My EcoSport is AWD, and has similar MPG numbers. I currently live in the Midwest, and the AWD handles snow very well. So I will be getting AWD and the FX4 package.

Not a fan of hybrids myself. Plus as a Texan, it's kind of expected I burn petroleum products. Mine will be a light ranch truck, nothing too strenuous. But I want to tow more than I can currently with my EcoSport, which is also rated at 2000 pounds.

well, since I am a Democrat, it’s “kind of expected I drive a hybrid”! 🤣😂

Had to go with ecoboost awd, live in the Midwest so we get plenty of snow during the winters. Also wanted the tow pkg. Lariat + lux+ fx4 + 4k tow in cyber orange

Because of the budget I set for myself..... I picked the Luxury Pkg and moonroof over AWD, Here is SW Idaho we get snow but nothing that a set of Blizzaks can't handle.

LOL Since your are a Texan(Like Me) you'd think you would drive a "Big" Truck or at least tell everyone it's a Big Truck....LOL I couldn't resist

I live in California currently. FWD Hybrid for me for mileage. I've had an AWD BMW and a FWD Jeep Renegade, the Renegade was fantastic in the snow (I lived in Washington at the time), the BMW held her own in a PA winter.

AWD vs FWD has made zero difference to me in the snow. I'm from PA originally. You learn to drive the car you have. My RWD Thunderbird was the only car I had issues with in the snow lol.
