That's the estimated average transaction price for new light vehicles in June, according to Kelley Blue Book. That's up $821, or 2.5 percent, from a year earlier.
Ford Motor Co. led the industry, KBB said, with a 4.6 percent rise, driven by the redesigned F-150, Mustang and Edge and its updated large SUVs. Nissan was close behind with a 4.5 percent increase.
Volkswagen Group, off 1.2 percent, was the only automaker to see its average fall in June, with the sagging VW brand wiping out gains by Porsche and Audi.
The figures don't include consumer incentives.
