Default Year to year changes

Is there a good reason, other than cost, why exterior styling remains stagnant? Why no exterior changes to the 1997 thru 2003 model for instance? 2005 thru 2013? 2014 to current? Subtle changes that we saw through the c-1, c-2 and c-3 model years were welcome and kept new model years interesting. Some makers continue to tweak taillights and other elements to freshen things. Mustangs for example tweak taillight configurations. Why must we wait for a new gen to see these changes to my favorite car? If you site the wide body variant or a striping package as a change, youíre missing my point. Thanks for your input. I miss the old days of anticipating what the new Corvette is going to look like from year to year. Itís hard to get excited about a 2018 vette when it looks just like the 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 model. What happened corporately to create this situation?

I love the fact that they look the same. I always get asked if my early 14 is a 17 or 18 lol
