towing question

I am correct in thinking that my 2012 overland v6, even though it has the factory hitch installed does not have any other features to aid towing? for example tow switch and ??

Are there 7 and 4 pin outlets to the left of the hitch receiver?

You should also be pre-wired for the installation of an electric brake controller. Once it's installed, you have all the basic vehicle equipment needed with which to tow. Most RV dealers can supply nd hook up the controller.

If you are going to tow, research the towing capacity of the vehicle and the various load capacities as a start.

Do note that your limit is 5000 lbs and over 3500 requires a WDH.
