In 100-105º temps in sport mode and pushing it a bit this is about where i sit. I wouldn't worry about it at all. Most people i know with dodge products, their cooling fans do not even come on until mid 220s. Makes you think something is wrong, but i assure you it's fine. The cars are smarter than us when it comes to what they can handle.. and if it were to overheat, it goes into a fail-safe mode to protect itself.

While driving yesterday, the ambient was 81 and the cht reached 217 while cruising at 55. When I stopped and opened the hood, the coolant level was still at the minimum mark. The coolant is green as apposed to the orange that the 2019 had.

Did you have the A/C on? I just did a highway drive with 95 ambient temp and I was sitting around 200 CHT. But at lower speeds and driving around town I'm more around the 215 mark like that.

My car has a menu with various readouts, there's no coolant temp option but there is cylinder head temp, which is what I was looking at. I also have oil temp but its an inferred gauge with a green, yellow, and red zone.
Okay, thanks. I also have cylinder head temp, so guess that's what you were referring to with 'CHT'. Next best thing, I guess. I also have oil temp, but had to install the GT350 gauge pod, since the stupid digital dash doesn't have it. Finally, will engage launch control, and see at what CHT and oil temps the icon lights up, which should be when the engine is ready to get pushed hard.

The temps are between 216-221 regardless of whether the ac is on or off while not pushing the car. Don’t remember seeing anything over 205 on my 2019 A10. Taking it to the dealer for a different issue next week and will bring this up also but don’t much like my chances getting anything done .

If you have the digital dash, its under gauges > show gauges when you press the Mustang button on the steering wheel.

Use the up and down arrow after that.

Actually the DOWN arrow. The up one is for the G-meter, and they don't cycle, so can't go from the G-meter to the numbers.
