To see the new level 1-60 content, you only need base WoW.  To play from 60-70 you need Burning Crusade, 70-80 is Lich King, and 80-85 is Cataclysm.

Levelling up is certainly faster but getting to 85 is still a large time commitment.

You can't play a Blood Elf or Draenei without BC, you can't play a Worgen or Goblin without Cataclysm, and you can't create a Death Knight without Wrath.  Everything else is fair game.

I can assure you levelling up is a far faster process than it used to be.

Yep, its faster, more fun and there's more overall story.
 
You can be any choice of race/class except for Blood Elves, Draenei, Goblin or Worgen and Death Knights as long as you only have the base version.
Burning Crusade will add Blood Elves, Draenei and Death Knights, Cataclysm adds Goblins and Worgens.
 
The game is very fun nowadays, more fun then grind so far.

Know than when we say the leveling is "fast" we still mean somewhere in the neighborhood of 100-200 hours.  My level 61 character has 5 days played, or 120 hours of play time.  But it's much faster than it used to be.
