US Firm Sues Ford over Cheating Emission Tests

The plaintiffs are accusing Ford of rigging the engines to beat emissions tests which, sadly, is a story we've heard over and over as automakers like Volkswagen and Fiat Chrysler battled their own allegations, in the past two years, of similar practices.

The company is Bosch, a German engineering and electronics company that supplies parts for automakers around the globe.

Ford's F-250 and F-350 Super duty trucks with Power Stroke turbo-diesel engines built between 2011 and 2017 may produce more emissions than claimed by the company.

If this sounds familiar, it's because it is.

A Ford spokesperson insists that the vehicles don't feature defeat devices - or software that disables an emissions control system outside of a test environment.

Bosch is also named as a defendant in the case, and vehemently denies wrongdoing, but says it won't comment further as it sorts out the pending allegations.

The complaint alleges that Hagens Berman's independent testing showed the affected Super Duty trucks "emit levels of [nitrogen oxide (NOx)] many times higher than (i) their gasoline counterparts, (ii) what a reasonable consumer would expect, (iii) what Ford had advertised, (iv) the Environmental Protection Agency's maximum standards, and (v) the levels set for the vehicles to obtain a certificate of compliance that allows them to be sold in the United States".

Meanwhile, Ford and Bosch have denied the allegations.

In a statement Wednesday, Bosch stated accusations against the company "remain the subject of investigations and civil litigation" and it takes accusations of diesel software application adjustment "very seriously".
