Increasing tow capacity on Durango 2015 SXT
« on: March 03, 2019, 07:32:11 pm »
Hi there,
I have the following SUV
2015 Dodge Durango
MAKE: DODGE
MODEL: DURANGO
TRIM: SXT AWD
YEAR: 2015
AGE: 4
BODY: SPORT UTILITY 4-DR

....but the tow capacity is a crappy 3500lb. Something to do with Mopar hardware being used? When I leased it, the dealership put the tow assembly on as an extra. I see that the factory tow capacities are 6200lbs+.
Lease is almost up and the only thing that stops me from buying out the lease is the tow capacity.
Is it a big job getting the tow assembly up to 6200lbs?
There are Mopar elements in my Durango so not sure of my options. Maybe suspension or frame related stuff that impacts towing.
I appreciate your advice
Thanks

Interesting forum thread where people were sold tow assemblies thinking they towed 6200lbs but actually only did 3500lbs. https://www.cargurus.com/Cars/Discussion-t56855_ds635973
