 DETROIT, April 15 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. vehicle manufacturers will assemble an estimated 192,658 cars and trucks this week, Ward's Automotive Reports announced today.
 Although all union-affiliated assembly plants were closed on Monday, April 12, for the Easter holiday, this week's estimated production is 1.3 percent higher than last week's actual output, which also was a four-day tally due to Good Friday.

 Also, two regularly active U.S. vehicle assembly facilities -- General Motors Corp.'s Arlington, Texas, and Hamtramck, Mich., plants -- are idle this week for dealer inventory control, reported Ward's.
 Calendar-year 1993 U.S. car and truck output through the end of this week stands at an estimated 3,251,435, 17.0 percent ahead of like-1992, Ward's said.
