From looking at photos posted on Autotrader.com, it appears that AWD (Q4) models have a much taller wheel gap, not the look I was hoping for. Just another reason to forgo the AWD option and save yourself 2k in the process. I'm in Northern Va where we get on average 25 inches of snow per season. I'll continue to mount winter performance tires but I'll opt out on the Q4 option.

Not sure which shocks are used but Eibach or other aftermarket will surely have springs to dial the car in a bit further.

I guess with the AWD they presume people will be going over worse terrain on a regular basis (ie much more snow, etc.) so they raise the car up higher to accommodate? Or perhaps the transaxle in the front requires more clearance underneath?

I noticed a Maserati Quattroporte in the parking lot last night that was also a Q4 model - it too had (what appeared to be) a raised suspension. I think all FCA "Q4" models come with a raised suspension. Just 30-40mm can make a big difference visually.
