You can see that in the preview or, more easily, by turning on the solid preview in the top toolbar. It might be worth experimenting with a v-carve type toolpath on the top and bottom letters as the smaller letters (especially the M's and Y's) would look better but you would need a very acute (probably 30 degrees) bit to do that.
You can use the "clock" (Toolpath Summary) icon on the toolpath tab to get an idea of carving times. This won't be accurate until you've cut an actual job of this type and set the scale factor accordingly though. It can be used to see the relative differences of different toolpath strategies though.
On an aesthetic point I'm not sure about the MOPAR part. I would either remove one set of vectors so the lettering became solid or use a different toolpath so the sunken part wasn't so pronounced on those letters as I think it might look odd compared to the original when painted.
