FWD cars can actually be pretty tenacious in the snow because the weight of the engine/transaxle is sitting right on top of the drive wheels. FWD is vastly better in the snow than a rear-wheel-drive car.

I recently replaced my 2011 FWD GMC Terrain with a 2018 GMC Acadia and went with FWD again instead of AWD. If it handles in the snow as well as the smaller Terrain I will be fine, and it should with the added weight, large tires and ground clearance. The AWD option adds $2,000 to the cost of the vehicle and subtracts 1 MPG from the fuel economy.
