for vehicle cold weather testing, take it to the UP

there is probably no better place to get that experience than the Michigan Tech Keweenaw Research Center (KRC), a research institute where automobiles and even military vehicles are tested for their ability to perform in less than ideal winter-driving conditions.

For journalists, the program kicked off bright and early in Marquette, Michigan, a city two hours by car southeast of the research center in Houghton. Why begin in Marquette? In part, it was for the airport there, which provided the most convenient access to the area for the journalists who came in the night before from as far away as Los Angeles and Miami. But it also provided an excellent opportunity to spend time in all-wheel-drive (AWD) Chrysler vehicles while traveling in “real-world” conditions, i.e., public roads likely to be packed thick with snow.
