Ford Motor Co. has raised prices $95 to $200 on most of its Ford pickups, vans and sport-utilities. Those lines make up 57 percent of the sales of the company's U.S.-badged new vehicles.
Automotive News estimates that the increase added an average of $93 to the price of a Ford truck on a sales-weighted basis. Prices of Ranger pickups were not raised, and the price of only one of the five Windstar minivans rose. Ranger and Windstar account for 24 percent of Ford Division truck sales.
Increases on the F-series pickups, the industry's best-selling vehicles, amounted to $95 on the F-150 and $200 on the Super Duty F-250 and F-350.
Coupled with price increases on Ford cars and Lincoln and Mercury cars and trucks, Automotive News finds, the winter increase has raised the average price of a Ford Motor light vehicle $98.
Since the end of the 1999 model year, Ford Motor Co. prices have climbed an average of $156, or 0.78 percent, according to Automotive News.
The company is paying rebates on many of the car and truck lines that are included in the latest price increase.
