Earlier this month, the German automaker dropped plans to seek USA approval to sell 2017 Mercedes-Benz diesel models.
The Italian automaker said it was "disappointed" in the lawsuit and "intends to defend itself vigorously, particularly against any claims that the Company engaged in any deliberate scheme to install defeat devices to cheat USA emissions tests".
Fiat sold almost 50,000 diesel Ram pickups in the United States in each year of 2015 and 2016, making it the largest-selling diesel-powered light truck.
In January, the EPA identified eight emissions controls in the Jeep and Ram diesels that weren't disclosed as required in applications for clean-air certifications filed with the agency.

The federal government claims Fiat Chrysler intentionally installed software in some vehicles to circumvent Environmental Protection Agency emission standards, according to the new civil complaint filed Tuesday. But there's also the question of what is, and what isn't, a "defeat device".
The complaint, by the Justice Department's Environmental and Natural Resources Division, says the devices, which tell the vehicle to operate at legal levels only during emissions testing, violate the federal Clean Air Act. Marchionne argued in the call that Fiat never attempted to create software to cheat emissions rules. At the same time, it's planning a software update that it hopes will address officials' concerns - whether or not there was intentional deception, the company isn't taking any chances.
FCA, the seventh-largest automaker in the world based on total annual vehicle sales, is an worldwide automotive group. It earned $2.6 billion in profit in 2016 on $116 billion in sales.
US -listed Fiat Chrysler shares were down 2.9 percent at $10.44. The EPA said in a statement Tuesday it will try to move its case to the same court.
