RE: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee

We also have a 2016 GC Overland High Altitude, and installed the Blue Ox baseplate to go with our Aventa towbar, which we've used for 8 years now (actually on our second one, sold the old one to a friend). The installation is relatively easy, except for the careful trimming of the front fascia for the towbar sockets and electrical connector. We did it at home, with experienced help. Love the Jeep, and I'm very happy with the way the baseplate install went. Very easy connect/disconnect, and problem-free towing.

RE: Flat towing vehicles

OP, I'm curious as to why you dismiss all Jeeps with a "been there, done that." We replaced our 2008 Jeep Liberty toad (after 110k or so miles) with a 2014 Honda CR-V. The Jeep was a dream to tow, but as a near-daily driver, I hated the lousy mileage (15-20 mpg). The CR-V was fine, but more work to tow than the Jeep, and a bit small for our tastes. After 2 years, we sold the CR-V to an RV-ing neighbor, and upgraded to a 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee. We couldn't be happier with it -- very easy to hook up and tow, lots of room, full 4WD capability, and WAY better mileage than the Liberty ever got (we're seeing 26 mpg on the highway). This wouldn't be everybody's choice, I know, and it's about 1000 lbs. heavier than the CR-V. But Jeeps have continued to evolve, and they cover a wide range of models. You might want to give them another look.
