Yup, all last summer towing a 21 ft. Four Winns boat, tows like a dream with the 8 speed and rear load leveling shocks! Dave

I have a 2012 V6 and tow a Ski Nautique all the time with it. At around 3200lbs, you know it's there, but it tows just fine.

I'm about to pick up a 2014 Overland V8, so it will be interesting to compare (V6 to V8, 5 speed to 8 speed); I expect it will be somewhat better...

Re: Question for Those with the Towing Package: Does the Receiver Come With It?

Did you guys have to do anything special with the quadra lift when you towed? I'm towing a trailer and motorcyle from Detroit to Chicago on Friday.

Nope. Quite the opposite...QL does its thing for leveling the JGC, etc., normally. Be sure you are in "normal" mode before you hook up and tow.

Didn't need to carve anything, ball with 4" drop fits nicely in vacant space.
