Thats because development costs were paid off 10 years ago! And it's still selling. Just like the B Series.
Hopefully they do a good redesign. Keep the bed the same size, just make it a bit more comfortable inside.
My dad has a 1998 B2500 and its nearly identical inside to my 2007. THe biggest thing they need to do is update the inside and do something with the suspension. It rides like more of a truck than a full size. I just about get tossed from my seat when I pull out of my driveway.
They have continued to develop the powertrain, sort of. The 4 banger in 98 was a dual spark plug, 20mpg piece of crap, now its a modern Duratech. The automatic in mine is NICE, Mazda can make a damn fine tranny.
