DETROIT - Add Dodge trucks and GMC trucks to the domestic brands that have raised prices this winter.
They join Ford, Lincoln, Mercury, Chrysler, Plymouth, Jeep, Dodge cars, Chevrolet and Oldsmobile.
The GMC and Dodge boosts were moderate, as has been the pattern in all the winter increases. The GMC action added $73 to the average price of those vehicles, according to Automotive News. The Dodge truck increase, when coupled with the earlier Dodge car increase, raised the average price of a new Dodge $63.
When applied to the full fleet of 1999 General Motors cars and trucks, Automotive News finds that the GMC increase raised GM's average price $7.
The Dodge bump added $37 to the average price of a Chrysler-Plymouth-Dodge- Jeep vehicle.
The increases are sales-weighted; GMC accounts for just 9.9 percent of GM sales, but Dodge has 58 percent of the sales of the former Chrysler Corp.
The GMC increases ranged from $20 on about half of the new Sierra pickup trucks to $300 on the carryover Sierra 3500 line. Sonoma pickups rose $52; most Savana vans went up $90, and the Suburbans and Yukons climbed $120.
At Dodge, the Dakota pickups jumped $100 to $150, and every Ram pickup went up $100.
Hikes of $100 also were applied to the Durango sport-utilities, Ram cargo and conversion vans and Ram wagon.
