MK towing capacity
I've been discussing the patriot with the wife lately and the gas mileage is very tempting to trade the Liberty for a Patriot. I want to maximize gas mileage so I am considering the 5-speed manual over the CVT2 but we will need to be able to pull up to 2000 lbs maximum with whatever we get.
Here's the question. I haven't been able to confirm or deny that the 5-speed is rated for up to 2000 lbs when properly equipped. My dealer doesn't know what I'm talking about since the Patriot is so new. I do know that the CVT2 is rated for 2000 lbs but many other Jeeps (the XJ for one) is not rated for the same tow capacity between manual trannys and automatics.
Can anyone confirm via an owners manual or other source what the Maximum rated towing capacity of the 5-speed manual is for the Patriot.
Thanks a bunch.
