Ford increases truck prices

The latest price hike on Ford trucks averaged $125, according to an Automotive News analysis. When combined with Ford cars and Lincoln and Mercury models, the October corporate increase is estimated at $118.

The Ford truck boosts were $160 on most F-150 models and $205 on the F-250 Super Duty and F-350 Super Duty selections.

Sport wagons, vans and sport-utilities rose $55 to $205.

Elsewhere, Cadillac kept the sticker of its 2003 CTS sedan under $30,000 (it’s $29,990), but Cadillac said vehicles “with the most popular features” will start at $35,500 and a fully loaded CTS will be $40,400. The CTS goes on sale Jan. 2.
