You don’t always need an AWD car or a 4×4 truck, but isn’t it nice to know that you can do this if you have it? Going through a foot of fresh snow or simply doing donuts in an empty field. Sometimes it’s nice to let loose and play in the snow. This is exactly what TFLcar and TFLtruck did with these latest cars and trucks.
The 2015 Audi Allroad will be stopping sales in the United States soon (in many ways thanks to the success of the Audi Q5). But as its name suggests, it’s not afraid of going through a foot of fresh snow. The added ride height and the Quattro all-wheel-drive system work together for great capability and confidence in tough or playful situations.
Of course, a pickup truck like the 2015 GMC Canyon is great for this as well. GM’s latest midsize pickup has a sophisticated AWD/4×4 system that you can shift on the fly. You can also throw it into good-old 2WD mode when the road is easy or you want to do some good donuts.
Even the Infiniti QX60 is not afraid to get loose once in a while. Just hold the traction control button to turn it off (as with all new vehicles) and have a good time! Remember, always stay safe and be mindful of others. A great place to have fun is a controlled environment, such as the IMI Motorsports park where TFL shot most of this video.
