Jaguar F-Pace Tackles A Winter Blizzard With Class

By -

Jaguar’s F-Pace offers all-wheel drive traction in the best looking SUV on sale today. Does the British cat have what it takes to handle a Colorado blizzard?

The weather has started to turn and Winter is showing up. The experience of driving on ice and snow can definitely be a butt-puckering moment, especially without proper tires. A bit too much throttle and you can end up flipped over in a ravine doing snow angels, and not the good kind either. It is no joke to check a cars roof in snow country to see if it has gone upside down in the snow, even more so with truck and SUV’s.

The new crossover Jaguar F-Pace and the owner decided to celebrate the first snow of the season in Colorado. Nathan Alden from The Fast Lane Car channel shows us a drive in all-season tires on the Jaguar F-Pace in a tremendous amount of snow. There was a little slipping but overall not too bad. The F pace does have an all-wheel drive system so the added traction helps. The traction control system uses technology from Jaguar’s sister company Land Rover, who knows a bit about off-roading. The system uses the brakes to control the traction and wheel slippage. It is pretty advanced for a grocery-getter in a luxury suit.

Nathan mentions the special heat coils in the windshield really assist with visibility if you know how to look through them. As we all now more visibility is always a plus to driving in a blizard. So, one thing is for sure, traction or not, those heated seats and steering wheel will keep you toasty and cheerful, all the way to your in-laws for the holidays. Let us know in comments below, what have been your experiences driving in the snow?
