Read on below as we examine the best cars, trucks, and SUVs of 2019 courtesy of Kelly Blue Book.
Cars Of The Year
Although the sedan is being pushed out by the crossover there are still consumers who want a family sedan. There are still many benefits to driving a sedan from the gas efficiency to the comfort factor. Maybe you don’t want an SUV, even if it is a crossover. There is still a good selection of sedans on the market right now that offer superior driving characteristics and a bevy of other features that make them worth seeking out. The modern sedan has come a long way in terms of quality and design. You’ll feel the difference when you get behind the wheel.
Whether you prefer German engineering or you want one of the industry staples such as the Camry. Choosing a new sedan has never been easier, and the dealerships are just throwing the deals out left and right. We look at a few things when it comes to choosing our top cars of the year. First and foremost is the quality and reliability of the car. The Kia Stinger was among the top-ranked sedans in the segment, combining a sporty exterior and wonderful driving characteristics. Then you have the Alfa Romeo Giulia, a sedan that incorporates Italian styling with a luxurious and interior. Check out the 10 sedans that made it into our 2019 Cars Of The Year gallery.
SUVs Of The Year
The sport utility vehicle has gone through phases of popularity and innovation. What started as a rugged truck-based way to take you off-road has morphed into a car-based ride. Crossover SUVs are more popular than ever, and every automaker is rushing into the market. Whether you want a Lincoln or a Mitsubishi, you’re sure to find a crossover SUV that will fit your personality. There are a few things that gauge what constitutes a top rung SUV for us. The first of which is whether the vehicle is functional and can perform everyday tasks with ease. Cargo space is a must because growing families are the main buyer for crossover SUVs.
Off-road capability is also an important factor because after all if it looks like it can go off-road it should. You’ll never know how important it is to think about these options until you are faced with purchasing a new crossover SUV. Thus we go through the crossovers in our list with a fine-tooth comb to make sure that they stack up to today’s standards. Sure the SUV is no longer a gas-guzzling behemoth but there still should be some aspects of ruggedness. We chose the Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon and the brand new Alfa Romeo Stelveo as two of our choices for SUV of the year. Check out the other choices in the gallery.
Trucks Of The Year
There is no denying that 2019 has been an exceptional year for trucks. A plethora of new models have hit the market and more are on the way for next year. In terms of quality and refinement, the modern pickup truck has come a long way. There was a time when the pickup truck used to ride like a tractor but that is no longer the case. Nowadays the pickup truck is often more refined than a high-end luxury car. When we rate the best trucks for the model year we look at things such as the payload capacity and the features.
When you go to purchase a pickup truck, you want something that’s going to last for a long time. Every truck is going to be different and we have rated what we believe to be the top 10 for the 2019 model year. We chose the Nissan Titan XD and the Dodge Ram as two of our trucks of the year. Both trucks have shown immense improvement in quality over the past few years. Check out the gallery to see some of our other choices for the truck of the year.
