The 2019 calendar was heavily revised from the 2018 schedule. The championship expanded from five rounds to six. The Rallies of Portugal and Turkey were removed from the calendar, while events in Italy and Wales were added in their place.
The following crews were entered into the championship:
All teams compete with an identical car built by M-Sport. The team announced that a new model of Ford Fiesta was introduced for 2019, one that is still built to R2 specifications, but featuring a new engine and drivetrain. The new engine package is capable of producing 149 kW (199.8 bhp) of power, up from the 127 kW (170.3 bhp) produced by the engine used in 2018.
2019 sees the creation of the FIA Junior WRC Trophy of Nations, which awards to the nation of the driver or drivers who score the most points. Only the highest-placed driver from each event will be awarded points for their nation.
