Owning a Jeep Wrangler allows drivers to enjoy numerous benefits during any season of the year. During the cold, bitter chill of winter, however, the rugged capabilities of the Jeep Wrangler become even more useful—whether you’re hitting snow-covered trails or simply taking on an icy morning commute. If you’re looking for the perfect cold-weather vehicle, consider these key advantages of driving a jeep wrangler during the winter.
Four-Wheel Drive Capabilities
Let’s start with the obvious. One of the many reasons why Jeep Wranglers are an exceptional vehicle to drive during the winter is their impressive four-wheel drive capabilities. By providing power from the drivetrain to all four wheels, your vehicle will have more traction. When driving on icy or snow-covered surfaces, you’ll be happy to have the four-wheel drive capabilities of the Jeep Wrangler to prevent you from slipping and sliding all over the place.
Crawl Gears for Especially Slippery Terrain
Another advantage of driving a jeep wrangler during the winter is the crawl gear setting. The crawl gear comes standard on all Jeep Wranglers and is essentially a low-gear that allows drivers to move at a low, consistent speed. This setting proves highly useful when driving over especially slippery or soft terrain—such as snow or ice—as accelerating too fast can cause your wheels to spin or dig into the ground.
High Ground Clearance
Jeep Wranglers also provide the benefit of having a high ground clearance. Modern Jeep Wranglers come stock with at least 8.3 inches of ground clearance. For even more clearance, you can choose to have your Jeep lifted. When driving on trails that have a thick layer of snow on them, such ground clearance proves highly useful.
Exceptional Heating System
In addition to practical benefits, Jeep Wranglers also offer enhanced comfort during the colder months of the year. Jeep Wranglers are known for their exceptional heating systems that quickly warm up the cab to keep drivers and passengers nice and toasty. To stay extra warm, consider switching from a soft top to a hardtop during the winter for superior insulation.
