Ford price increases lowest of Big Three

Ford Motor Company said it has notified dealers that suggested retail prices on its smallest and largest 1982 cars will be about 5 and 6 percent higher than for 1981 models. The rises were generally below the steep across-the-board increases of 7.7 percent and 6 percent previously announced by General Motors Corporation and Chrysler Corporation, respectively, opening the door to a possible pricing war for the 1982 model year, which begins in about one month.
