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.
"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.

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".
