I purchased a 2011 Crew V6 awd w/o towing package based on the fact that I couldn't find one with the tow package AND that I only need to tow 5000lbs occasionally. So I went on the dodge site and "built my own" and saw that standard towing for that model is 5000 lbs w/o tow package. Great! I went out and found one locally and grabbed it only to find that in the owners manual it states max towing w/o tow package is 3500 Lbs!!. I called my dealer and they didn't know so they contacted the Dodge tech rep and he said max towing is 3800 w/o tow package but with the OEM hitch. Ouch! I called Dodge and opened a case file to get to the bottom of this. They also saw that their manual states 3500 but the website states 5000. Beware that if you want to tow anything over 3500 you had better get the factory package. Of course the manual may be wrong and I'm waiting now for further word from the tech experts at Dodge.
