The U.S. government filed suit today against automaker Fiat Chrysler, alleging that it equipped more than 100,000 vehicles with so-called defeat devices to circumvent federal emission standards. The software — installed on diesel-fueled Jeep Grand Cherokee and Ram 1500 in model years 2013 to 2016 — allegedly cause the vehicles' emission system to "perform differently and less effectively during certain normal driving conditions than on federal emissions tests," resulting in nitrogen oxide emissions above allowable levels during day-to-day driving, the Environmental Protection Agency said. Fiat Chrysler maintains that its software was designed to detect not testing conditions specifically but temperature and other factors that could damage the engines if emission controls are activated.
