FCA US files for diesel vehicle certification

Diesel Ram Jeep models resubmitted to EPA closer to sale now FCA US files for diesel vehicle certification
Malita Javier | 19 May, 2017, 20:42

The EPA said around 104,000 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs and Ram pickups from the 2014-2016 model years are affected.

"They can not be classified as defeat devices because we're trying to defeat nothing", FCA chief Sergio Marchionne said in January. 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.

Fiat Chrysler's 2017 diesel sales are on hold as the EPA and CARB, the nation's top two air quality regulators, investigate the company to determine if it had been using illegal emission-masking software in its vehicles just as Volkswagen had notoriously done in its TDI engines. The SUVs and trucks were in limbo after a January announcement by the EPA that it had discovered up to eight undisclosed Auxiliary Emissions Control Devices on those trucks that altered performance on emissions tests.

Macri destacó además que hay "muchísima vocación de profundizar la asociación estratégica integral " entre Argentina y China . Finalmente, entre los documentos firmados figura un memorando de entendimiento para la cooperación en fútbol.

"The filing is the result of many months of close collaboration between FCA US and EPA and CARB, including extensive testing of the vehicles, to clarify issues related to the company's emissions control technology", the company wrote in a statement.

Nonetheless, the stop-sale prevented those models from being sold in the US until the automaker corrected the issues.

Volkswagen was forced to pay $2.8 billion in criminal fines and $1.5 billion in civil penalties after the German company admitted to programming its diesel cars to trick emissions testers into believing the engines released far less pollution into the air than they actually do, in violation of the federal Clean Air Act.

FCA would not comment on exactly what the changes will be, though the company says that it "does not anticipate any impact on performance or fuel efficiency".

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV filed a proposed fix to its diesel engines that the carmaker predicts will resolve negotiations with the Justice Department and other US regulators. Gasoline versions of both models are now on sale, but the diesels (or any auto, for that matter) can't be sold in the US without emissions certification, and it's unclear how long the EPA will take to approve or reject FCA's application.

The Justice Department declined to comment regarding Wednesday's report, but FCA said today that it believes its latest actions "should help facilitate a prompt resolution to ongoing discussions with the Environment and Natural Resources Division of the U.S. Department of Justice and other governmental agencies".
