up in canada. my Mav does great in slippery with the AWD (prob because of the independent front and rear suspension with wildpeak AT's). Does great changing unplowed lanes on the highway doing 40-50MPH with out loosing traction. You do need to be very careful if the front end does looses traction (playing around in the side streets, it will cause significant understeer when the front end breaks loose (I am coming from a wrangler and used to slide the back end). Keep the rev's low and should be fine.

First snow day with the mav. Handled it very well. Vancouver BC Canada doesn't get a lot of snow so it was nice to go for a spin in some fresh stuff. TC and ALB seam good for a budget ride.

Texan here...I don't do snow much. Last year when we had snow my FWD focus was just fine. I just allowed plenty of room to brake. 👍

That said, I imagine the Mavericks light weight, compared to other trucks, is an advantage.

P.S. all you who make fun of southerners for shutting down when there's winter weather....#1. most of the time, we don't get snow, we get SLEET and ICE. No one is a good driver in ice. Especially when it's randomly placed. #2. We don't have salt/sand trucks. Snowed roads stay snowed and without grit to aide in traction until it melts.

Sincerely,
All Southern Drivers
I'm from Colorado and learned to drive in the snow. That said my only major accident to date (knock on wood) was in a Ford Ranger in snow. I was stationed at Ft. Hood in the early 90's when we had a snowstorm blow through. Literally dropped like 3 inches of snow. But that covered an inch of ice. Was like being on skates trying to drive. Bell county had sold all their snow removal equipment a couple of years earlier because of how rarely it was used and the cost to keep it up. Closed everything down for like 3 days until mother nature took care of it.
