How Do Jeep Brand SUVs Handle in the Snow?

Jeep brand SUVs have been known for their tremendous ability to take you nearly anywhere for decades now thanks to engineering and innovation of the different Jeep 4x4 systems. Every Jeep brand model comes with its own unique 4x4 system to help you traverse snow and ice with ease, but which Jeep brand model is the best fit for you? To help you find out, we're going to highlight some of the different 4x4 systems that you can find on popular new models.

Grand Cherokee

  • Quadra Drive II system with Rear Electronic Limited Slip Differential: most advanced 4x4 system for all-weather capability thanks to being able to transfer 100 percent of available torque to one wheel if needed.
  • Quadra-Trac I system: Always engaged for all-weather capability at all times.
  • Quadra-Trac II system: Features a two-speed low transfer case and sensors to determine tire slip and take corrective action for all weather performance when conditions are at their worst.


  • Active Drive system: For 4x4 capability without sacrificing fuel economy. Seamlessly switches between two and four-wheel drive when you need it to so you don't burn extra energy when it's not needed.
  • Active Drive Low system: For more off road focused travel, though still tremendously effective in the snow.


  • Active Drive I system: automatically engages 4x4 system when conditions call for it.
  • Active Drive II: Includes all the features of Active Drive I, plus low range and neutral modes.

Selec-Terrain Traction Management System

Beyond 4x4 systems, many new Jeep brand SUVs also come with a Selec-Terrain traction management system that allows you to switch between drive modes, including a snow mode, for optimized performance on whatever stands in between you and your destination.
