just to keep folks from getting confused: according to the '16 owner's manual, the limit is 3500 for the V6 without factory tow package

Dealerships commonly make many mistakes on their ads. I've seen it all. Cummins diesel engines in Ford half ton trucks, 4WD Mustangs, automatic transmissions in cars with clutch pedals, etc., etc., etc.....

Here is the official towing page for the GC from the official Jeep Page. I just purchased my GC Limited with the 3.6 and tow package and it says it will tow 6200 pounds. Edit-you have to click on the GC--looks like it gives all Jeep capabilities.
