If you’re located anywhere in the United States that receives heavy snow and ice during the winter season, then you know the importance of driving a vehicle equipped to handle the unpredictable weather. Many newer vehicle models are stocked with high-tech safety and convenience features that help to fight harsh outside conditions during the winter season, and we’ve highlighted some interesting features you may want when the cold weather comes.
If you’re on the hunt for a new vehicle, then it might be time to consider one that’s winter-ready before the year is over. According to the farmer’s almanac, the 2022-2023 winter weather forecast is predicting record-breaking below-zero temperatures as well as storms bringing a mix of rain and heavy snow. During this time, features like remote start, heated seats and steering wheel, drive modes for snow, night vision camera systems, and all-wheel drive (AWD) will come in handy while you navigate the snowy roads and frigid air.
These five 2022 vehicles have all been built to help give you peace of mind and confidence while traversing the roads in an array of driving conditions, and any would make a great companion this season.
2022 Nissan Altima AWD
The 2022 Nissan Altima is a mid-size sedan that combines performance and efficiency while being stocked with a suite of forward-thinking safety and convenience features. On the outside, you can use the available heated outside mirrors to help melt away ice as well as LED lighting including fog lamps, designed to help illuminate dark roads in various weather conditions. On the inside, you can warm up quickly with available features like heated front seats and steering wheel. The 2022 Altima also offers available Nissan Safety Shield® 360, which includes helpful features like automatic emergency braking, blind spot warning, and high beam assist.
If you’re looking for extra assistance on those icy winter roads, you’ll appreciate the available intelligent AWD, which continuously monitors road conditions and adjusts traction as needed to help maintain control on the road. Additionally, the available remote engine start system with intelligent climate control starts your Altima and automatically begins warming the cabin to your ideal temperature.
2022 Ford Bronco Sport
If you love to explore the great outdoors all year round, the 2022 Ford Bronco Sport provides a wide range of available features that allow you to do just that. Like the Altima, the Bronco Sport offers available premium LED exterior lighting and fog lamps; heated exterior mirrors, seats, and steering wheel; and remote start — but the superior advantages of the Bronco Sport lie in its capability to navigate rugged terrain and harsh weather conditions. This rugged SUV offers a Terrain Management System™ with G.O.A.T. Modes™ (Goes Over Any Type of Terrain) that helps you stay in control over a variety of road conditions, and Ford Co-Pilot360™ technology provides available forward-thinking safety features like automatic high beams, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and BLIS® (blind spot information system) with cross-traffic alert.
2022 Chevy Tahoe
Built for the busy lifestyle, the 2022 Chevy Tahoe has everything you need to tackle the coming winter season while transporting the whole family.

Additionally, the Tahoe comes with standard remote start, so you can easily warm your engine and the cabin during the intense below-zero temperatures.
When it comes to capability, the 2022 Tahoe is built to perform all year round. Giving you the option to choose between two-wheel (2WD) and four-wheel drive (4WD), you also gain access to the StabiliTrak electronic stability control system that helps automatically enhance traction control by adjusting the brakes and torque. It also detects your intended driving path and activates when it senses the vehicle is going in a different direction. The Tahoe also offers standard Chevy Safety Assist across all trims, which includes features like IntelliBeam® automatic high beams, automatic emergency braking, forward collision alert, and a lane keeping system.
2022 Toyota Camry AWD

Other available safety features include blind spot monitoring, a bird’s eye view camera with perimeter scan, and Safety Connect®, which gives you one-touch access to the 24/7 Toyota response center in the event of an emergency. Once contacted, a representative will request dispatch from emergency services directly to the vehicle’s location.
