      I went from the all season tires to the General Grabber AT2s on my old Subaru outback. BEYOND noticeable change... I had snow deeper than the door trim and walked out of the snow with my outback with those tires, the car felt like a snow plow with snow pushing over the hood... then again it was a 98 outback without all the driver "assists", which neuter the car. I had ran through 2 sets of those tires on that car. I loved them so much I put them on my 96 RHD XJ. I can go places in 2WD in that jeep with those tires than I could only dream of in 4WD with all season tires on. I tell everyone that tires are more important than 4WD in the snow and mud.

      The auto deployment of snow chains on the bus comments really grabbed me. Are there videos out there of such mechanisms? Kind of like when Speed Racer hit #5 on his steering wheel!

      And the Raptor breaks down every 5000 miles while the Subaru goes on and on and on...

      Obviously the sizes will different, but PLEASE at least put the same make and model of snow tire on both vehicles - then do a comparison. That is the only way to provide a meaningful comparison.

      These dudes just need to stop with Subaru. Their comparisons are just dumb. I've yet to see a legitimate comparison video with any Subaru video from them.

      Quite a clueless review. Having both the Subaru and a Ram, I would take the Subaru in most snowy situations because the Subaru is better balanced at speed than the pickup which is light in the back (unloaded) and can spin in curves. In their pointless 30 mph straight line test, the Raptor will win but I don't see straight roads on most mountains. Just ask any experienced pickup driver and they will weight their truck bed with a 300-500 lbs of weight just to keep the shiny side up. This video looks like a paid video for Ford.

      Idiots you guys are so trying to shoot down the suburu. If you can’t drive better in the snow than that just stay home.

      Stupid ass why do you need to floor it in snow and see how fast you can get to 30?

      If it was in Quebec Canada they would be fined for driving a car without winter tires during the winter season

      Your conclusion is dead on the point of this test. Too bad the Subaru fanatics are more interested in trying to defend their product than following along with the point(s). Proper tires on any vehicle are important for the conditions. Ground clearance for deep stuff. I have a 2018 TRD Off Road 4Runner. Ran it in stuff like that where I live and all the gadgets turned on make it safe and stop fair enough. However, the stock tires some of these manufacturers put on for us is pathetic. With that being said, there were times I had to to turn all the gadgets off and go old school 4x4 and just mash it with momentum and tire spin to handle the steep inclines on snow and ice. When the stock tires are worn out, I will be going with KO2's or what ever is the greatest thing going at the time is for extra winter time security. The TRD is a beast and all that tech. for going and stopping is super. Just need the right rubber to match it.

      There is only one way to prove which of these vehicles is better and that's sales and its obvious the Outback shits on the FORD IN 90% of the situations. IE price, economy, safety, comfort, servicing, features the list goes on.

      This was pretty biased unfair comparison. I drove my 08 forestor with dry road high preformance tires with 4:32 tread up 15 grade hill in 20" of snow. i dont even see a foot of snow and you are almost getting stuck in a brand new outback? what that says is you need to work on your winter driving skills you tube is full of videos with subarus ploughing through snow up to their grill what you got there is kids play.

      So yeah... I just don't understand the point of the video. Even you guys point out the tire comparison in the beginning. Why the hell even bother making this video? Get the damn snow tires on the subaru and make an actual comparison video...

      We are going to put the $26,000 Outback with All-Season tires up against the $52,000 Raptor with snow tires. Wait, what? The Raptor is better. No, duh....

      One of the dumbest comparison ever. Why don't you put the Raptor on 2WD? The Outback comes with AWD the Raptor doesn't, it comes with 4WD, you have to switch it for 4WD. We are talking about when it comes from manufacturer right? Thumbs down. Dumb comparison.

      waste of time. better snow tires vs street tires. i don't even need to watch to see that the awd is going to lose. if your going to do the test do it with apple to apple tires. they make street style tires for truck or put more lug style on the awd and then do the test.

      Most of your SUV are top heavy lead sleds that cannot drive in snow or mud and always stuck...The Outback 6 cyl with low slung aircraft engine but standing high is a far better car
      and will last me 30 more years, just like my Ford Econoline van that is still running fine after 30 years hauling shit...Yes it cost me more but will still be there while these zeropean
      fancy crap last no more than 4 year any of them. Your truck have two wheels locked while the Subaru have FOUR WHEELED LOCKED ALL THE TIME! Just add real snow tires then get real traction!

      Using different tires defeats the purpose of capability comparison. Please use same tires when reviewing various cars. Hope to see this change in future videos.

      I work for Discount Tires and to see you use KO2's on a Truck and "ALL SEASON" tires on a Subaru outback upsets me. Do a proper test next time.
