We are in the same exact boat as you. We live in Colorado and drive the passes all the time.
We are only pulling a small car, no large trailers.
The M2 is very nice but not necessary for most of us unless you are pulling really heavy loads.
Also, I don't mind being slower over the passes than the next guy.
Realistically, we are maybe a minute or two slower than those with larger engines/torque. If that is a concern to you, go for the M2. If not, save your money.
Pulling a car will not be an issue at all, regardless if you are in the mountains or the flat lands.
I drive slow all the time so I don't mind not being first to the top of a pass.
One more thing: I have driven them all and I believe the S2RV chassis rides wonderfully. I like to test suspensions on Colorado's brutal expansion joints and and freeze cracks all the time. S2RV handled things extremely well and I was pleasantly surprised.
