Jeep Pickup Truck Delayed Until 2018

Unfortunately, the Jeep pickup truck that was scheduled for release in 2017 was delayed until 2018. Mike Manley, CEO has said that FCA is focusing on existing projects with the Wrangler and Grand Cherokee. As it seemed like the pickup was a done deal, we find it interesting/surprising that the release was pushed back. Is there more to this story? Only time will tell.
