    Can you explain why the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee limited X 4×2 cannot have a factory tow package installed without the 4×4 option? But the limited model can have a tow package with the 4×2 model.

    Thanks for educating people about towing with the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Too often people neglect the towing capacity of their vehicle. And unfortunately for them when there is an engine malfunction they have to call a towing company to tow their car to the next garage.
