Our extensive automotive knowledge and comprehensive testing help us separate the best from the rest.
Over the course of the previous year, the editors here at Car and Driver have had the pleasure—and yes, sometimes, even the pain—of having driven and tested hundreds of vehicles. From this wide array of contenders, we have selected our 2019 Editors' Choice for trucks, crossovers, and SUVs. We consider these to be the best pickup trucks, crossovers, and SUVs for 2019, and we recommend the following vehicles to buyers who are shopping in each of the categories as outlined below.
How did we determine the winners? First off, the winners of our 10Best Trucks and SUVs for 2019 automatically earn a spot on the list. Then we chose the rest using a wide range of criteria: the results from our Buyer’s Guide in-depth testing, how a vehicle performed at our test track, with some old-fashioned subjective desirability thrown in for good measure. If you're shopping for a vehicle in 2019, then allow us—automotive experts with strong car knowledge—to give you some suggestions.
Looking for a sedan, a hatchback, a coupe, or a convertible? How about a hybrid or an electric vehicle? You'll find the ones that we think are best here.
