LANSING, Mich. — The nation's top-selling Ford F-150 pickup has been added to a class-action lawsuit that claims Ford Motor Co. misrepresented fuel economy test data.

The 2018 and 2019 Ford F-150 pickup was added to the suit on Monday, July 22.

The suit, seeking $1.2 billion in damages, originally focused on the 2019 Ford Ranger.

Seattle law firm Hagens Berman filed the lawsuit on behalf of truck owners.

The suit claims Fords false data is costing drivers of the 2018 or 2019 Ford F-150 pickup to spend an extra $2,000 on fuel.

An internal investigation into whether faulty computer monitoring caused the automaker to misstate fuel economy estimates is ongoing.

Attorneys tell the Detroit News and Detroit Free Press that the lawsuit could late be expanded to "include other Ford vehicles."

Ford said has not seen the complaint.
