Every year, exciting new SUVs are released. But year after year, many of these vehicles don’t deliver on their promises; their updates are small, their capabilities are unchanged, and there’s nothing innovative about them at all.
That’s not the case for 2018. As the SUVs designed for the 2019 model year head to dealerships across the country, they’re arriving with incredible new features, impressive new specs, and cool new options. If you’re looking for an SUV that will excite you and offer something new, these are the coolest SUVs hitting the road in the months ahead.
2019 Ford Edge
The Ford Edge was never a “cool” car to drive, but Ford is making huge changes to up this midsize SUV’s awesome factor. The 2019 Edge has undergone an entire redesign, from its exterior to its interior. At first glance, it looks like an entirely sleeker and more stylish SUV.
The 2019 Ford Edge is building on its award-winning history as U.S. News’ Best 2-Row SUV for the Money by staying affordable but increasing its perks. With an all new performance trim, the Edge can now drive with a 2.7L twin-turbocharged V6 engine – and all trim levels come with a brand new 8-speed automatic transmission. And the new Edge is packed with new standard safety features, from lane-departure warning to blind spot monitoring to automatic emergency braking.
Priced at just under $30,000, the 2019 Ford Edge is both cool and a great, affordable buy.
2019 Infiniti QX50
Another completely redesigned SUV hitting the road for the 2019 model year is the new Infiniti QX50. While previous iterations were stagnant, the 2019 QX50 is a stunning, design-forward new take on a great luxury compact SUV – and the resulting SUV is one of the coolest available this year.
The 2019 Infiniti QX50 is cool at first glance, featuring curved lines, a sleek and smooth exterior, and standout headlights that adapt as you drive. But this SUV is also cool under the hood, with front-wheel drive and the world’s very first variable compression engine. This innovative engine changes its compression ratio automatically to offer higher performance or increased efficiency. It’ll adapt to whatever you need on the road. Inside, drivers and passengers will enjoy a comfortable cabin with added space, more entertainment features, and even improved safety additions.
Priced at just over $35,000, this all-new compact SUV is one loaded with luxury for a reasonable price.
2019 Subaru Ascent
One of the year’s best SUVs is an entirely new addition to the Subaru lineup: the 2019 Ascent. The first midsize 3-row SUV by Subaru in four years, the Ascent is a standout among the rest of the competition.
The 2019 Subaru Ascent is as capable as it is cool. With standard all-wheel drive, a 260 hp engine, and the ability to tow up to 5,000 pounds, this new SUV is a workhorse. It’s built with 8.7 inches of ground clearance – which is significantly more than the average SUV, letting you climb any obstacles. Additionally, you’ll find the Ascent loaded with the Subaru EyeSight technology suite. This gives drivers a new infotainment system, three different automated climate control zones, and smartphone connectivity along with WiFi and cool safety features like blind spot monitoring and lane change assistance.
As affordable as it is full of features, you can get behind the wheel of this all-new model for just over $30,000.
