I think the short wheel base is a big issue.

I traveled from Aspen to vail one winter and saw 6 cars spun out in the median.
Five were Jeeps. It was a different situation from towing but the short wheelbase was the cause. I think that the trailer would move the TV around when turning, braking, and a variety of situations. I would never WANT to tow with any SUV, other than the Suburban.

Jeeps tend to come with large tread-block tires that look like they'd be great in the snow, but fail miserably on the ice... add in the 'wider than they are long' factor, and you've off to the cabbage patch...
