how much can a Patriot tow?

I'm confused: the Canadian specs on the website say 1,000 lbs without Trailer Tow Prep Group (only available for North Edition or Altitude Automatic or CVT transmission, at least here in the Big White), but the South African specs on their website say 1,500 kg (i.e. >3,000 lbs) for manual transmission.

I cannot imagine that the Jeeps in South Africa are manufactured to a different standard for that market than the ones in North America?

they are not, but government regulations and requirements are different.

But 2000 lbs if you have the engine oil cooler is the safe bet. since that seems to be the big standard.
