Jeep Towing Guide 

Is a Jeep Capable of Towing?

If you are searching for the perfect Jeep for your daily drives or upcoming adventures, odds are that you want to compare different Jeep models before you buy. An important factor to consider when choosing your next ride is towing capacity. If you plan to use your Jeep for your everyday commute or trips through the city, towing may not be a huge priority for you. For some, owning a vehicle that can tow thousands of pounds is a necessity to get through the workday or the next adventure. Due to the wide variety of Jeeps on the market, finding one to fit your specific needs is simple. Once you've picked out your perfect Jeep, come by Victory Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM of Ottawa in Ottawa, KS, near Kansas City.

Jeep Gladiator

The Jeep Gladiator is the perfect ride for Jeep fans who need the rugged capability of a pickup truck. Every inch of the new Gladiator was designed with durability and strength in mind. One of the factors that makes the Gladiator stand out is its best-in-class gas towing and its best-in-class 4x4 payload. Towing your equipment, camper, or boat is a breeze with the Gladiator because it can tow up to 7,650 pounds. As for payload, it can carry up to 1,700 pounds. This extremely capable Jeep is powered by the 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine that brings 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.

How Much Can Other Jeep Models Tow?

The new Gladiator isn't the only tough and capable Jeep on the market. The Jeep SUV that has the greatest towing capacity is the Jeep Grand Cherokee. It can tow up to 7,200 pounds when properly equipped, which is almost as much as the Jeep Gladiator. The available 5.7L HEMI V8 engine with 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque is what gives the Grand Cherokee this much towing power. It also has red tow hooks that enhance both the Grand Cherokee's style and capability. Next, we have the Jeep Cherokee that has a towing capacity of 4,500 pounds. After the Cherokee is the Jeep Wrangler with a max towing capacity of 3,500 pounds. The Jeep Renegade and the Jeep Compass offer the same towing capacity. They can both tow up to 2,000 pounds.

Ways to Enhance Your Jeep's Towing

To make towing less of a challenge, you can add accessories, systems, or tech to your Jeep. For example, Integrated Trailer Brake Controller allows you to adjust your trailer's braking power to give you more control. ParkView Rear Back Up Camera with dynamic wheel gridlines can make backing up your trailer quick and easy. Another available addition includes front and rear heavy-duty tow hooks that will help you get out of tough situations. These are only a few of the available systems that you can add to enhance your Jeep's towing.
