Hello to everyone, new to the forum and new to a sport owner. Well my wife’s sport anyways. I just have a quick question. Has anyone been on winter roads? Not dirt roads, but highway roads. We just drove through some bad winter conditions from Wyoming to polson Montana. First of all the wind seems to blow this little suv all over which is not good on slick roads. Also it seems like the vehicle wants to float and walk side to side. And packed snow it wants to stay in grooves which seems to just go back and forth and afraid it will break free one of these times. I’m not a fast driver so I’m just curious if anyone else has this issue and what tires do you have . I got a bfg all terrain tire.

I recently posted a video on one of the Bronco Sport pages focused on winter driving.
Some drivers seem to have a bit of confusion with turbo setups, if you put your foot to the floor you're going to feel it. If you drive gently and roll into it, you'll have RIDICULOUS traction. Especially in their "Slippery" mode.
The BS is primarily front wheel drive, even our badlands, and when put in Slippery it switches to what seems to be a 60/40 or 60% FWD 40% RWD for a very controlled feel.
Obviously, tires can play a big roll, we are still on all terrains which we've overlanded with from the showroom. So add snow tires and it would be a BEAST.

When we posted our video we had tons of responses with people agreeing, they held great, with the only consideration is "Lane Assist" which adds a bit of pressure to bring you back center on the lane. With lighter snow it could read the other vehicles tracks as the road lines, so you may have to shut it off.
