Consumers hit Ford Motor Co. and Robert Bosch GMbH with a putative class action in MI federal court Wednesday, claiming the companies rigged at least 500,000 heavy-duty trucks to cheat emissions tests while advertising them as having the "cleanest super diesel ever".

The suit accuses Ford and German electronics firm Bosch of "knowingly installing emissions-cheating software devices in 2011-2017 Ford 250 and 350 Super Duty diesel pickup trucks", according to a statement from Hagens Berman, the law firm behind the suit. A common-rail fuel injection system precisely optimises performance and fuel-efficiency, while a high-pressure 29,000psi (2,000bar) fuel injection calibration enables smoother, quieter operation with reduced emissions.

Ford's new 3.0-litre Power Stroke diesel engine - manufactured by Ford of Europe - will deliver best-in-class torque, towing capacity and payload capacity for F-150 pickup customers in the USA, from later this year. Of course the estimated 30 mpg doesn't hurt either! Peak torque is delivered from 1,750 rpm, contributing to the F-150's 11,400lb (5,171kg) towing capacity and 2,020lb (916kg) payload capacity, alongside targeted EPA-estimated 30mpg highway rating fuel-efficiency, according to USA testing conventions.

Benintendi, a former teammate of Tate Matheny in Boston's minor-league system, has spent part of the past two offseasons in St. Some players have already fired CSE and have hired new representation or are looking to do so in the near future.

Neither Ford nor Bosch have reacted to the accusations. It lists 58 counts of violations of state consumer laws, false advertising laws, deceptive trade laws as well as violation of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO).

"We know that competing diesels with electric cooling fans have to dial back on power under extreme heat and altitude, so we decided on a viscous-controlled mechanical fan that has the capacity to move much more air across the radiator and intercooler in extreme conditions", said David Ives, Ford diesel engine technical specialist. The Stuttgart, Germany-based supplier has denied any wrongdoing in those suits.

Hagens Berman is no stranger to pursuing automakers over diesel emissions. The company, some drivers of its diesel trucks and regulators will meet in January to discuss a possible deal aimed at settling a class-action case.
