Tow Group on 2014 Summit

I'm having trouble confirming if the tow group comes as standard equipment on the 2014 Summit. The order guides don't list it as an option for the Overland or Summit and in previous years I believe it's been standard on those trim levels, so I assume it is standard on 2014. Can anyone confirm if it is? I'm planning on ordering a Canadian spec model with the V8, not sure if it would matter for this, but thought I'd clarify.

One of the reasons I am curious is this 2014: Cincinnati, OH 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit New SUV Dayton, OH Florence, KY Jeff Wyler Eastgate Auto Mall does not appear to have the tow group.

Thanks for the help.

PS: For anyone planning on ordering a White summit, those are some of the best pics I've found.

Towing is Standard on Overland and Summit according to Post #1 in the Ordering Thread.

Re: Tow Group on 2014 Summit

Thanks for the quick reply and checking on this. I sure hope it is standard as it isn't listed as an option for the Summit, would seem odd if the Overland got it, but not the summit, but the pictures don't seem to show it.

It is hidden on the Summit I believe. There are some Detroit Auto Show pics that show this..JeeperJohn was there

Re: Tow Group on 2014 Summit

Looks like the center portion of the rear bumper cover can be removed, is it likely this needs to be removed to expose the hitch? If so, I wonder how it will look with that panel removed as it's not likely I'd remember or want to replace that panel everytime.

Re: Tow Group on 2014 Summit

Yes, that would be the panel you need to remove. Would look like any of the other rear bumpers, just the exhaust pipes are different.
