2013 Towing question

Hi fellow Compass owners. I recently bought my wife a 2013 Jeep Compass Sport. It has the 2.0L with automatic tranny. ODO has 23,000 miles. We plan to pull a small mini-camper with it (small teardrop style). The camper weighs 680lbs unloaded. Our first trip will be a long trip down to FL via I95. My question is...given we will be going around 75mph on the interstate can the Compass tranny handle pulling our camper in overdrive or is it best to pull it in 4th gear?

Garage
your tow capacity is 1,000 lbs without an engine cooler, so just keep that in mind. a 2.0 FWD may be maxed out with a trailer of that weight, these things aren't very strong.
