The analysis seems to be logical. Fiat has been tightlipped about their future plan. If they had something different they should have clarified when this kind of report/rumour started floating. Every manufacturer is talking about future product launches/plans to create confidence among buyers. But look at the answer Flynn has given which does not give any confidence. However they may not have taken decision yet. For jeep brand to succeed the success of localised c-suv is very critical. If it becomes success then Fiat may certainly stop Fiat brand. If not then they to change the strategy again. Hence 2019 is right. Assuming c-suv launch happens in 2017-2018 they have to take a decision in 2019. Main factor would not be customers or investment but it will be dealers. How far they stick to fiat and only jeep brand could makes business sense or not.
