Question QUADRA-TRAC I good for deep snow?

Looking for some info from snow experts...

I'm looking at buying an Altitude Grand Cherokee, and I'm wondering if quadra-trac I is going to be good in deep snow, slush, etc. ?

I love the way the Altitude looks, but I want awesome snow performance. I do not want to get stuck in another Michigan winter! Will the Altitude with quadra-trac I fit the bill?

Excellent explanations here: http://www.jeep.com/en/4x4/
But remember, you can get anything stuck if you try hard enough.

QTI is excellent in the snow, especially when equipped with snow tires. Most WK2s are built with QTI, many here run them.

QTII and QD may get you there with less wheel spin or drama. QTII (and QD) has low range which can be useful off road or towing a boat+trailer out of the water. I have a QD as I didn't want any compromise.

I'm familiar with how the systems work on paper, looking for real world accounts on how QTI does in deep snow, blizzards etc.

While you are waiting for comment you may want to try a search. Snow performance has been discussed several times over the years.

How a vehicle does is somewhat subjective, what is important to you? The WK2 QTI is as good or better than any AWD type system out there.... but tires will make or break your day in deep snow. QTII and QD can be better starting from a dead stop as they have snow mode.
