the document didn’t provide a specific figure the government had in mind for a fine, Bloomberg reports, but the Environmental Protection Agency previously estimated that FCA’s financial liability could end up as much as $4.6 billion.

In total, the government accused FCA of equipping about 104,000 diesel V6 Jeep and Ram vehicles made between 2014 and 2016.
