Jeep Towing Capacity
When people think of towing, they normally think about pickup trucks. The truth is—sport utility vehicles are rated for towing and hauling, and can deliver outstanding performance depending on the individual vehicle.
Jeep is known for its history of hard-performing, off-road, intense vehicles, and there are currently six in the lineup, each with its own ratings and performance. If you’re in Sodus, Wayne County, or Ontario and are interested in how your new Jeep will perform, read the statistics and performance factors that go into determining the Jeep towing capacity for various vehicles. If you have any questions, make sure to reach out to Peake Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram FIAT today.
The Jeep Compass is a Class I light-duty SUV with an available trailer tow package on certain trim levels. When powered by the available 2.4L Tigershark® engine, the Jeep Compass towing capacity is up to 2,000 pounds. This is due to the engine’s MultiAir® technology, which maximizes performance, allowing the vehicle to gain more power.
The Jeep Cherokee is one of Jeep brand’s better-known vehicles. Just about every trim level at its basic package is rated for towing 2,000 pounds both with front- and 4-wheel drive. However, when 4×4 is paired with the 2.4L I4 MultiAir® engine option and is properly equipped, towing capability increases to a maximum of 4,500 pounds.
Jeep Grand Cherokee
The Jeep Grand Cherokee is one of the larger SUVs of Jeep brand’s powerhouse performers. The basic maximum towing rating with the Trailer Tow Group is 6,200 pounds at the 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine. However, that can be increased up to 7,200 pounds with the 5.7L V8, 6.2L V8, or the Supercharged 6.4L V8 engine options.
With the Jeep Renegade, using the base 1.3L Turbo engine, towing is not recommended by the manufacturer. Stepping up to the 2.4L Tigershark engine, however, nets you 180 horsepower and there are available towing packages, which will give you up to 2,000 pounds of towing capacity.
The Jeep Wrangler is the classic Jeep—the original model that has been in service since soldiers in WWII counted on it for heavy work. It offers some of the best standard towing among all Jeep models. Standardly this model can tow up to 2,000 pounds when properly equipped. But with the right configuration, that can be increased to an impressive 3,500 pounds.
When a Jeep mixes with a truck, you know you’re going to have some power under your belt. When the Jeep Gladiator is properly equipped, this midsize truck can haul a massive amount. It offers a best-in-class towing capacity of 7,650 pounds. Additionally, you’ll also receive a payload maxing out at 1,600 pounds.
