So far, has anybody been able to confirm whether or not the transfer case on this model has a neutral position?

From what I've read, admittedly all of it on Allpar, it doesn't have a traditional transfer case because it's a principally-FWD vehicle.

This is a guess, but I would imagine that the layout of the 4wd system will be more like the Patriot or like the Pacifica, probably with beefed up stuff and using ABS braking for stability control to reduce wheelspin. Again, this is just a guess.

According to the diagrams and interpretations, it will have some sort of gear reduction, but no neutral and it's NOT a transfer case, Jeep calls it a PTO.

Norm is correct, not a traditional transfer case but a PTO from the 9spd transmission. Includes Rear Axle Disconnect for free-wheeling on all 4x4 models (from what I've read)

Jeep is now calling it a PTU, power transfer unit.

I, too, am interested in the neutral position tranfer case. I would like to tow this vehicle 4WD automatic as a dingy 4-wheels down behind my motorhome. Any thoughts about this?
