TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - Union leaders and politicians are kicking off an effort to make sure Toledo keeps making the Jeep Wrangler.

They joined hundreds of current and former autoworkers at a rally Monday to send a message that Toledo will do everything it can to hold onto the vehicle whose roots date back to World War II.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is considering moving production of the Wrangler out of Toledo so that it can be made with an aluminum body.

The automaker says the changes needed to make a redesigned Wrangler would be too costly at its current plant in Toledo that also makes the Jeep Cherokee.

Toledo’s mayor already has met once with the automaker and says there are plans to arrange another meeting in the near future.
