In an action that involved all brands except Hummer and the nearly deceased Oldsmobile, General Motors has raised sticker prices $157, or 0.6 percent, on a sales-weighted basis.
It brought GM's price increase for the 2004 model year to $696, or 2.6 percent, according to an Automotive News analysis. It was GM's fifth price increase of the model year.
Trucks bore the brunt of the latest boost, with many Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra models rising $155, $255 and $305. The Chevy TrailBlazer and Suburban and the GMC Yukon jumped $350. Cadillac Escalade SUVs went up $425.
On the car side, the biggest increase was $300 on the Cadillac DeVille.
By brands, the sticker price increases averaged $77 for Saturn, $107 for Buick, $143 for Pontiac, $163 for Chevrolet, $225 for GMC and $231 for Cadillac.
Subaru has announced prices for its 2005 Forester, Impreza and Baja models. They are up, but it is difficult to say exactly how much because of changes in model designations.
On models that can be compared, increases included $200, $350 and $525 on Foresters; $125 and $725 on Bajas; and $200 each on two Imprezas. Another Impreza was reduced $300.
