Logically Tow N Go should include the items in the trailer tow group. However the order guide shows both packages as optional on the R/T with no mention of Tow N Go including the Trailer-tow Group IV items.I will have to call dodge in morning to find out if I need to add the trailer tow group with it as it wasnt clear on it. You would think the tow N Go would have it and trailer group was if you didnt want tow n go but when I find out will let you know
Thanks for following up. I have to say that is one perplexing decision on Dodge's part. They offer a towing focused package but leave out some of the most basic components. I'd rather pay 6 grand with it all included then to buy a package that then requires me to buy a package. It's just silly. Who in their right mind would buy the Tow N Go package without the trailer tow group? The other way around I could easily see people doing.Just talked to Dodge you have to order the trailer group package as well, so will be adding it to my order. * change * when my dealer looked at my order Class IV hitch was already on order
OK so if you get Tow N Go no further towing options are needed (as it should be.) However if you don't get Tow N Go the trailer tow group is needed to be able to tow at all. Sound right?So my order was accepted and got the vin and full print out. It had the Class IV hitch and pin in the tow n go package so Im good to go
Yep, Tahoe has more load carry ability for tongue weight & payload. 400 lbs higher GVWR and rear GAWR than DurangoI used to think that but the new Tahoe is a big improvement. The towing features are critical to me, they seem fairly evenly matched. However the Tahoe is based on the Silverado truck chassis which makes me wonder if it is the better tow vehicle.
No, Durango is still unibody, not body on frame like Ram.Not sure if I like the front end of the Tahoe. I would have to research but isnt this durango built on Ram Chassis so then it comes down to what feel you like better
I can't completely answer the question, but Payload will vary by vehicle based on factory (and I believe Dealer) installed options. I'm not sure what curb weight is referring to: base model w/ no options? FWIW, my Payload sticker stating 1280# appears reasonable for my 2011 loaded AWD Crew w/ 5.7L and tow package. I've never weighted my D empty with a tank of gas, I weighed ready to go camping without TT hooked up. Unfortunately the weight tickets are in the camper.Thank you. That brings up the question of why Dodge reports these numbers so grossly inaccurate?
Thank you for this info. I looked up the front and rear GAWR for the Durango R/T and the Tahoe, this is what I found:Yep, Tahoe has more load carry ability for tongue weight & payload. 400 lbs higher GVWR and rear GAWR than Durango
GVWR is also 7,100 lbs (Durango) vs 7,500 lbs (Tahoe)Thank you for this info. I looked up the front and rear GAWR for the Durango R/T and the Tahoe, this is what I found:
What implications does this have on the trailer one could select?
TNG still has the same 7,100 GVWR as non-TNG. So there is no payload increase with TNG vs a standard 5.7I am still curious why Dodge puts such low payload rating on the door sticker of the Tow N Go. 1200lbs seems way off. I have escalated the question with Dodge customer service and they should be getting back to me in the next few days.
