Model Year

Model year is a term used to describe the production year of a vehicle. It is typically used to differentiate between vehicles of different generations or versions. The model year usually starts in the fall with production beginning in the spring, and can vary by manufacturer. Model years are often denoted by a numerical system, indicating the year in which the car was made, such as 2020 for cars manufactured in 2020.

It is important to note that model years can also refer to when an updated version of a car has been released, regardless of when it was actually built. For example, a car may have been built in 2019 but its model year might be 2020 due to changes made from one year to the next. In this case, it would be referred to as a 2020 model even though it was actually produced in 2019.

When shopping for a vehicle, it’s important to pay attention to the model year since it can indicate what features and options come standard or available on each trim level. Knowing which model year you are looking at will allow you to make an informed decision regarding which features and options you want for your vehicle and ensure you get exactly what you are looking for.
