I believe the fact that you are taking the time to write this question already lets me know that you are concerned about the commute. I live by the mantra that if it bothers you today, it will most likely really bother you in future. As I'd recommend to anybody buying a house, do a trial run of your commute at various times of the day to know exactly what you are up against. If you are always in your car, it won't matter if you have a new home!!!
4S Ranch is a fabulous neighborhood with tons of upside. It will not disappoint.
Best of luck with whatever you decide!
