My wife is driving an SUV. Granted, the Subaru Forester is not a hulking Chevy or Ford, but it has impressive cargo capabilities, full-time all-wheel drive with traction control and stability control, and it beats any truck I have ever owned in the snow and ice. It gets ~27mpg. At less than $20K with a Sport-Shift Automatic transmission (you have to negotiate to get such a price), it ought be on the radar of anybody looking for a capable vehicle (carrying passengers and cargo) that will have to handle well in foul weather.
