GM raises prices on some of its models


DETROIT - General Motors Corp. has raised prices an average of 0.5 percent on about one-third of its models due to rising raw materials costs, a company official said Wednesday.

The company has 681 versions of its cars and trucks, and sticker prices went up from $60 to $425 on 239 of them, GM spokesman John M. McDonald said. Most of the increases fall into the $90 to $140 range, including a $115 increase on Chevrolet's Impala, GM's best-selling U.S. car.

The company will not raise prices on the 2007-model Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickup trucks, which are arriving in showrooms this week, McDonald said. The Chevrolet pickup is GM's top-selling vehicle in the U.S.

The increases were effective Monday and are driven largely by steel prices, which have gone up globally by 13 percent since January, McDonald said.

"We're trying to cover a portion, just a portion, of our increased costs of a number of materials and commodities," he said. "We've seen some pretty dramatic steel price increases this year."

GM reduced its sticker prices in January as part of a strategy to bring selling prices closer to the sticker price and reduce the company's reliance on rebates and other incentives to sell vehicles. Prices are still below pre-January levels, McDonald said.
