Today's fast paced world allows you to gather information on any given subject in moments. Sometimes, there can be way too much information and getting through it can be a daunting task. Because we care about you so much, we're sharing some early September Jeep news headlines to keep you up to speed without taking up an entire morning's worth of time having to read. Check out the latest Jeep news below!
The new Jeep compass was recently spotted on the pavement during a test run. Closer in size to the Honda CR-V, the completely redesigned Compass is based on the same frame as the Renegade. The Cross over utility vehicle has been in the works for a few years now, and now the vehicle many have been calling the Compatriot (as it replaces both the Patriot and Compass models) is coming sooner than later. As stated in this article
, the new CUV will roll out in 2016's third quarter (we're here!) making its debut first in Brazil. Thanks to Autoweek.com for the original article.
This is a very popular and unorthodox piece of Jeep news. Many Jeepers often venture through shallow streams and bodies of water to get to the other side while trailing. Some even go as far as attaching a snorkel
, but that's usually the end of the story. The adventurous folks at Dirt Every Day
went above and beyond by putting a diesel engine in their 97 TJ Wrangler
and waterproofing it to not get across a lake, but through it! Watch the video at the link provided. Much appreciation to alt_driver.com for the original post.
You may not have heard yet, but the new Galaxy Note 7 phone has been making headlines due to their batteries exploding while being charged. Samsung, just a few days ago, has recalled its phones but there hasn't been enough time (and maybe not enough incentive) for people to bring in the notorious phone. Recently a charging Note 7 exploded in a St. Petersburg family's Grand Cherokee. After returning from a yard sale on Labor Day, the Florida family was offloading a new desk for their daughter when the phone exploded and set the vehicle on fire. Luckily no one was in the vehicle at the time it blew up. The local fire department put the fire out. Thanks to Fox 13 News for the original post.
