I have a similar driveway issue except it is even longer. When I bought my Lincoln SUV I was sure my 4WD wasn't working properly because the snow\ice performance was downright scary. Someone suggested I change the factory all-weather tires for proper winter tires (Not studded). The difference was night and day. It is as much about tires as it is 4WD, especially when you consider the rubbish all-purpose OEM tires most new cars come with- fine for dry and a little rain but borderline unsafe in extreme weather.Another level over this thought, I am in New England and found that I can not get up my driveway in snow if I do not have AWD or aggressive snow tires on the vehicle.
I have a hill, curve and 700+ feet to go which really sucks to walk up & clear before bringing vehicle up.
I have seen other car companies provide high mileage vehicles with lower tread tires for fuel economy. I also had a 1014 Fusion Titanium Hybrid that would not make it up with factory tires.
Does anyone that has seen the Mach e know if the factory supplied tires that are more "fuel effecient" or are they normal all season?
The thread started with "besides the obvious", but I really like the idea of having a "spare" motor. What happens in an ICE car when your engine fails? Call a tow truck. Two motors - no problem. How much more would an ICE vehicle cost if it had two motors? (and not only would you not have a frunk, you wouldn't have a trunk either)
