Looking for feedback on driving the Trackhawk in the snow/ice?

Looking for any input/sharing of experience of driving the Trackhawk in the snow/ice?

How effective do you feel the traction setting is, and generally - what are your experiences with it in the winter weather?

Thanks!

The snow mode does a fantastic job of taming the power. With a gentle foot and narrower winter tires, I don’t think it is much behind driving my previous Summit model with similar tires. The low clearance was too much for snow plowing against the little plastic wind dams near the front of the front tires and mine broke.

It's good. Get snow tires for the best results

Tires determine how good it will be. While the All seasons are decent in the snow when new, they become noticeably less effective with 10-15k miles on them.

I run blizzaks and while it was a relatively mild winter here last year, I can confidently say the only thing that may limit this truck is ground clearance in the really deep stuff.

Thank you all for the quick replies. Does anyone feel the throttle can be too "touchy" in the snow/ice, or does the snow setting tame the throttle response enough?

Thank you again,

Eco mode will tame the throttle response

It's not touchy at all to me. Feels just like a regular grand Cherokee until you step on it.
