OK, so snow probably has been the last thing on your mind for severalweeks.

But it won`t be long before you will have to decide if this is the yearyou opt for four-wheel drive to get to work and back. And if you can`t make upyour mind until the first dusting of powder, your dallying probably will cost you a few thousand.

We test drove one of the better four wheelers on the market, the compactBlazer S-10 in Tahoe trim.

The Blazer is roomy and comfortable. Another plus is the rugged styling.It looks like it will plow through the snow. As added insurance it featuresfour-wheel drive. To ensure it stops when the roads are snow-packed (or rain- slicked), antilock brakes are standard.

There are two drawbacks, one being that unlike the new Ford Explorer, you have to reach down and over to grab and pull the transfer-case lever to shift to 4WD. Explorer requires only that you point your finger toward the dash and push the button marked 4x4. The other is that the Blazer S-10 doesn`t offer a driver-side air bag.

The Blazer is powered by a 4.3-liter, 160-h.p. V-6 engine teamed withfive-speed manual. Our test vehicle was equipped with the optional (a hefty$890) four-speed automatic with overdrive.

The V-6 with automatic is rated at 17 m.p.g. city/22 highway, better than the 16/20 rating with the manual. With 4WD, when the first blizzard hits youreally won`t care what the rating is as long as you get home in one piece.

The 4.3 V-6 provides good power, and overall ride and handling are verygood, providing you accept that no four-wheel drive utility vehicle is goingto cushion your behind like a luxury sedan.

Base price for the 4WD Blazer is $17,215. The Tahoe package adds $4,743,minus a $1,200 discount. Standard equipment on the Tahoe includes power brakesand steering, power windows and door locks, 15-inch all-season radials withraised white lettering, air conditioning, tilt wheel, intermittent wipers,rear-window defogger, cruise control, tinted glass, luggage carrier, tailgate release, rear window wiper/washer, dual sport mirrors, leather seats and AM/FMstereo with cassette and digital clock.
