I’ve had my XLT SR since July I have taken 1 road trip that required charging away from home. I planned my trip with conservative charging stops planed around lunch time and booked a hotel that had charging available, sure that takes bit of planning but the other 99% of the driving has been done with just home charging and that has been a great time saver. I live in a cold climate and yes the truck does not go as far, but it still goes farther than I need it to in my daily use. One has analyze their use and see what will work for them. For me the SR fits the bill so I did not opt for extended range and saved around 20K. For 20K I can buy a gas vehicle and not worry about range on trips, although I have not felt the need.
