Yes, I read that
295 vs 239. That IS a difference coming from a 2.0! 馃槑 Better gas mileage also...馃ズ
Ya, that Lat+ you drove would have 4000lb towing as well with the factory tow package. Does your new Trailhawk have it???馃槑

Just so we're clear on this... 2.4L can tow 2000 with or without Tow group. 3.2L can tow 4500 with Tow group, 2000 without. 2.0T can tow 4000 with Tow group, 2000 without.
So if the 2.0T has more torque and similar HP, why is it rated at 500lbs less for towing ? Good question. It's a complex algorythm. Towing capacity equation takes mutiple factors into account, we can only guess here why there is a 500lbs difference. One guess is because the 3.2L has more torque below 2000 RPM. Another is that cubic inches play a role. Turbo heat is probably another. Final drive ratio (gearing) could be another.

Yes it came with the factory tow package. Best way to go. I figured if I was buying used I might as well find one with most of the bells & whistles! 馃ぃ

That Lat+ was sooooo plushy.....馃い but I like what I bought.

Drove a 2020 Trailhawk, pretty loaded, leather, V6, towing package, cold weather package, no rental history, 17200 miles, 1 owner, no accidents of any sort. An OR/WA vehicle. No rust under from what I saw (yes I wiggled underneath). I dove it (with the sales gal) for 2 hours, yes really. By the time I was done I was pleasantly surprised. Not squirrly at all.I've never driven any Jeep & I liked the feel, the handling, luv I can tow up to 4500lbs, and the room it has. The only things I don't like is: no tint on the front windows, it's "billet silver" color, and those Firestone destination tires with the white lettering have to be the fugliest tire ever!馃ぃ Verdict? I bought it. Pick it up tomorrow. I think everyone has buyers remorse at some point in a vehicle. Unless your ultra rich and can buy EXACTLY what you want/desire, whatever. 馃槈 If I'll miss one thing, it'll be gas mileage for sure! Encore was 27-30mpg. As Mark asked, "is it worth taking the risk?" Yes, I think so.馃榿Thanks everyone!
awesome! silver is a great color, it always looks clean!
