The easy answer would be to tell you any Ford vehicle is capable for the job (no exaggeration either, because most Ford models have available All-Wheel or 4-Wheel Drive available). Nevertheless, each one handles the winter in its own unique ways and uniquely accommodate any driving need for the season. Take a look at some of our top picks of Ford models you should drive during the Edmonton winters.
We couldn’t have started this list with any other vehicle. Ford’s landmark pickup truck is one of the best vehicles you can drive in the winter because of its powerful performance and utility, no matter what time of year it is. The F-150 is perfect for drivers who constantly work all-year round and need a truck that handles every season.
The Escape is the perfect compact crossover for when you’re travelling with your family on the regular. With its three-engine lineup, including the 2.0L EcoBoost® Engine with up to 245 horsepower, trudging through the snow is far from a problem. Plus, the Escape still has an impressive towing capacity of 3,500 lbs, just in case you need even more proof that this SUV has some power.
For the ultimate road trip to Jasper during peak skiing season, the Ford Expedition is the perfect full-sized SUV for the job. This truck-based SUV has seating for up to seven people (eight if you opt for the MAX model) and you have the option to fold the seats down for nearly 3,000-litres worth of cargo space!
