It’s been a great year for the automotive industry. Sales in the US are once again expected to top 17 million cars. SUVs remain all the rage. According to data compiled by Kelley Blue Book, US consumers have purchased or leased more than 7.2 million crossovers and SUVs over the first 11 months of the year.

That represents more than 46% of all passenger vehicles sold in the US.

The single largest segment of the market, even larger than full-size pickups, is the compact crossover/SUV with nearly 2.9 million units sold so far this year.

Aside from the sales figures, there have also been some outstanding individual performers. For example, the Kia Stinger surprised us all and nabbed Business Insider’s Car of the Year Award. The Stinger’s eye-catching looks, powerful engine, and expertly-tuned suspension proved to the world that South Korea can, indeed build a world-class sports sedan.

On the electric front, Jaguar became the first traditional carmaker to launch a luxury electric crossover SUV while Tesla’s Model 3 finally ramped up to deliveries.

As 2018 comes to an end, it’s time to look forward to 2019. Here’s a closer look at some of the hot new and revamped cars, trucks, and SUVs we can’t wait to check out in the coming year.
