, which generates an impressive 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. It even includes a versatile 9-speed automatic transmission.
The Jeep Active Drive® 4×4 systems come available with the Cherokee. These systems let you easily select between automatic 4×4, Snow, Sport, Sand/Mud, and even Rock so you can tackle whatever lies ahead.
If you’re the type of driver that wants to create your own adventure of tackling the snow on and off of the roads, the Jeep Wrangler can certainly accommodate. It offers a plethora of engines, including the 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 engine, which can boast up to 260 horsepower and 442 lb-ft of torque.
As far as 4×4 systems go, the Wrangler is king. It offers three notable 4×4 systems. The Selec-Trac® will automatically activate the system when it senses it’s needed. The Command-Trac® puts you in control with determining the level of grip you need. The Rock-Trac® system can actually climb rocky terrain, so it can certainly handle snow.
Jeep Grand Cherokee
The Jeep Grand Cherokee is the perfect combination of style, sophistication, and power. It offers quite an array of engine options that happen to be the most powerful offered by Jeep. It starts out with the 3.6L Pentastar® V6 but adds the 360 horsepower-capable 5.7L HEMI® V8, the 475 horsepower- generating 6.4L SRT® V8, or even the Supercharged 6.2L V8 engine that boasts 707 horsepower!
