JGC redesign moved possibly to 2019
Honestly, they can afford to do this as they did huge refresh for MY2014. If they wanted to they could have called that a redesign. Look at the "redesign" Subaru outback that came out this year - LED DRL lights, some tweaks to the exterior and new infortaintment system.
MY11-13 look quite outdated right now but MY14, 15 + they are definitely still fresh and competitive. They barely got all the bugs worked out in that platform, why abandon it now? Maybe they can get better reliability ratings. There is another light refresh scheduled for MY16, should be enough for another 2 model years. Staying with the current platform for another year or two It just makes sense to me ...
All that being said I will stay away from first model year like from a wildfire. Way to many issues on a brand new 50k truck. Yes, things get fixed but every time I visit dealership It is like pulling teeth to get things fixed - "i cannot replicate the issue", "that is how it should work", "we don't have parts", etc ... I think I did hear every type of excuse possible.
