Humble 2 cents: owned a 2016 and now a 2019. No break in between. So, have had a GT350 continuously since April 2016. Recommend the 2019.

Why do you recommend the 2019? Thoughts?

‘12 Boss 302, '19 GT350
I'd go '17. It has 10k miles on it, any motor issues should be sniffed out and fixed by now. That's a big $ difference between the two. Throw it around and enjoy.

It definitely isn’t a small amount. I could grab a warranty and still have almost 10g left over

The performance envelope is higher on the 2019+ since all the systems (magride/abs) are set up for a stickier tire. That only matters if you track the car or drive quick on backroads/canyons.

Do you guys feel like the engine longevity is truly better with the 2019+

how long can FORD ESP warranty’s truly go…I plan to keep this car 10 years at least…I’m leaning toward the 2019

That question has been kicked around since the introduction of the 2019 model year.
Did the ‘19 MO have upgrades/improvements? Yes it did but not just the engine.
Personally, I’d go with the ‘19 as I had a trouble free ‘19 for three years. My ‘19 was a retirement car that I had no plans to sell. Life changes and relocation changed our plans and I sold it.
If I moved back to a fair weather state, I’d probably buy another low mileage ‘19 or ‘20 before I unpacked.

Anecdotally on here the 2017s seem to have the most problems so I'd get the 2019 for that reason especially considering you're planning to keep it a long time.

The number of problems per year seems to go 2017, 2018, 2016, 2019/2020.

I have a 2017, zero problems. But I only have 4,800 miles on it and no track time.
