If you were expecting major changes from Fiat today, you'll be disappointed as the company's North American strategy only calls for releasing two new models.

Things will kick off later this year when the company introduces the 500X in Europe. It's essentially a reimagined version of the Jeep Renegade and previously spy photos have shown it will closely resemble a five-door 500 with an increased ride height.

The model will eventually be joined by a mysterious "specialty" vehicle that promises to be emotional and pricey. It could be Fiat's version of the Mazda MX-5 but nothing is official as of yet. Regardless, it will be offered in Europe and the United States.

Speaking of Europe, the company will launch a new compact sedan in 2015 and it will be joined by hatchback and wagon variants in 2016. The company also plans on releasing a B-segment model in 2016, a compact crossover in 2017 and a redesigned Panda in 2018.
