Chrysler is ending production of its Ram Dakota pickup Tuesday, resulting in cost 39 job cuts and possibly more at Dodge's Warren Truck Plant in Michigan, according to the Detroit News.
The newspaper reported that the union representing those workers believes the number of job cuts could be 150 or more.
In May, Chrysler Group CEO Sergio Marchionne said the company plans to replace the body-on-frame Dakota with a car-based "lifestyle" vehicle for the Ram brand, the Detroit News said.
The newspaper said a decision had not yet been made about where to build it.
