Ford MPG Litigation
IN RE: FORD MOTOR CO. F-150 AND RANGER TRUCK FUEL ECONOMY
MARKETING AND SALES PRACTICES LITIGATION
United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan
Case No. 19-md-02901
On August 1, 2019 the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation ordered a number of related cases to be transferred to Judge Sean Cox of the Eastern District of Michigan for coordinated proceedings. The In re Ford case is in active discovery.
Keller Rohrback and co-counsel filed suit against Ford Motor Company on Monday, June 10, 2019. Filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, the litigation comes after investigation by Plaintiffs’ counsel and testing by experts relating to Ford’s calculations of the fuel economy of certain vehicles, including the 2019 Ford Ranger. Independent testing conducted by Plaintiffs indicates that actual road load for the 2019 Ranger was higher than that used by Ford during certification (and provided to the EPA), meaning the fuel economy from the vehicle would have been overestimated during certification fuel economy testing. Using the road load derived from actual on-road experiments would produce worse fuel economy estimates than those listed on the Monroney label attached to the trucks.
Keller Rohrback has a track record of success in holding car manufacturers accountable for selling vehicles that don’t live up to the promises made at the time of sale. If you or someone you know owns or leases any of the affected vehicles, please contact attorneys Gretchen Freeman Cappio or Ryan McDevitt by phone at 866.560.4043 or via email at Cars@kellerrohrback.com to discuss our investigation and your potential claims against Ford.
