I love trucks, I keep trying to justify getting one, but I just can't get around the mpg thing. I appreciate you guys trying to talk me into it.
You guys pay for your own gas?!?
Sure FWD is better than RWD in the snow (assuming all other things are equal), but 4WD/AWD is better yet again.
I agree that two identical cars, using the same tires, regardless of drivetrain, will take the same distance to stop unless one is lighter.
But there are so many variables when comparing cars you can't simply say that a light civic with snow tires is better than X 4WD car with snow tires, or Y Truck with snow tires.
BTW people, the solution is to get a job where your vehicle and fuel are included.
