Towing capacity 2012 vs 2017

I see now (unless I misread something) that the towing capacity has gone from 1000 lbs. (my 2012) to 2000 lbs. (on the 2017). Did Jeep make a change, or did they just decide that 2000 lbs. was OK?

As far as I know the 2000lb is only with the Oil Cooler installed. Do the 2017 all have the oil cooler installed from factory?

I checked Edmunds and did a side-by-side comparison of the '16 and '17, and aside from about a $400 price increase, they're identical, each with a towing capacity of 2000 lbs. It says nothing about needing an oil cooler. I guess I could check with a local Jeep dealer, but ya never know if whom your talking to knows the facts.
