We've had our '11 Equinox LTZ AWD for a couple weeks now. We live in the Seattle area, which just got a bit of snow. For those who don't know, snow is treated like a natural disaster in the Seattle area. You can not imagine the chaos that follows a moderate snowfall. That said, our Equinox AWD performed wonderfully! I was pleasantly surprised how nicely the AWD/Stabilitrak handled the road conditions.
