It’s official: Edmunds, one of the top online resources for your car questions and more, has released its list of top 2019 car and truck models to watch out for. Considering that vehicle buyers spend roughly 59% of their time doing research online, this list is superbly helpful.
Highlighting styles like trucks and new electric vehicles, the automotive resource has predicted the top ten best vehicles on the market right now and coming soon across a number of different manufacturers. One of the cars to look out for? The comeback of the BMW 8 Series Coupe.
The BMW 8 Series (pictured top, courtesy BMW of North America) is set to release its M850i xDrive model with a 523-horsepower V8 engine. This is the first time the world has seen the 8 Series in more than 20 years. Modern updates include a carbon fiber body, offering around half the weight and 10 times the strength of steel.

My time in the new 2019 @chevrolet Silverado 1500 Trail Boss Z71 is nearly over. On-loan from #Chevy, this beautiful truck just rolled off the assembly line in Fort Wayne, Indiana last month and these should be hitting Chevy dealers very soon (if not now). Turned a few heads in this one today as I used it for some around town action. I don’t usually have use for a truck (at least in terms of putting it to use to its full potential), but I really want one. Totally digging this. . #RockFatherRides #ChevyTrucks #TrailBoss #chevysilverado #chevysilverado1500 #Z71 #offroad #trucksofinstagram #trucks #carsofinstagram #4×4 #4x4offroad
Other vehicles on the list include the redesign of the classic Chevy Silverado (look for a feature on that coming to The Rock Father™ Magazine shortly) and Ram 1500, a comeback of the Ford Ranger after a 10-year hiatus, and the Genesis G70. Even Jaguar is looking to delve into electric and hybrid car models with the release of its I-Pace, making it a possible rival for Tesla in the future.
Other models include the third rendition of the Honda Insight, a new Lexus model dubbed the Lexus UX, the Subaru Ascent, and the Volvo XC40. Some of these models are hitting stores right now, but you might want to save up a little money before visiting a dealership.
While most of the models settle around a $30,000 to $35,000 price point, the new model from BMW hits the highest price point at $112,895. Meanwhile, the Honda Insight rounds out the lower prices at a cozy $23,725.
Feel like someone’s missing from the list? You aren’t wrong. The Mercedes-Benz EQC is one of the manufacturer’s first electric cars and has been on the tips of everyone’s tongues for nearly two years. However, the long-awaited announcement left out one important detail regarding the efficiency of the car: how long the battery will last.
With only a tease at how long the battery will truly last, the company repeatedly shirked a final number when they claimed the car would have a range of “around 200 miles.” Much to the disappointment of car enthusiasts and would-be electric car owners, this seemed to deflate the anticipation for the new vehicle.
While an estimated 77% of cars on the road need repairs or maintenance, the fall release of 2019 cars is an important time for car owners. With the top list of vehicles to watch out for officially released by Edmunds, it might make or break the car buying expectations for the year.
