Opinion: Why can’t those who own guns and know the most about them take responsibility for ensuring they're used safely and without malicious intent?
Car redesigns have never been on such a rigid schedule. In the old days that you’re probably referring to, the 1950s and ’60s, the manufacturers did make a big deal every fall about “next year’s new models.” But in reality, that often meant a tweak of a taillight or a new piece of trim. The real, mechanical guts of the car were not changed every year. Or every other year.
The truth is that the complete redesigns — new platform, new engines, new interiors — are all over the calendar. And while product life cycles are shorter today than they’ve ever been, the average vehicle is still only redesigned once every six to seven years. And there’s no general assumption you can make about when that will happen. You’d have to check each manufacturer’s product schedule.
Top-selling cars get more-frequent updates. Poorer-selling cars get ignored for years on end, because the costs of redesigning them may never pay off. And pickup trucks don’t get redesigned that often, because their buyers aren’t as eager for change. To make things more complicated, some manufacturers stagger different types of major improvements.
