Have ordered 2015 Cherokee Limited - loaded. Since this is my first Jeep I am unfamiliar with the "drive settings"....auto, snow, etc. I live in the NE and occasionally get caught in a freezing rain/ice situation. Have been running Michelin Xice tires on my current vehicle but aside from the obvious I was curious as to whether any one setting veteran Jeep owners might consider preferable in a similar situation.
id say run auto until it cant negotiate the snow/ice properly... then switch down to snow , when that does not work.. low range and lock em in if ya have lockers.. Also.. in extreme conditions turn off the traction control while in auto or high.,, ive seen the TCS kick in at the wrong times and basically stop all forward progression. by default, tcs is off in 4 low..
and a good set of chains for your tires, just to be safe and not sorry in EXTREME ice..
