Not all of them, my 1973 Cougar weighs as much as my 2000 Subaru and with 200 pounds of sand in the runk and back wheel drive I can tell you that 30 years ago that Cougar sucked in the snow something wicked, as did my Camaro and my moms Olds wagon.
More frontwheel drives and all wheel drives make it easier these days in my opinion.
