Sneak Peek: 2019 SUVs

Sneak Peek: 2019 SUVs

April 5, 2018

People love their SUVs. They are the best-selling vehicles on the road today. In response, car manufacturers are churning out new models and revamping the old to keep up with public demand. Brand new SUVs are heading our way for 2019 and some much-needed upgrades to a couple of old favorites. Here is a sneak peek into what we can expect with the answers to questions you may have about 2019 SUVs.


Will Ford be updating any of their SUVs?


Yes, the Ford Edge will have new safety features, a more sculpted appearance, and two new trims. Ford has announced that the 2019 Edge “will be the first SUV to include Ford Co-Pilot360…” The new Co-Pilot360 is a suite of the latest active-assist safety systems. It includes a Lane-Keeping System, Blind Spot Information System with cross-traffic alert, Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, a rearview camera and auto high-beam headlamps. Adaptive cruise control with lane centering will be an available option. This new technology tracks lane markings to help the driver stay centered in the lane.

One of the new 2019 Edge trims is the Edge ST. This sporty new Edge will have a 335-hp 2.7-L V6 EcoBoost engine under the hood, a fine-tuned eight-speed transmission, paddle shifters, all-wheel drive and a sport-tuned suspension. The new Edge trim will also come with more supportive, leather-trimmed seats, a newly-designed glossy black mesh grille, and a new ST badge.

The other new trim is the Titanium Elite. This new Edge sits on new 20″ bright machined aluminum wheels with dark painted pockets. The front fascia and side cladding are the same color as the body, giving it a sleek look. The Titanium Elite also comes with stylish skid plates on the front and rear.


Are there any new luxury crossover SUVs for 2019?


Yes, Volvo has created an entry-level CUV for 2019. The Volvo XC40 is a five-passenger CUV that has 47.2 cubic feet of cargo room with the rear seat folded flat. It is available in the T5 AWD Momentum, and T5 AWD R-Design trims. Both are powered by a 248-hp 2.0-L inline four-cylinder turbocharged engine that gets 24 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway. The Momentum trim has a starting price of $35,200, and the R-Design has a base price of $37,700.

Cadillac has also produced a new compact CUV for 2019. The XT4 comes with a 237-hp 2.0-L inline-4 engine that is brand spanking new. This is another five-passenger CUV, but it is wider and lower to the ground than other CUVs. It has a starting MSRP of around $37,000, is available with FWD or AWD and in Luxury, Premium Luxury and Sport trims.

Lexus has revealed their brand new crossover SUV. The 2019 Lexus UX is a subcompact crossover SUV that slots in just below the NX. The UX will be available in a gas-powered model and a hybrid model. The UX 200 is powered by a 168-hp 4-cylinder 2.0-L engine. The UX 250h has the same gas engine combined with an electric motor. An F Sport package will be available eventually for people who want a high-performance CUV.

Infiniti has given the QX50 an overhaul for 2019. This nicely updated crossover SUV has a brand new Variable Compression four-cylinder Turbocharged engine that produces 268 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque yet manages to get a combined 27 mpg. It’s paired with a new CVT or Continuously Variable Transmission. The QX50 is loaded with the latest infotainment and active-assist safety technology and offers available upgrades like ProPILOT Assist. Nissan’s ProPILOT Assist includes more advanced safety systems like intelligent cruise control, steering assist, and lane-departure warning. Sadly, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are still missing from the infotainment system; however, Infiniti says they are working on making them available in the future.


Is Hyundai going to make a new SUV for 2019?


Hyundai is focusing most of their efforts on new and updated SUVs. The newly updated Nexo, with an improved range of 370 miles, will be out by 2019. A new A-segment subcompact CUV is also on the schedule for 2019 release.

The fourth-generation Santa Fe has been overhauled for 2019. It is touted by Hyundai as being less masculine and more family-friendly. The new Santa Fe is 2.8″ longer and has nearly 4 additional cubic feet of cargo space. Two engine options remain the same, but they are paired with a new eight-speed transmission. A 2.2-L turbocharged diesel engine has been added to three-row Santa Fe models.


Will there be big changes to any of the big luxury SUVs?


Mercedes-Benz is updating the G-Class for 2019. They redesigned the exterior to make the G-Class appear as though it is formed with one continuous sheet of metal. The result is a sleek, modern-looking yet classic G-Class. It’s longer than the previous model by 2 inches and wider by 5 inches. These larger dimensions give people in the front seat an additional 1.5,” and backseat passengers get an additional 6″ of room. Driver’s memory settings and heated seats in both the front and back are standard. An optional seating package offers an ergonomic design, front automatic lumbar support, massage and rapid heating and cooling.

The engine remains the same, but there will be a new nine-speed automatic transmission that shifts more smoothly, is more efficient and is quieter. It also has a torque converter that improves off-road performance. It will provide a choice of Comfort mode, Sport mode, and Off-road mode. An all-new independent front suspension, double-wishbone front axle, and trimmed-down weight provide better handling on the road.

The G-Class’ infotainment system has been updated with the latest technology and a touchpad controller. Available options include a digital instrument panel with two 12.3″ display screens and a control panel for driver assistance systems. Mercedes-Benz says the safety systems will be upgraded, too, although they haven’t announced specifics yet.
