I have a type...or color...  I really like the Tucson but its anemic performance is what drove me to get the Edge ST.

 

I'm curious how the Ford AWD will do this winter.  The Tucson has a center locker and it is tremendous in the snow when the lock is on.

Let us know how it does in the snow,  living in Virginia we get our share of snow but working for a school system we are closed if they even smell snow coming LOL.  So doubt I take mine out in that mess but still good to know.

Finally got our first real Chicago snow Jan 17.  I have Hankook Wintercept snow tires, and I’d rate the whole awd package including the snow tires 4 out of 5 stars.  Snow-dragging from a stoplight appears common here, with a lot of Jeeps busting forward at the green light to show their dominance.  I can keep up with them but not beat them— and that’s good because they have a transfer case and often lsd differentials.  I easily beat a Honda Pilot last night who was pulling away hard but swerving heavily both front and rear—I pulled away sure and straight and well ahead—but I think my tires are a big part of it.  So bottom line, I think the Edge’s Awd is nothing spectacular but is better than a typical AWD because it can get a lot of torque to the rears and does appear to spread the torque evenly, where my Tucson would occasionally kick the rear sideways (though that was when I had the center-locker on so I guess I can’t be surprised about the rears spinning and stepping out).  Also, as always, tires are the most important factor for any vehicle in the winter, snow tires will always trump any advanced awd feature.
