The Top 5 Selling Cars in Alaska in 2012

Top five Alaska

Alaska requires a different kind of vehicle to handle both the terrain and the wintery conditions. While some of the most popular options for the Alaskan terrain in previous years included options such as the Subaru Forester and the Acura MDX, the 2012 top five models for winter driving are just a bit different.

  • Chevrolet Suburban – With its V8 engine and four-wheel drive, the Suburban handles rough and slick terrain with ease. It also has an 8,300-pound towing capacity, making it a great option for heading into town for supplies.

  • Honda CR-V – The AWD Honda CR-V comes with an Intelligent Control System, which helps increase traction in all weather. This model also has better fuel economy for those longer treks.

  • Chevrolet Traverse – This full-size crossover with AWD includes StabiliTrak, antilock brakes and hill-start assist, making it a great option for anywhere those Alaskan roads take you.

  • Jeep Grand Cherokee – True to the off-roading background, this SUV offers high/low four-wheel drive options and Quadra-Lift suspension, ensuring a great ride in rough weather.

  • Range Rover Evoque – Unlike its larger predecessors, this smaller option from the Range Rover line includes all-wheel drive in conjunction with Terrain Response and stability and traction assist. Add on the MagneRide dampers and you have an SUV that is optimized for performance and handling in all weather conditions.

The weather in Alaska can change quickly, leaving drivers to deal with snow and ice quite frequently. Each of these top five 2012 vehicles offer the traction and stability needed to handle icy conditions. When the weather isn’t an issue, the all-wheel drive capabilities offer improved handling over a wide range of terrains, ensuring a comfortable, capable ride that will get you anywhere you need to go in Alaska or anywhere else.
