Fiat wins ap­proval for 2017 diesel Jeeps, Ram pick­ups

Muscat Daily - - BUSINESS -

US en­vi­ron­men­tal reg­u­la­tors have ap­proved the sale of 2017 diesel mod­els of the Jeep Chero­kee SUV and light-duty Ram 1500 pickup, auto gi­ant Fiat Chrysler Au­to­mo­biles (FCA) said.

The move al­lows the com­pany to be­gin sell­ing diesel ver­sions of the pop­u­lar ve­hi­cles that US of­fi­cials had re­fused to al­low on the road over con­cerns about the emis­sions tech­nol­ogy.

The Ital­ian-con­trolled FCA said the go-ahead to sell the new diesel mod­els was the re­sult of months of talks with the US En­vi­ron­men­tal Pro­tec­tion Agency and Cal­i­for­nia’s Air Re­sources Board.
