Jeep Compass towable?

Looks like the Compass 4x4 with 2sp transfer case and manual trans. can be towed 4 down. Just looking for info. Really hoping my 2007 Liberty with 64,000 miles keeps going for several more years. Thanks, Dave

Keep this web site handy , input the vehicle info , and you'll get the flat towing , dolly , or no towing info.
Until you have the vehicles owners manual in hand , it's the best source.

General rule is that 4x4 transfer case must have a true neutral position to be towable 4-down.....

According to the Motorhome Magazine Dinghy Tow Guides, the manual tranny Compass is towable in either 2WD or 4WD. The automatics are not, regardless.

Ditto for the Patriot, if that model rings your chimes.

If you want an automatic that is towable, choose the Cherokee or Wrangler 4WD, or the larger Grand Cherokee. However, not all transfer case and tranny combos are towable, so check carefully on those models.

You can go to the following site and download Jeep manuals going back to 2004. Check the instructions under Recreational Towing Behind a Motorhome.

Thanks, Bob - page 442 recreational towing for 2016 model compass - flat tow 4 wheels down - manual trans only - trans in neutral and key in acc position. 4x4 only and didn't see anything about transfer case. Looks like unless 07 Liberty gets totaled I'll probably not be interested in anymore Jeep's. Dave
