Horrible snow traction 15 Grand Cherokee

My last car was Honda Cross tour (AWD) with snow tires for Buffalo winters. I bought the GC and immediately put Blizzaks on it and expected to climb buildings. . . My Honda handled better. I'm snow plowing (turning wheels and keep going straight) and sideways on turns. Slushy roads feels like a fish tail. The Dealer says all is good on sensors and stability controls, and to drive it in 'SNOW' (4 high). I would appreciate any thoughts - I expected more, but think this is'nt working right.

WOW, your first post and it's a doozy! I only have Nitto Grappler G2 AT tires on my 14' Overland but it plows through snow like it's a snowcat! I also had a Honda (Accord) with new Blizzacks, many years ago. With front wheel drive, yes, it would go anywhere in the snow. Just as long as it wasn't too deep, then it too was a snowplow! However, I am sooooo impressed with the Jeeps' capabilities! Not sure exactly what is wrong with yours . . . It almost sounds like you are driving on snow covered ice roads at a fast clip and losing traction & control, though. Hopefully, others with similar circumstances will chime in!
