As more information keeps coming out on the vehicle, I thought it would be beneficial to keep track of the press releases as they come out.

As of today I will try to keep the list current, please feel free to add anything that I have missed. I'll try not to repost any links that we have already discussed.

Did anyone see this from the 1st article? "Fully loaded, an EX will top out around $55,000." :sign_crap: :eek: :furious3: I really hope they're wrong.

if that is in Canadian 45K/55K, then we have the hope it will be some where 32k/42K, that is not bad at all for this SUV

That sucks for the Canadians, considering the Canadian dollar is pretty much equally valued as the US$...

I saw that too, as I was reading they claimed base price in the 40k range and I was like huh??? Then I realized the link was .ca so it was a Canadian web site and there was nothing to be worried about. On a related pricing note, I recall reading someplace (I don't remember exactly where) that the U.S base price may even be "high 20's".

Edit: I found the article/blog post that claimed "high 20's" base price... it dates back to mid August and it can be read here:

Quote from the article, link below.

Taking the heft out:

•Lighter materials. The Infiniti EX35, which goes on sale in December, has a plastic rear hatch and aluminum bumper supports, suspension components, hood and wheels. Infiniti parent Nissan says the goal was to make the luxury sedan weigh about 60 pounds less than comparable BMW and Lexus models.

Some high-temperature plastics can be used for engine parts such as valve covers.

Looks like they added a 'color & specs' section. Under options did anyone notice the body colored aerodynamic body kit? woo hoo!! :hsdance: I wonder if that will be available at launch.

I saw that and it just makes December soooooooo far away. Bad thing is the price keeps creeping up to where I may not be able to squeeze it all into my budget. We shall see but I thought it was an interesting post by Infiniti. The prices are only a week away I guess so we will know more good info soon if that web report was correct. Come on December!!!!!!! :caged:
