Earlier this year, the EPA announced that it was pulling for sale Jeep Grand Cherokees and Ram 1500 EcoDiesel models, which were both equipped with a 3.0-liter turbodiesel, after the agency said the automaker equipped those vehicles with potentially illegal undisclosed Auxiliary Emission Control Devices.
Jeeps and Ram pickups with the company's 3.0-liter diesel engines are one step closer to going back on sale in the US after the automaker announced Friday it would resubmit those vehicles to federal testers. The company plans to make the same modification to the emissions-control software in those model-year vehicles that it's applied to deploy for 2017 vehicles, if regulators approve. The company said it will also seek permission to modify the 2014-2016 versions of the diesels that are in dispute to end the standoff with federal regulators.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and California Air Resources Board in January accused FCA of illegally using undisclosed software to allow excess diesel emissions in 104,000 U.S. 2014-2016 Jeep Grand Cherokees and Dodge Ram 1500 trucks.
FCA representatives insist that its diesel engines did not cheat in any emissions test, and its spokespersons feel that litigation would be "counterproductive" in the current dialogue with CARB and the EPA.
FCA says it believes a software update can resolve the EPA's concerns.
Nonetheless, the stop-sale prevented those models from being sold in the US until the automaker corrected the issues.
The company said it "will defend itself vigorously, particularly against any claims that the company deliberately installed defeat devices to cheat USA emissions tests".
Once the cars got on the road, and their systems figured that out by monitoring the steering, the emissions systems would be turned off to protect the components, while performance and fuel economy would increase at the same rate as the emissions generated by the seemingly "clean" diesels.
The emission-cheating scheme has cost Volkswagen more than $20 billion in fines and settlements, in addition to goodwill among some USA drivers.
The statement concludes that FCA believes its actions should "facilitate a prompt resolution" of legal issues raised by the Environment and Natural Resources Division of the U.S. Department of Justice and other governmental agencies.
FCA US expects that following EPA and CARB approval, owners of the 2014-2016 MY vehicles will be able to receive the software updates at their dealerships.
