Winters in Wisconsin are legendary. From polar vortexes to whiteout blizzards, Wisconsin takes quite a hit during this season. If you have lived here for any of these winters, then you know just how difficult it can be to drive on the roads during a snowstorm.

We get nickeled and dimed with one or two inches of it here and there as well, and that can still make for slick conditions. One way to potentially combat the nasty weather is by getting snow tires.

How does Ford Return to Park work?

Advances in technology and engineering are moving fast in all industries, including the automotive world. Innovators across the globe are looking for ways to toss the old ways of doing things out the window in favor of new methods. The process is not always smooth, however, and the road to change can be full of bumps along the way. This is particularly true of automobiles. One such change in recent years has been the gear shift. Some vehicles, such as the 2017 Ford Fusion, have been equipped with a rotary gear shift, or any other style that differs from what drivers are used to.
