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. The justice department’s lawsuit filed last summer alleged that FCA violated the Clean Air Act by installing at least eight undisclosed auxiliary emission control devices (AECDs)—more commonly known as defeat devices—on the 3.0-liter diesel vehicles.
