Selling and merging are two entirely different things.

True, but it could be argued that it's not really helping the Accord, and the new Camry is being propped up with deep discounts.

I know, right? The irony is that it probably costs as much to do an indistinguishable facelift as it does to do one that is noticeable.

Now, that new Ranger is going to tear up sales. And force toyota to rethink the tacoma facelift, i hope. And wake nissan up.

Nissan has been so out to pasture under the Renault regime. The next Frontier will be the Navara . The Tacoma is a great truck hampered by ugly styling. I wouldn't NOT buy a Tacoma, but I'd forever be thinking how odd it looks.

For some reason, the thought occurred to me that FCA effectively quit the sedan business some time ago, simply because it wasn't able to produce decent vehicles.

They just didn't tell anyone.

Giulia is a very decent sedan. Tipo is a bargain.

It's a decent sedan if you'll put up with quality control issues, reliability nightmares, and high cost of repairs once out of warranty.
