2018 Jeep Wrangler Diesel: Things Aren’t Looking Good For It

By  | 

The EPA has filed against the FCA for going against the Clean Air Act as they didn’t reveal the 2014 to 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Ram 1500 had engine management software. This means that things are not looking too good for the 2018 Jeep Wrangler Diesel.

As the FCA kept this a secret means that there was higher nitrogen oxide emissions on 104,000 vehicles that were offered with the 3 litre diesel engine in the US.

The assistant administrator for the EPA said that failing to disclose software affects the vehicles emissions and this is a serious violation of the law as it may result in harmful pollution being in the air that people breathe.

The EPA are continuing their investigation into the impact it will have and they said that all carmakers need to be playing by the same rules and that they would continue to hold carmakers accountable if they try to gain an unfair and illegal advantage over competitors.

The shares of FCA have dropped and they may be looking at a fine of around $4.6 billion. The 104,000 vehicles that were affected have been sold since back in 2014 and make up one-sixth of vehicles that have been said to have the illegal software from the Volkswagen scandal.

The chief executive of FCA said that he feels it is unfair to the FCA and stated that they were not trying to break the law.

The 2018 Jeep Wrangler Diesel could become yet another victim as it has the same EcoDiesel that comes from the Ram 1500.
