The revolving door that is Automotive industry is constantly ushering in new designs while old ones are sent to the gravel pits of crappy used-car lots. This constant change not only keeps up with the ever-changing demands of customers, but it also helps manufacturers gain the interest of new buyers by showing off their latest and greatest designs.

Redesigning a vehicle is a very delicate subject that can either revitalize an aging legend or destroy an icon. Some redesigns are smashing successes, like the fifth-generation Camaro or the C7 Corvette, but some are forever remembered as nearly killing legends, like the Mustang II or any Bangle-era Bimmer.

As we roll into the 2015 model year, there are tons of cars, trucks, vans and SUVs getting complete overhauls, and we’ve put together a list of the 13 most talked-about redesigns for 2015. Let us know in the comments section which ones you think are great and which should head back to the drawing board.

The Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon twins not only took a two-model-year vacation here in the U.S., but they also returned with a completely new design and mechanical goodies. The Colorado and Canyon were always capable midsize trucks, but the 2015 model year arrives with the goal of taking over the segment.

On top of the obvious differences on the outside, the Colorado and Canton twins also receive a new, more premium cabin, a new, 2.5-liter engine with 200 horsepower, a new, 3.6-liter V-6 with 305 horses, and a soon-to-be-released 2.8-liter diesel engine with 180 horses and 324 pound-feet of torque.

      As odd as it sounds, that is not a typo. It’s amazing what manufacturer’s can squeeze out of four cylinders these days. The Mercedes GLA45 AMG gets a massive 355 horsepower (if I remember correctly) from a 2.0-liter four-cylinder :).

      I just picked up a 2015 Genesis 3.8 HTRAC AWD last week … 300 miles ago, in Montecito Blue. This is after owning 4 Caddy’s. I love the room it offers. And the looks. And the sound system. It’s a tiny bit sluggish till it hits 2000 RPM, but after that, you can feel it pulling you. It was a bit costly as I opted for all the Tech ($52K), but their promotions got the price down to $44K. I leased it for literally $0 down and $555/month. I then paid another $85 to replace the Hyundai emblem with a 2nd Genesis emblem in the rear.

    Hyundai (and seemingly every other budget car maker) yet again creating copy cat designs molded from their better German (and even Japanese) competitors. The Genesis looks like equal parts 5 series, a7, cls, with a small hint of infiniti M without the ridiculous overstated curves. I guess it works, because I admit it does look ok. But it’s getting a little annoying that luxury German cars will revolutionize a design concept (remember the first CLS), and budget car makers start copy catting everything and all cars on the road start looking the same from certain angles. Beaded headlights were once a rare, but interesting site. But when you have even the most budget sedans and crossovers with them every day, they lose their exclusivity and cool factor. Besides the 4 door coupe concept that everyone started copying from the CLS (even Germans), I feel like German luxury brands pretty much stick to their roots, whereas everyone else is just catching up and taking cues from their bigger brothers risks. At least BMW has stuck to their guns on their headlight configuration. Who knows how long that will last.

    That’s why I drive a Bentley GTC. It looks like nothing else and has 500 screaming horsepower to move it along.
