Badgineering (badge + engineering) over time has proven to barely work as American automobile manufactures learned the hard way, for example taking a Ford Crown Victoria, giving it some new headlights and taillights, a separate grille, and a half-assed slightly-improved interior proved to hardly be a successful formula.
