Big 2.5 increase sticker prices to combat slow sales
A recent sales droop is causing all three automakers to increase the sticker price on the majority of its models. Granted, the biggest bump is about a half of a percent, but it's still an increase, regardless.
For the General, that inflation amounts to $91, while Chrysler raised its sticker $94. The big bump came from the Blue Oval boys, whose increase amounted to about $146. Granted, all those figures are on a sales-weighted basis.
Automotive News has a full breakdown of each one of the Big 2.5's brands, but Chrysler at $254, Cadillac at $163 and Dodge at $146 showed the biggest increases. Jeep, on the other hand, only saw a jump of $6, while Saturn prices didn't budge an inch.
