The time of year has come for snow to bombard the northern portion of the United States, and considering that 41 percent of all weather-related crashes in this country are due to conditions involving snow, ice, sleet, and slush, it’s a worthwhile time to remind Land Rover Peabody customers how to be as safe as possible out on the open road. The good news is that several of the vehicles we sell come with either four-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, either of which is an improvement in poor weather conditions compared to two-wheel drive vehicles.

In terms of handling different sorts of terrains, four-wheel drive is typically the best option, and that feature is not available in many Land Rover SUVs. This drivetrain splits up the power from the drivetrain and sends it equally to all four wheels, giving drivers maximum control over their vehicles.

All-wheel drive is similar, but slightly different, as it splits power to the front and rear axles rather than each individual wheel. The Land Rover Discovery Sport, for example, offers this type of drivetrain, which also is great in snow and ice.

While four-wheel drive is better for off-road driving, both options are excellent for those Range Rover drivers looking to stay as safe as possible during inclement weather. If you would like to get a closer look at either of these vehicles, come pay us a visit here at Land Rover Peabody any time and we will be happy to show you exactly how safe these models are. When it comes to winter, all-wheel drive and four-wheel drive vehicles absolutely are the way to go.
