I see Ford has priced it, and it is only a bit more than the outgoing FS. However, considering it has the 3.5 engine, the tiny price increase may be a bargain.
But what's with that clumsy throwback big old seamed airbag cover on a 2008??? That look was fine in my 1998 Ranger, but even the little Mazda2 now has no airbag seams. The VW Golf got rid of all the dash seams as long ago as the 1999 model. More and more people are beginning to notice these details. Ford just has to do better and the sooner the better.

As a people-hauler, I think you'll be happier staying with the mini-van, honestly.

I, personally, prefer cloth to leather because I don't slide around as much. But, if you have kids, leather is SOOOOOOOOOO much easier to clean.

Lots more here:
Leather vs Cloth Seats
I have one car with (hot) black leather seats and one with (now dirty) cloth and much prefer the cloth (although the cloth ones aren't heated).

The CX-9 GT actually has 20" wheels standard.

We have some very passionate people here in this thread. Glad to see folks are having a sense of humor about it.
I'll say this, if you have to ask what you get going from $30k to $40k, then stick with the $30k model. Obviously those things are not a priority for you, else you would have been looking for them in the first place!

Not true in my case...I just don't like to waste $$ for options I don't want or will never use.

It's simply choosing between a little more comfort, and a little more performance (though the choice definitely won't be easy!). The CX-9 is the sportier of the two, and handles a little better. But the Acadia/ Enclave has more space and comfort for about the same size, and still perform well. So if you are not wanting to move far from your minivan, go Acadia. But if you want sporty, go with the CX-9. They will both be priced about the same, so that probably won't be an issue.
