The jeep is a runner-up, I rented one in PR lately and it was a sweet ride and up to the task in the back country.
No snow in Seattle... boy I miss those drizzly winters. Warm enough for a sweater only with few exceptions and you don't need to own a shovel.
I see the same thing with 4wd / Awd in the snow... it helps you go but it don't help you STOP!
