The timing couldn’t be worse, of course, just ahead of one of the busiest travel weekends of the year. We at The Car Guide understand that you’re excited to go celebrate Christmas with friends and relatives, but we would like to remind everyone to be extremely cautious on the road, or better yet stay home if the conditions are too difficult or dangerous.

If GM does go ahead and launch a Corvette sub-brand that would include an electric SUV, things could be different. We also think the upcoming AWD-equipped Corvette E-Ray hybrid will have an easier time in the snow, as evidenced by the video below:
