What you're not considering here is that there are 13 other states that have pinned their emissions standards to CARB. Manufacturers wouldn't just miss out on selling in CA but in those other states as well.It’s high time companies like FCA/Jeep release vehicles that have not yet received CARB approval to the rest of the country. When the people of Kalifornia are deprived of popular vehicles while their state gendarmes drag their heels, maybe they’ll demand a change. As it stands now, we let CA drive the entire nation’s environmental policies in many cases, including emissions certification. Their CA-approved gun list doesn’t affect enough people to gain the negative press it deserves...do the same with cars/trucks and they’ll wise up right quick.
BTW, in 2020, Colorado will be the 14th state to align their emissions standards with CARB.
