Patriot Towing

Do all Patriots have the capability to add a hitch or towing package? I have a 2015 Patriot Sport 2.0L, FWD,manual transmission. Just wondering if I would ever have the option of being able to put a hitch on and, if so, what the max capacity would be.

PKR2015,

As per the owner's manual, the maximum trailer weight rating is 1,000lbs. It is recommended that you do not exceed this weight.

Ok thank you. I just didn't know if the oil cooler kit was an option for my jeep to increase the amount of weight it could tow. I appreciate your help!

So, I have a 2015 Patriot with the 2.4 L engine. If I get the proper towing package the manual says I can tow 2000 lbs. That's good, because I want to tow a vintage 16' Shasta trailer that weights 2000 lbs. However, the manual also syas the frontal area limit is 32 sq ft. The Shasta trailer is 7' wide and 8' high. That is 56 sq ft. Does that mean I cannot tow it with my Patriot?
