Can you flat tow a 2011 Jeep Liberty?

My wife wants one of those and not a Wrangler.

A 4 wheel drive Jeep appears to be flat towable, a 2 wheel drive does not. Go to this link and you can download a manual for the 2011 Jeep Liberty or other Jeep models.

It depends on the model of Liberty. The 4X4 automatic and the 5 speed manual can be towed as it comes from the factory. The 2WD automatic requires a transmission lube pump (see Home | Remco Towing).

The AWD automatic and the 6-speed manual can only be towed on a trailer.

I have always found the Dinghy Towing Guide to be a valuable resource.
