With winter slowly creeping in once again, the same old question has once again begun to surface, do I need all wheel drive to survive the winter? Gary’s is here to figure out if driving two extra wheels is worth it for the winter. We’ll also look at the differences between all wheel drive and 4 wheel drive and which one can perform the best in the snow and ice.

Canadian winters are some of the most adverse conditions your vehicle can face.
