If you think THESE price increases are bad, just wait until they actually change something significant! If the 6th gen is ever released it will probably start at $75k for a bare-bones SR5...

Thatís very true. The real cost of a vehicle is the depreciation. These things hold their value so well that they are really very inexpensive to own. If you buy a $45,000 BMW and drive it for two years, youíll get $20K on trade in. If you buy a $50,000 TRD Pro and drive it for two years, you might still get $40k for your trade in. The real cost of that BMW was $25k. The cost of your PRO was only $10K. Iím just rounding off numbers here but you get my point. Iíve owned plenty of German luxury cars and the depreciation is brutal. Look at the suckers that buy those $110,000+ Mercedes S class sedans. Two or three years later they might be worth $50K. Thats some serious depreciation.

...but of course in my case, I'm paying full price because I don't ever intend to sell this Pro!

So, since 4Runners are made in Japan, do any of you (sorry if already mentioned) think the price increase is due to the current tariff trade wars. I know it is mostly for China, but everything is 'connected' these days.
