Upon further research, the base price last year at this time for the FWD JX35 was $41,250. Does anyone know what the base price was when it first came out?
As I mentiond I am PAYING CASH, so while I am not that largely concerned with price increase (I suspect all of QX60's competitors will marginally increase for inflation, too) I would still like to know the potential increase. I'm guessing it will probably go up another $300-$500 for the 2015s, unless they reconfigure what is offered on the base model. And to foreverJX's comment about the transmission, I personally would like to see them offer a traditional transmission instead of the CVT. However if they stick with the CVT, what happens with its reliability (or lack thereof) between now and next year when the 2015s come out will definitely factor into my decision.
