How Well Does the Ford F-150 Deal with Winter Driving?

Not having traction is the biggest problem that snowy, icy weather brings, and, especially in trucks with little weight in the back, it can lead to fishtailing or spinning out when trying to accelerate. You can combat this by throwing some sandbags into the bed of your truck, or you can just go with a four-wheel drive Ford F-150, which will send power to all the wheels so that you aren't just relying on two of them.

Truck shoppers will have a variety of engines to choose with the Ford F-150, but they all have the necessary horsepower and torque to keep you from feeling helpless and help with plowing snow. This truck also has a Terrain Management System with unique modes for slippery and deep snow conditions. Plus, drivers and passengers will find that heating for the seats, steering wheel, and exterior mirrors keeps away cold from the cabin and ice from the mirrors!
