I can't think of any car manufactures that make a V4 engine, I've seen flat 4's inline 4's in cars. But to answer you question I would go with the V6 if the hills are what you say.

alfa Romeo made a v4 back in the day. Bit spineless tho...

in answer to your question, buy a diesel 4wd. You'll get the traction from the 4wd system with the bundle of torque from the diesel without needing loads of revs.

Thanks for your answers. I guess I meant I4 versus V6. Trying to figure out if a 4WD with an I4 engine will do it for me on the snowy hills. The I4 seems to have better mpg.

If It's mainly hills and lots of snow then you'll want a diesel for the big pulling power at low rpm, as I'm sure your aware, high rpm and snow = some of the best rally drifts/donuts ever in a Walmart/Asda/Tesco carpark. Not so good when your trying to get home after busting your balls at work all day and find yourself going backwards more than forwards cos ya gots no grip.

What kind of vehicle are you thinking of? Is it an actual 4WD or an AWD?

As long as all 4 wheels are powered somehow then meh... Think Subaru forester or even a land/range rover

Thinking a 4wd, 6v, SUV , something like a ford escape or a Toyota rav.

buy a range rover then, they literally will climb any mountain or cross any river
