TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) – City leaders in Toledo still are waiting to find out if Jeep Wrangler production will stay in its longtime home.
The CEO of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles had said last year that he expected a decision by the end of June.
The automaker is considering moving the Wrangler assembly line out of Toledo so it can be made with a partial aluminum body. CEO Sergio Marchionne has said the challenges of keeping the Wrangler in Toledo include the cost of reconfiguring their current plant.
City officials tell The Blade newspaper that they don’t know when an announcement will be made.
Jeeps have been made in Toledo almost continuously since the 1940s.
Toledo officials have given Fiat Chrysler an incentives package as part of their effort to keep the Wrangler.
