What is the meaning of "retooled"? I read it in the following sentence:
Cadillacís biggest seller is the SRX crossover (starting price: $37,330), which accounts for 29% of sales. The rest of the lineup includes the retooled XTS ($44,075), the redesigned CTS ($38,905) and the ginormous Escalade SUV ($63,745).
According the free dictionary, the meaning of 'retool' is
v.tr.1. To fit out (a factory, for example) with a new set of machinery and tools for making a different product.
2. To revise and reorganize, especially for the purpose of updating or improving: had to retool the city's economy.
So, I take it that meaning 2 is applicable here in the above sentence. It seems retooling is similar to redesigning. What is the difference between 'retooled' and 'redesigned'?
