The whole FCA diesel emissions ordeal may be put to rest in a few more months, as recent reports indicate that the U.S. is expected to approve the proposed FCA diesel fix in late March or early April of 2018.
The trouble started when the EPA grew suspicious of FCA after the automaker failed to explain why certain vehicles were polluting at higher levels than permitted. In May of this year, the EPA filed a lawsuit against FCA, alleging that 2014 through 2016 Ram 1500 pickups equipped with the EcoDiesel V6 could potentially be in violation after researchers allegedly found that it was spewing 20 times the legal limit.
We can’t see the future, but it looks like things are going as well as they can for FCA with this lawsuit. Be sure to re-visit FCAuthority.com for the latest ‘FCA Dieselgate’ news updates.
