I am old enough to collect Social Security. I have been racing cars since my 20s. (Driving/Racing on snow and Ice is exciting. (More so on the track with proper equipment.) It is just the Equinox Traction control and Stability Control that makes it a bit boring... but OK to be safe on the road.)
You can shut those off though!

I am comfortable with 60mph travel on certain snow conditions. I've plowed mountain roads and consider myself to be moderately competent with winter driving. The 2019 Redline with the factory Hankook tires even with all 4 wheels engaged never inspired confidence. Worse yet, I got the car stuck in a dooryard in 6" of snow - it was humiliating.
We recently had Michelin CrossClimate 2 tires mounted - no snow yet to try it, but I'm hopeful.
Those hanooks are brutal in the snow. I test drove an equinox with them before settling on a terrain. It was terrifying in the snow. Even with the terrain tires I replaced them with all weather ones pretty quick since we bought in winter. They are much better.

I have a 18 awd diesel and have driven it in some pretty thick snow no problem. Not through rivers or rock beds but through some hilly terrain just the other day actually. Expected to hit the hills a couple times with the fascia bottom but it didnt.
