GM has also applied similar price increases to certain 2021 Chevrolet models and all 2021 Buick and 2021 GMC models. The automaker has not provided a reason for these sweeping price increases, although the price of consumer goods across all sectors increased by 0.8 percent from March through to April, the federal government said this week. This included an average 10 percent price increase in prices for used vehicles and 0.5 percent price increase for new vehicles. The year-over-year average price increase for consumer goods was also at its highest level since 2008 in April.
