2015 MSRP Affected CAD/US Exchange

Can anyone comment on the potential increase of MSRP due to the recent swing in dollar exchange? I understand the GL model is US built so I'm assuming the $$ will be 10-15% higher than 2014's

Nobody knows what they will do with the pricing but in the past, MB Canada will offer the same car with much more base options compared to an equivalent US model. In the end, when you price a US model with all the options, it ends up costing the same or even more compared to a Canadian model.

I learned that currency exchanges and trades do like to go their separate ways.
Still remember years ago coming from Germany to USA had to pay 3.2 DM for 1 U$. At the time new Mercedes in main street window in Frankfurt was equivalent of $10,000.
The cheapest MB sold in CA at the time was about $25,000.
Now German brands vehicles, especially SUV by MB and BMW are cheaper in US than in Germany.
Beats me.
