Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV can once again sell new diesel-powered pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles in the U.S. after environmental regulators approved modifications to its emissions-control software.

Approvals from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and California Air Resources Board will allow the company to sell 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Ram 1500 diesel models. The agencies had withheld certification that emissions-control software on the vehicles complied with clean-air standards after finding violations in earlier models.
