FCA Is In Trouble With The Feds
May 23rd, 2017
It looks like Fiat Chrysler will be joining Volkswagen in a dieselgate situation. They are also under the microscope for allegedly using software in diesel V6 Jeeps and Rams to allow excess diesel pollution. According to Jalopnik, if the EPA and Fiat Chrysler can’t come to some sort of agreement, the U.S. Justice Department will sue the automaker. And that could happen as early as this week, so things are escalating quickly for FCA.
However, from what FCA has said it doesn’t sound they it’s going to back down quietly. It told Bloomberg that “FCA US will defend itself vigorously, particularly against any claims that the company deliberately installed defeat devices to cheat U.S. emissions tests”. So we’ll see how it plays out…hopefully better than it did for VW.
This Sunday at 9am there’s all new tech from the shops. In Detroit Muscle it’s the start of a new project…an over the top giveaway drift Mustang. With some help from Pro Drifter Vaughn Gitten Jr. the Detroit Muscle crew takes on one of their wildest projects yet.
And this week on PowerNation Katie features the 1967 Gabriel El Camino that you can enter to win. Truck Tech’s Jeremy and LT haven’t finished it yet, but we wanted to show it to you now after the wild paint scheme Jeremy laid down. Gabriel’s Director of Marketing Jonathon Gore will join Katie to talk about the 50th anniversary of HiJacker Shocks and how this El Camino is a celebration of that. It has a 6L LS making about 550 horsepower and of course comes with HiJacker Shocks. Jeremy will stop by also to talk about how he painted it, including an amazing water droplet effect. Check it out this week on PowerNation. To enter you can visit www.Gabriel.com or www.PowerNationTV.com
