Chevrolet is a brand whose cars have been in many families for generations. There are years where their lineup knocks it out of the park, while other years end in a financial flop. 2019 brought about several phenomenal vehicles that weren't the best, but they weren't pushed to the bottom of the barrel either.
We have compiled a list of the best models that Chevrolet has released in 2019 based on U.S. News & World Report, and some that have even been already upgraded for the new year. They each have their pros and cons, but this list should help you make an informed decision. Keep reading to learn about the ranking of Chevrolet's 2019 car models!
10 2020 Chevrolet Malibu
The 2020 version of this car is relatively the same as the 2019 version, and we can't really be too mad about it. It is not the best in terms of interior quality, handling, or trunk space, but what is desirable is its reliability and low price tag.
It has a starting price of $22,095 which is one of the lowest MSRPs of any car in its class. You will even save money on gas as you can obtain around 22 to 36 mpg depending on the roadway and engine. You really can't go wrong with this vehicle, and it is something the whole family will appreciate.
9 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe
U.S. News & World Report has this ranked as the second-best large SUV in 2019. The engines have amazing power and the infotainment center is easy to use. There were not many changes for the 2020 model compared to that released in 2019, and the reliability rating is still expected to receive high marks.
It does not handle bumpy roads well or has a lot of cargo space, but if you only plan to use the first two rows then you can always use the third row for extra space. It has a starting price of $48,000 which is a steal for a vehicle with so many good qualities.
8 2020 Chevrolet Equinox
This is a great car if you are looking for something that will save you a bit of money on gas. It averages between 22 and 31 mpg and it handles the road with ease, which some of its competitors can't say.
You might want to consider the 2020 model if you are interested in some new driver assistance features, but the interior design and spaciousness are lacking compared to some other vehicles in this category. The price is average when compared to other vehicles in its class at a starting MSRP of $23,800, but you should consider upgrading to the better engine.
7 2019 Chevrolet Bolt EV
This is an all-electric vehicle that has managed to make its way up the list due to its range and spunky attitude on the roadways. This car is deceiving as it looks quite small from the outside, but after you look inside you will realize it is roomier than it appears.
The interior design and comfort are not the greatest, and neither is the price, but the pros outweigh the cons on this one. It will bring a smile to your face every time you drive the 238 miles without spending a cent on gas. You should consider going with the new model rather than a used model based on the tax incentives in your area.
6 2020 Chevrolet Sonic
This is rated third by U.S. News and World Report in subcompact cars, and it is not hard to see why. Its handling relates to that of a sports car, there is plenty of room to hold your things, and the infotainment system is easy to use.
The fuel economy is worse than its rivals with only 26 to 34 mpg, but it does make up for it with a middle-grade MSRP of $16,720. This is one car that will sell you during the test drive, so make sure not to count it out before taking it for a spin.
5 2020 Chevrolet Traverse
This car focuses on its passengers and cargo with 98.2 cubic feet of cargo space when you fold down both rows of seats. The ride is smooth and the infotainment system is easy to use, but the interior is subpar as well as the punch of its engine.
It has a typical large SUV starting price of $29,800 and it has received a reliability rating of 3.5 out of 5 from J.D. Power. It is comparable to other top models like the Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander, so if you are between these three then it really comes down to your personal preference.
4 2019 Chevrolet Impala
The 2019 Chevrolet Impala has been ranked third in large cars by U.S. News & World Report and has a low starting MSRP of $28,020. This alone will push you toward this purchase, but other things like the balanced handling, cargo space, superior infotainment, and V6 engine option will leave you signing the papers.
The interior design might not be the greatest, and the base engine isn't anything special either, and at this low price, it is still a steal. The high reliability and crash safety test ratings will convince you of its superiority as it outshines the competition.
3 2019 Chevrolet Camaro
This is Chevrolet's flashy sports car that is highly recognizable on the roadways. The powerful engines combined with its superior handling make it the perfect car for anyone with a need for speed.
The interior quality is not as great as many would have liked, but they did lower the base price of the vehicle to $25,000 which is much cheaper than that of the competition. It has an average reliability rating from J.D. Power and it even earned five stars in its crash test safety rating, so this is one car that should be at the top of your list.
2 2019 Chevrolet Cruze
This compact car is near the top of our list due to its long list of great features that customers adore. It has spacious seating and cargo space so you never have to sacrifice your legroom, the fuel economy is outstanding compared to others in its class, and the long list of added features put this at the top of a lot of shopping lists.
You can expect anywhere from 28 to 48 mpg and it has an affordable MSRP of $18,000. The interior is actually attractive compared to some of Chevrolet's other models, but if you want a speed demon this is not the car for you.
1 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
It shouldn't really come as a surprise to see this truck at the top of our list, because this is what Chevrolet was built for. There are several new engines to choose from, but the turbodiesel is the most fuel-efficient to help you save some money. The ride and handling are balanced and the interior is roomy enough for any passenger.
This truck knows how to haul with a max capacity of 13,400 pounds, and it has an average starting price of $28,300. It may have only achieved a third-place on U.S. News & World Report's full-size pickup truck ratings, but it is still number one in our books when it comes to Chevrolet.
