May 6, 2019—FCA has received final approval of a class-action settlement that ends a dispute about performance of certain vehicles equipped with 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 engines.

The Court also approved consent decrees between FCA US, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and agreements with all 50 states and U.S. Customs and Border Protection, all of which were reached in January.

The approvals open the official benefit period for affected customers, paving the way for free engine-control software updates and an extended powertrain warranty for diesel-powered 2014-2016 Ram 1500 pickups and Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs. The software update does not affect average fuel economy, drivability, durability, engine noise, vibration, or other driving characteristics of the vehicles.
