Within Legends, there are many different Star Destroyer classes - Victory, Interdictor, multiple Imperial class, Super Star Destroyers, etc.

What models are present in the new Disney canon?

  • Interdictor has been seen in Star Wars: Rebels, so that one is officially canon now – DBPriGuy Dec 20 '16 at 22:50

Venator-class

These are the Star Destroyers used in the Clone Wars, seen in the Clone Wars animated series and Revenge of the Sith.

Victory-class

Mentioned in the canon novel Tarkin:

Originally a cramped garrison base deployed from a Victory-class Star destroyer, Sentinel now sprawled in all directions as a result of prefabricated modules that had since been delivered or assembled on site.

Secutor-class

Also mentioned in Tarkin:

The Secutor-class Star Destroyer Conquest hung in fixed orbit above the Carida Imperial Navy Deepdock Facility Two, some half a million kilometers from the eponymous planet.

Tarkin Chapter 21: "Dissolution"

Tector-class

Identified in the short story "The Levers of Power":

Other Star Destroyers in the Imperial line had suffered far worse damage — the Vehement and the Tector-class Harbinger had been destroyed

Rise of the Empire "The Levers of Power"

qaz-class

Mentioned in the canon novel Catalyst:

Krennic inclined his head in acknowledgment. "Preliminary results indicate that the energy released during the test-fire had the destructive power of the combined batteries of a qaz-class Star Destroyer."

Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel Chapter 22: "Exit Wounds"

Imperial-class

The class mostly seen in the original trilogy films. We know they still come in two varities, Imperial I-class and Imperial II-class, at least since the canon comic series Shattered Empire:

Shattered Empire 3

Super Star Destroyer

Clearly, the Super Star Destroyer, seen in Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, remains canon.

Resurgent-class

Used by the First Order:

Almost invisible when they first dropped from a port in the side of the immense Resurgent-class Star Destroyer, the four transport vessels were of a proven design.

The Force Awakens Chapter 1

Interdictor cruisers

Although they're not considered Star Destroyers, it's worth remarking that Tarkin introduces three separate varieties of Interdictor ships:

[P]ositioned against a radiant sweep of stars, floated three Interdictor vessels, a Detainer CC-2200, a newer model CC-7700 frigate, and—fresh from deepdock in the Corellia system and as yet untested—an Immobilizer 418.
