Kia Sorento EX vs Jeep Liberty Sport

I'm looking at 2 possible vehicles to tow and need some help with facts:
1. 2004 Kia Sorento, EX, 2 wheel drive, automatic transmission and factory "tow hooks" on the front of the vehicle.

2. 2006 Jeep Liberty Sport, 6 speed manual transmission, no tow points in front.
Can the Sorento be towed 4 wheels down? Are there accessories for the factory "tow hooks" that would allow them to be used with a tow bar?

I figure the Jeep will have to have a base plate but can it be towed "as is" with the manual transmission?

I hope someone out there has had actual experience with one or both of these vehicles. The Remco guide is no help; doesn't even list the Kia 2 wheel drive. Thanks for any facts you can pass on. I'm new to towing.

I don't believe that the Kia can be towed 4 down. The Jeep can be towed 4 down with the transfer case in neutral and transmission in gear. This is assuming that it is 4 wheel drive. The tow hooks are inconsequential, as they are useless for recreational towing.
