Does it matter which trim of Ford Mustang I get for winter driving?

Asked by Oct 02, 2016 at 04:38 PM about the 2017 Ford Mustang

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

So, after talking to a lot of people and seeing a lot of
videos I'm convinced the Ford Mustang is ok for snow
driving with studded winter tires and traction control.  I
plan on getting my 2017 mustang next spring but I'm not
sure what trim or what size wheels and if they matter?
Most reviews I saw for snow driving were for the
Ecoboost but all trims have the traction control, so I'm not
sure if it must be a Ecoboost as I'd rather buy a new v6. I
don't care about speed. I just like how it looks and just
want it to get through the snow (not blizzards). Is there a
special winter package that comes with some trims? I
thought I read that somewhere. Thanks!

You can purchase the V6, then get another set of rims and mount some snow tires on the rims. Then swap them on every winter. I would suggest some decent snow tires like Bizzacks, but not studded tires. too noisy and harsh. No such thing as a winter package on a Mustang.

Mustang is rear wheel drive and will have a disadvantage over front wheel drive in winter driving conditions. Tom's advise is good as always.
