Clutch Engagement

First off, I've been driving 3 pedal cars for over 40 years, so I'm not speaking as a newbie here.
I recently picked up my 2014 GT premium with manual trans. In comparison to my wife's 2013 GT, it seems as though the clutch pedal engagement on my '14 is at the very top of the pedal travel. It seems to come in all at once & takes a lot of concentration to drive smoothly in traffic. I know all clutches have a different feel, but this difference seems a little unusual to me in that both cars are identical except for color. I haven't talked to my dealer yet, but will to see if there is any adjustment.
Just throwing this out there for comments @ this time.
Both cars are equipped with 3.55 rear, MGW shifter, Bondra clutch pedal extender, & GT500 AB's.

I'd let he dealer look at it, and if they cant fix the issue i'd look into removing the clutch pedal assist spring which will give a better feel of clutch engagement! I had the same issue with my stock clutch but when i added a supercharger i replaced my clutch and no longer have the issue!

I replaced my clutch and also replaced the flywheel with a aluminum flywheel and everything feels a lot smoother. The stock clutch and flywheel did not engage/disengage well at all.

I've read of quite a few cases of this. I guess I got lucky on mine, the clutch engages early and has a pretty nice feel to it. My previous car felt like it had an on/off switch for a clutch so I can sympathize with your aggravation. Since it's clearly not a driver issue, it never hurts to have it checked out, especially since it's a brand new car.
