Had our new GT a couple of weeks. It definitely rides better, is smoother, steers better, the engine performs well and it loves to rev! the new dash instrumentation and ride command module and general cockpit layout is much nicer than the older models. Still getting used to the Sling top, but it seems nice overall.

the pluses for the new 2020 are all around..... it performs better, drives better and is generally an improvement in almost every area.

even the new Auto Drive transmission isn’t bad, I am actually getting used to it and it works well. I still prefer a regular stick shift but it is nice sometimes to not have to worry about the clutch. I can live with it, but some of the performance geeks better stick with the clutch.

So far my negatives are few. Some won’t like the Auto Drive, but it is actually pretty good. The ride command has a lot of loose ends and I think those will get resolved as I learn more about it, and with App and software updates. The initial Passcode reset AT THE DEALER, BUFORE IT LEAVES THE LOT, is a PITA but really a minor delivery issue.

So..... all in all I like it, I have had one minor design issue with damage to my rear fender when I hit a pothole and the softer suspension bottomed against the license plate. It was probably a fluke accident but it might be worth moving the license plate on units with a factory rear fender (like my GT) . Now I have to get the rear fender repainted on my 2 week old sling, and the special GT paint might be a challenge!

so, a few tweeks and I would say the 2020 is a winner. It is definitely better in almost all ways! The Grand Touring paint is striking and it gets plenty of looks?

The dark GT Green color and dark air dam demand some additional LED trim lights in spite of the new improved front lighting, so a few addition LED strips will be on the agenda soon! But we really like our sling lite up!

Our old #164 2015 Base sling was a great adventure with 5 SSITS, two trips to Colorado and 31000 miles. She was a good ride! Now a new adventure is ahead!
