The settlement, which is expected to be formally announced Thursday by the U.S. Justice Department and the Environmental Protection Agency, is the second between the U.S. government and an automaker over diesel emissions-cheating allegations.
Fiat-Chrysler and the Department of Justice each declined to comment when reached by ABC News. The VW scandal extended to some 11 million other vehicles the company sold worldwide and led to USA criminal charges against eight people.
The vehicles involved in the settlement are the 2014, 2015 and 2016 model year Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs and Dodge Ram 1500 trucks with 3-liter diesel engines.
The settlement includes fines and more than $300 million in "consumer relief" and requires Fiat Chrysler to establish a recall program offering motorists an approved plan for modification their emissions systems. FiatChrysler has two years to fix 85 percent of the vehicles being recalled, and it will face more penalties if it fails to do so. He said not only did Fiat Chrysler break the law but that it worked to hide its conduct.
