My new 2019 is exhibiting this as well when on cruise control.
"When you're a hammer, everything looks like a nail." Why do humans forget this? Rampant issue would be flooding the boards with complaints echoing each other. How many Stinger Forum posters talk about their shitty, jerky, chiropractor-loving cruise control?I am having the same issue with a 2019 gt w regular non-adaptive cruise. This is obviously a rampant issue.
I read at the link below it's because of slack in the CC cable?

Just got done reading all 11+ pages. I have a GTS with 320mi on it and it surges on flat roads and hills. I tried putting it in manual mode, to see if that would help. I also checked it at 65 and 85, seems more noticeable at higher speeds. I'm wondering if it's tip-in or something binding in the throttle body. Before reading the other pages and seeing the datalog, I also wondered if it could be a boost control issue. One or two of the posts mentioned that it got better with miles, which makes me think there might be something binding that gets broke-in eventually. In any case, I make a monthly trip of about 5 hours round-trip and this will be fixed, one way or another.
Welcome with your very pretty Fed Orange.Exactly the same here, a 2019 GTS with non-adaptive cruise that now has over 600 miles on it. Sounds like the same symptoms some others have described. I noticed the surging the first time I used the cruise control on the Interstate, and it has persisted since then. It feels like quick but shallow movements of the accelerator. I agree that it is more noticeable at higher speeds and uphill, although I haven't had opportunity to use cruise on steeper hills/mountains yet. When driving in the same conditions without the cruise set, the car is perfectly smooth (as long as I am), so I suspect it is a function of how the cruise controls speed (throttle position?) rather than some other mechanical issue.
Although annoying to me, my wife hasn't felt it yet, so it must be near the threshold of what different people notice. Reinforcing that, I notice it less often on rough roads where the car is moving around more anyway.
We made our first pass through the dealer today with a "can not duplicate", so I'm interested to hear about any progress others make. While this doesn't ruin the car for me, it is an annoyance that I've never had on any other vehicle.
Welcome with your very pretty Fed Orange.
I've read on here of annoyances with their particular cruise control (adaptive and non) going away; either because they just get used to them or the jerkiness dissipates over time or probably a combination of both. I'm not surprised that "cannot duplicate" is the outcome of the dealer testing, especially if even your wife doesn't notice it. "Threshold" annoyances are as individual as color perception or opinions about the quality of a sound system (of which we also have numerous discussions about both).
I have the exact same issue, noticed it Immediately, I drove home from the dealer mostly on the highway and it was very noticeable. 2020 Stinger GT with 175 miles on itmine is more of a constant "surging" like the car is applying throttle, letting off, applying throttle, over and over to maintain speed. It's really not that bad, I'm already used to it.
Some do that. And some of those "get over it" over time; or it gets less noticeable; or it gets worse (a very few heard of).

Same issue! 2020 GT with 1200 miles on it now, started using cruise control around 800 and had that issue constantly. It feels like the car is constantly trying to figure out that last 1 mph to get to the speed you want. It overshoots, then undershoots, then overshoots, etc. I only drove it in eco since noticing the issue. I'll try the other drive modes and see if they're worse...I have the exact same issue, noticed it Immediately, I drove home from the dealer mostly on the highway and it was very noticeable. 2020 Stinger GT with 175 miles on it
