2019 Jeep Wrangler Towing

The Jeep Wrangler has a long reputation for being one of the most capable and versatile off-roading vehicles, complete with removable doors and bold color options, but you may be wondering, “how much can a Jeep Wrangler tow?” Properly equipped, the Jeep Wrangler towing capacity is 3,500 pounds. Additionally, it has a payload capacity of 1,090 to 1,361 pounds. Read on to learn more about the new Wrangler and its towing capabilities, 4×4 systems, and sturdy build.

4×4 Systems for the New Jeep Wrangler

You’re probably already aware that the Jeep Wrangler uses seriously advanced 4×4 systems to tackle mud, gravel, rock, snow, etc. Here’s a closer look at each system’s specs:

  • Selec-Trac® — alternates between 2WD to 4WD to suit different driving conditions.
  • Command-Trac® — includes a 2.72:1 low range for rocky terrain and neutral for towing on flat surfaces.
  • Rock-Trac® — is standard on the Rubicon and uses an NV241 off-road transfer case with a 4:1 low gear ratio.

For even better off-road capabilities, consider a lifted Jeep Wrangler. You’ll get higher clearance, softer landings, and much more!

What Does Trail Rated® Mean?

You may be wondering, “what does Trail Rated® mean?” Jeep models with 4×4 systems are Trail Rated®, meaning they exceed in five important categories:

  • Traction
  • Water Fording
  • Maneuverability
  • Articulation
  • Ground Clearance

Trail Rated® goes beyond tow ratings. When you choose a Jeep utility vehicle sporting this badge, you can expect exceptional performance whether you’re off-roading around San Leandro or simply running errands.
