Ford Motor Company is being sued by vehicle owners alleging that some 500,000 Super Duty trucks have been cheating on their diesel emissions, according to Bloomberg. Trucks included in this lawsuit are the F-250 Super Duty and the F-350 Super Duty.
These allegations claim that the Super Duty trucks are emitting as much as 50 times the legal limit for nitrogen oxide pollutants. So far, the suit affects trucks from 2011-2017.
Daniel Barbosa, a spokesman for Ford, has stated in an email that Ford is within all emissions regulations, and that Ford has installed no defeat devices on its vehicles.
Automotive supplier Bosch has also been listed as a defendant in this case. Bosch has allegedly worked with Ford to mask the defeat devices according to those in the suit.
