Ah, the foibles of rear-wheel drive in the snow. Many of us know the helpless feeling that lack of traction or watching someone come up behind you in the rear-view mirror struggling with the issue. With today's advancements in throttle and traction control tied with an ever growing number of models available with all-wheel drive, putting power to the rear wheels is getting a lot of attention in mid-priced cars these days. Sure the Europeans didn't abandon all hope, and now the Americans are warming up to it again. AutoWeek takes a few "sponsored" driving courses in rear and all-wheel drive offerings from Cadillac and Ford fighting the snow and ice. If the trend continues maybe future generations of kids will be able to fight over who gets stuck sitting on the "hump".
