How Much Can a Jeep Wrangler Tow?

April 30th, 2019 by

When equipped with the right accessories and configured with the Trailer Tow Group, the 2019 Jeep Wrangler reaches a maximum towing capacity of 3,500 pounds. Whether you’re transporting ATVs for an off-road adventure near Blackfoot or you’re helping a friend with a small DIY project, the Wrangler towing capacity will exceed your expectations. Learn more about the new Jeep Wrangler’s towing abilities and more with Ron Sayer's Chrysler Jeep Dodge, below.

Jeep Wrangler Towing Capacity

If you opt for a two-door Jeep Wrangler, your towing capacity will sit comfortably at 2,000 pounds. It is only when you choose a four-door Wrangler Unlimited that your towing capacity range increases to 2,000 – 3,500 pounds, depending on the configuration you choose. Your choice of Jeep 4×4 system may also affect your towing abilities:

  • Command-Trac® Part-Time 4WD
  • 4:1 Rock-Trac® HD Part Time 4WD
  • Selec-Trac® Full Time 4WD

If you have questions about which 4×4 system you should choose based on your driving habits and towing needs, reach out to an associate at Ron Sayer's Chrysler Jeep Dodge. We’ll be happy to help you settle on the right configuration.

Jeep Wrangler Towing Features

Between the Trailer Tow and Heavy-Duty Electrical Group, there are several features that make the Jeep Wrangler towing capabilities possible:

  • Programmable Aux Switches
  • 700-Amp Maintenance Free Battery
  • 240-Amp Alternator
  • Seven and Four-Pin Wiring Harness
  • Class II Tow Receiver Hitch

With these two groups, you’ll gain the ability to add a winch and control light bars to your Wrangler for a safer towing experience. The extra powerful battery and alternator allow for additional accessories of your choice.

Capable Build

When you’re tearing up the trails near Pocatello or towing through Rexburg, a rugged construction is essential. The Jeep Wrangler is built with steel bumpers for an added layer of protection, while heavy-duty Dana® 44 axles deliver a balanced power distribution. If you come across someone who is stuck between a rock and a hard place on the trail, you’ll be able to pull them out with the Wrangler tow hooks.
