If I were in a two-car household this would be my choice as well. However, the Mach-E AWD ER is going to be the only vehicle thus, range is king. Seattle is hilly with slick roads from all the rain which makes AWD great.I reserved RWD ER for maximum range. But have since changed my mind and plan to flip that to AWD SR when actually ordering.
I realized that (like pretty much all BEVs) it just requires too much compromise to take a BEV on a long 75 MPH road trip. So I'll just make it the around-home car (<150 miles/day). In which case range won't matter (210 miles is sufficient). And since it doesn't matter, I'll go ahead and get the AWD. (And save $5000 by not getting the ER battery.)
I'm north of Denver where we get a little snow and ice (although not as much as our reputation suggests). So AWD would normally have been a given. I only went RWD on the initial reservation to squeak out the extra 10% range for long road trips. Now I realize that just doesn't work well on the 800 mile trips I'd want it for. Even if I didn't own a 2nd (ICE) vehicle, I'd considering renting a car for such long trips.If I were in a two-car household this would be my choice as well.

I am going going with the AWD/ER GT. We only have about a week with snow or ice in Anacortes, WA but it can happen when you don't expect it and every hill turns into a mountain. I had my worst winter experience driving my '69 Mach 1 across the entire length of North Dakota towing a double snowmobile trailer on glare ice. I had always thought of the Dakotas as being flat but glare ice changed that.I'm in for the AWD here. I think I spun out my RWD Mustang too many times as a teenager. Better driver now but still plan on this being my every day car even during the winter. I also opted for the long range version. I certainly don't need the longer range 90% of the times, but having a Nissan Leaf I know how terrible winter/rain/speed is on range. As that 210 potentially dropped down to 150 or less on some days, I'd rather have the breathing room.
