I ordered it new in January of 2019 (no option car). It arrived on 7-3-19. I picked it up on 7-5-19. The first Ford oil service was June, 2020.

The car is really good:


I have had no issues with the car. I love the Brembo brakes. I like the dash shown temps on the water, oil, transmission, and rear diff. It also shows the tire pressure on all four tires which I have separately tested to be correct. The touch screen works great (I just listen to Pandora). The Torsen diif works great. The 6-speeed is great and easy to work.

The recaro seats are great for me (6' and not fat).

The best thing is certainly the sound of the flat plain crank engine going to 8000 Rpm.

In July 2019 I found locally a new GT350 on a dealer lot, I actually wanted to order one in base trim with no Stripes. What I found was a white with sports seats, carbon dash and electronics package, so I took it thinking if I do order a 20’ I’ll have to pay a hefty ADM At delivery
Took the 19’ no ADM... never looked back....
Enjoy the GT350....it’s unique and special in so many ways

I’ve got the same good news with my ‘19 GT350....
Couldn’t be happier, especially with the discount I got ;-)

I'm enjoying my 19. Had a nice 17 but sold it back to Ford for an engine light they had trouble figuring out. Anyway Ford was great to work with and I really liked my Shelby. So back to the 19. I went with our Shelby club to track days with both years and the 19 is enough faster that you can tell the difference. Any time you put on stickier tires and then tune the setup to work with them, well it's not difficult to understand. My 19 ran with two other fast cars, one with a blower and the other a 427 engine. Both newer cars with track setups. While I could only run with them, not pull out and pass, it was impressive. Eventually the 427 car pulled over and let us pass then the car with the blower ran off the track, I think trying to gap a little GT350. Great fun, going back out this year.

Frank,
Just saying, but the 2019 Mustang Shelby GT350 has the same engine but with the better Ford coded tires?

My stock tires say FN, and they are really road racing slicks. They really find grip when warm.

I drive my car all year (snow and cold are rare here).

It's the fastest GT350:

Look under the Sticky section, I posted all the changes for 19. Nothing wrong with 15-18. Ford needed to upgrade the last couple years, like they have many times before.

Frank,
I wish I owned a 2015 GT350 with only 137 made by the factory.

It seems to me that 2016-2017 had the big production numbers. In 2018, the production was lower.

The sweet spot was 2019-2020 with lower production and more performance.

I posted my 2019 sticker that I ordered in Jan., 2019 and delivered on July, 2019 (some issues with lack of steering wheels?). The sound of the engine is worth much more than the price. It explodes with power at 4,000 Rpm>> 8000 Rpm.

It is still a great car with ~25,000 made. I get around 14 Mpg so not a good car for the climate change people?

Have you checked your milage going steady 70MPH on the interstate? I get 23-24. I know that's not the way we want to drive a Shelby but I was in a situation where traffic was heavy enough and riding along with everyone else worked best. Very low RPM in 6th at 70 and the engine management doesn't need to put in much fuel to cruise.
