Kelley Blue Book says this is exciting time to buy a new car

(September 11, 2019) IRVINE, Calif. — Whether you're on the hunt for a bargain on an outgoing model or eagerly anticipating the hottest new car to come, now is an exciting time to be car shopping. Kelley Blue Book recently examined the marketplace and uncovered which 2019 models are heading into retirement, and which all-new and redesigned vehicles are worth the wait and set to make a splash for 2020.

"Now is a great time to score a deal on one of the models calling it quits for 2019," said Matt DeLorenzo, senior managing editor for Kelley Blue Book.

"When a vehicle has reached the end of the line, car manufacturers and dealers are eager to make way for new inventory. While the production runs of these vehicles are coming to an end, all 10 are still available on manufacturers' websites and many are being offered at closeout deals."

Meanwhile, for car shoppers who are more interested in the latest and greatest, there are more than 45 all-new and redesigned SUVs, cars and trucks for the 2020 model year. After driving nearly all of them, the expert editors at Kelley Blue Book recently named their favorites.

"It seems like with each passing model year, there are more great choices in the new-car market than ever before," said DeLorenzo.  "There are several new cars for 2020 that we think are worth the wait. Each of our new favorites for 2020 stood out among the crop because they offer excellent value and reliability, or because they are breakthrough vehicles within their specific segment."
