Can a VW Golf Alltrack Keep Up with a Jeep Grand Cherokee Off-Road?


What is it about a foolish quest that inspires us?

My number one pick for novels about foolish quests is Don Quixote, whose name literally came to mean exceedingly idealistic and unrealistic. Here’s why I’ve got Don Quixote on my mind: I’m in a Volkswagen Golf Alltrack behind a Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk at the mouth of a snowy off-road trail.

    Don’t be crazy. That Alltrack will never keep up with the Jeep simply because it has no ground clearance to it.

    I think it can keep up with most Jeeps all day long because most Jeep owners don’t even go off road.

    But the point is about off road. Heck any AWD can keep up with a dumb Jeep on the HWY.
