I wouldn't worry about the snow and ice if that's the primary reason preventing another Challenger purchase. I live in Anchorage, Alaska and drive my Challenger year-round with the factory all season tires without problem. An engine block heater, low-temperature windshield washer fluid, Rain-X on all the glass, WeatherTech mats, and careful driving technique is all that's required. A set of Blizzak snow and ice tires will further aid driveability if your area experiences a lot of ice, and a weekly run through an automatic (preferably touch-less) car wash with under-body wash will partially mitigate salt corrosion. With this said, you will find the Jeep a more capable snow vehicle overall, but the Challenger does just fine.
