The even better news is that you should be able to find pretty much all of these at a Ford dealership near you since they are 2019 models.

Sure, later this year, these will be older models and everyone will be clamoring for the new hotness of model year 2020 vehicles. But that’s for then. For now, these 12 cars, SUVs, and trucks represent the pinnacle of what Ford has to offer. So give ‘em a look and see what you’re missing out on right now!

The 2019 Ford Fiesta

If you head to your local Ford dealership, then one of the first things you’ll probably see is the 2019 Ford Fiesta. This is a slick little ride with seating for up to 5 that is available as either a sedan or a hatchback. That versatility is something you won’t find from many other models, from any manufacturer really, and creates an offering that works for just about everyone. The Fiesta also has excellent fuel efficiency, with an estimated 27mpg in the city and 35mpg on the highway. Overall, there’s a lot loaded into this small package.

The 2019 Ford Fusion

If you’re looking for more of a straight-up sedan at a Ford dealership, then this is a great one to consider. It also has seating for 5 and a ton of excellent modern features like regenerative braking, which recovers more than 94% of the energy your vehicle uses while braking and sends it back to the battery. The Fusion gets up to 21mpg in the city and 31mpg on the highway, plus it has a number of hybrid options if fuel economy is a major concern for you.

The 2019 Ford Taurus

This is a more luxurious sedan offering from Ford that comfortably seats 5 and has a wide range of amazing features on offer. Heated and cooled front seats, a heated steering wheel, and great safety features like forward collision warning with brake support and active park assist make the Taurus incredibly comfortable and safe. It’s one of the most luxurious offerings you will find at your local Ford dealership, and well worth seeing for yourself.

The 2019 Ford Mustang

One of the greatest American cars on the road keeps up its tradition and looks absolutely stunning. This one only has seating for 4, as you would expect from a coupe like this, and is available in a range of different trim levels depending on the kind of performance you want. In some of them, the instrument panel is actually a customizable 12-inch LCD display that you can personalize with the information you want. Also, there’s truly nothing quite like cruising around in a Mustang convertible.

The 2019 Ford Escape

Looking to get away from the city for a while? Then the Escape is one of the best SUV options you’ll find at a Ford dealership. It is quite roomy, with very comfortable seating for 5, and marks the smallest offering from Ford in terms of an SUV. There’s available 4WD and up to 68 cu. ft. of interior cargo space, so you can pack up everything you need and just get away for a while.

The 2019 Ford Edge

If you are interested in a more powerful SUV with more features and luxury options, then the Ford Edge is a great option. There’s an available 2.7L V6 turbocharged EcoBoost engine that gives you plenty of power and performance for city roads, highways, or just getting away from it all, without killing the fuel economy. There are also great luxury and safety features available in the Edge, including a wireless charging pad, lane-keeping system, and pre-collision assist with automatic braking. This is one of the safest vehicles you will find at your local Ford dealership.

The 2019 Ford Flex

For those of you a bit more serious about your SUVs, check out the Flex, which has seating for up to 7 people and more than 83 cu. ft. of interior cargo space. It’s a perfect choice if you have a larger family or circle of friends, or just really need that space to load up and get away by yourself for the weekend. Plus it doesn’t sacrifice safety features like adaptive cruise control, a blind spot information system, or active park assist.

The 2019 Ford Explorer

The Explorer is one of the most luxurious vehicles you will find at a Ford dealership, without sacrificing size or safety features. It comfortably seats 7 people and has great interior features like an available moonroof, heated second-row bucket seats, and a heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel. Available safety features on the Ford Explorer include adaptive cruise control, a forward collision warning system, and blind spot information system.

The 2019 Ford Expedition

That big SUV you probably see dominating the lot of your local Ford dealership? Yeah, that’s the Expedition and it is an absolute beast. This beauty has seating for up to 8 people, with plenty of leg room throughout, and includes more than 104 cu. ft. of interior cargo space. This is a great option for both work and play thanks to a maximum towing capacity of up to 9,300 lbs. That’s tremendous performance from an SUV and really sets this model apart.

The 2019 Ford Ranger

The first of three pickup trucks you’ll find at your local Ford dealership, the Ranger has great options and can get a lot done, even if it is often overshadowed by its siblings. It has seating for 4 or 5 people, depending on the configuration you choose, and is a great option for getting away from the city thanks to a robust off-road package. Plus the Ranger has a maximum towing capacity of up to 7,500 lbs. when properly equipped, so it can get a lot of work done too.

The 2019 Ford F-150

What is there to say about the F-150? It’s been the top-selling truck for decades, and the top-selling vehicle in America for nearly as long. It has seating for up to 6 people and fantastic towing capacity and payload capacity. Not to mention a full suite of safety features available including pro trailer backup assist, blind spot information system, and hill descent control. Trust me, if you go to a Ford dealership, you won’t be able to miss the F-150.

The Ford Super Duty

Now, if the F-150 can’t tackle whatever work you plan on throwing at it, then there’s the Super Duty. This is certainly more truck than a lot of people need, but it’s a perfect choice if you want a serious workhorse. The Super Duty has seating for up to 6 people, and has a maximum conventional towing capacity of up to 21,000 lbs. when properly set up. Thanks to a lighter body weight, the Super Duty also has a maximum payload of up to 7,640 lbs. In other words, if there’s any job you need to get done, the Super Duty can handle it.

These are just the lineup of 2019 vehicles you can find at a Ford dealership. If you are interested in used models, then the list grows exponentially. But now you have a sense of what’s available, and can go to a dealership to see them for yourself and know just what you’re looking for.
