Detroit A year after a class-action lawsuit accused General Motors Co.
of cheating on emissions-testing with its Cruze Diesel, a new lawsuit
charges the automaker with similar acts involving diesel-powered Chevy
Silverado and GMC Sierra models.
The class-action suit covers a total of 705,000 vehicles equipped with
Duramax diesel engines. Plaintiffs are represented by the same law firm
that targeted Volkswagen Group for emissions cheating, generating billions
of dollars in settlements and penalties for the automaker.
Last year, the firm targeted GM over its Cruze Diesel, charging the
company with using computer software to produce lower emission readings
during testing. This new suit charges that 2011-2016 Silverado and Sierra
vehicles with the Duramax engine emit two to five times the levels of
nitrogen-oxide levels allowed by law.
Immediately following the lawsuits filing, GM issued a statement saying:
These claims are baseless and we will vigorously defend ourselves. The
Duramax diesel Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra comply with all U.S. EPA
and CARB emissions regulations.
Six automakers have been linked with diesel cheating since 2015. Tuesday,
the U.S. Department of Justice filed a civil complaint against Fiat
Chrysler Automobiles NV over allegations the company used software to
cheat on emissions testing on 100,000 of its diesel vehicles.
We have been systematically going through diesel cars made by all
manufacturers (doing independent testing) since Volkswagens scandal came
out, said Steve Berman, managing partner of Hagens Berman firm. That led
us to Mercedes, that led us to FCA and now were adding GM to the list of
The 190-page complaint filed by Berman includes 83 references to VW, and
asserts that the environmental damage caused by GMs vehicles could
surpass that of the German automakers vehicles.
This is what General Motors... promised when selling its popular
Silverado and Sierra HD Vehicles that its Duramax engines turned heavy
diesel fuel into a fine mist, delivering low emissions that were a
whopping reduction compared to the prior model and at the same time
produced a vehicle with great power, the lawsuit states. GM claimed
its engineers had accomplished a remarkable reduction of diesel
