Discover the winter tires for large SUVs and light trucks that stand out the most.
Of course, with the great craze for pickup trucks of all sizes, there are more novelties to discuss when it comes to their winter tires. What’s more, automakers are increasingly offering “tougher” versions of their pickups and SUVs of all sizes, off-road versions that want to entice drivers off the highways and into to the most demanding trails in search of adventure.
These types of pickup trucks – the Ford F-150 Raptor, Chevrolet Silverado ZR-2, Ram T-Rex and others – are now available to everyone. Unfortunately, these mechanical beauties were first created for the inhabitants of the American Southwest where off-road excursions are commonplace (if we ride snowmobiles back home, it’s adventures in the desert…).
What’s more, this trend has made its way into the smaller pickup segments, as evidenced by the craze for excursion 4 X 4s like the Ford Bronco and Jeep Gladiator. And even the largest SUVs such as the Ford Expedition and Chevrolet Tahoe are now available in off-road versions!
