Question Moving from Phoenix to DC. Do I winterize anything?

Same as topic title, do I do anything to the vehicle becides tires? Do I need to re-adjust the coolant and oil for lower temps since Im going from 110F+ temps to 20F?

Spoke to a service department and was told there was "nothing to do", and that they would only put the same SAE and coolant mix back in. I'm assuming this is because of their out of pocket maintenance program with 15K oil changes and lifetime fluids...not reality? I remember having to change my oil and altering my coolant for my older cars. I'm planning on driving this car into the ground...
