If you enjoy staying indoors with a warm drink…
Look, winter isn’t for everyone. The harsh elements make staying inside all the more cozier. You love lighting a fire, pouring hot tea, and sitting down on the couch with a blanket. Whether you like reading a book or starting a new TV series, you enjoy the winter months because they offer you time to sit back and relax.
If you do need to leave the house, finding a vehicle that is cozy, comfortable, and stylish is important. Other features, notably heated seats, are also extremely important to keep you warm and toasty. For these reasons, we’ve selected the 2013 Buick Encore as the vehicle for you! Complete with leather seats, heated seats, and a stylish design, the Encore is sure to take the comforts of home and put them into your ride.
If you love taking the family sledding…
What can be more fun than waking up on a Saturday morning with a fresh blanket of snow? Winter wouldn’t be complete without the annual family sledding trip to your local park. Watch the magic unfold as the kiddos race down the hillside and warm up with a thermos of hot chocolate. These are the memories you and your family will cherish for a lifetime.
To make your family trip easier, we’ve selected the Dodge Grand Caravan for your annual winter excursion. The Grand Caravan has enough room for all your sleds, snow pants, and of course, your kids with seven seats and convenient Stow ‘n Go seating. If safety is your concern, the 2013 Dodge Grand Caravan (pictured below) was named a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and received the top rating of “Good” in four IIHS crash tests.
If you crave the adrenaline rush of the slopes…
For some midwesterners, nothing is more exciting than hitting the slopes in the winter. Northern Michigan alone is home to many top-notch ski resorts, so traveling there safely is important. Additionally, hauling all of your ski equipment requires a spacious SUV. If you’re looking to hit the slopes this season, you need an SUV will help ensure a safe trip and provide you with the extra room you need.
For these reasons, we’ve selected the Jeep Cherokee Sport (2015 model pictured below) for your next ski trip this winter. We came to this conclusion due to the Cherokee’s comfortable ride, nice cabin area, and its amazing off-roading abilities, which will be perfect for those rural back roads in the wintertime. It also has plenty of room to store all of your ski equipment. The Cherokee comfortably seats five and gets 19-22 mpg in the city and 25-31 mpg on the highway with its 184-271 horsepower engine.
If you anticipate venturing out on the ice for a prized catch…
For outdoor enthusiasts, ice fishing is a true test. Despite the bitter cold conditions, anglers seek out a prized catch each year on the ice with friends, family, or just in the solitude of nature. With the Farmer’s Almanac predicting a brutally cold winter this year, expect great ice fishing conditions in the months ahead. If you’re in the market for a quality vehicle to take on your next ice fishing excursion, you may want to consider a truck to haul all of your equipment and provide a place to stay to warm if you need a break from the ice.
That’s why we’ve selected the GMC Sierra 1500 Work Truck (2011 model pictured below). The 2011 GMC Sierra 1500 was rated #1 in the US News category for “2011 Full Size Pickup Trucks.” Critics love its powerful engine, comfortable seats, and maneuverability. This truck has more than enough room for your essentials such as your rod, line, ice auger, clothes, and even extras such at a tent or mini grill. Plus, the high ground clearance will make it easier to get over snowy terrain.
