What is the Towing Capacity of a Jeep Cherokee?

The 2019 Jeep Cherokee is the best SUV for towing, due to having plenty of customization options. 

No matter which configuration you go for, you'll be able to tow up to 2,000 pounds.

This is enough to take a small aluminum boat to Tobyhanna Lake or carry home materials for your next DIY project on a lightly loaded utility trailer.

If you want to get down and dirty with your snowmobiles or ATVs, opt for a Cherokee that's equipped with the 3.2L Pentastar® V6 engine. This option, available at every trim level, generates 271 horsepower and 239 lb-ft of torque. 

More importantly, it can provide a maximum towing capacity of 4,500 pounds when properly equipped.

Trailer Tow Group

To get the most out of your 2019 Jeep Cherokee towing capacity, add on the available Trailer Tow Group. This upgrade package provides all the features you need to make towing easier. It includes:

  • full-size spare tire, so you're not stranded in the event of a flat

  • Heavy-duty engine cooling to vent excess heat when your engine is under stress

  • An auxiliary transmission oil cooler to maintain optimal performance under heavy loads

  • trailer tow wiring harness, plus a 7- and 4-pin wiring harness

  • Class III receiver hitch attached to the vehicle frame

  • Available 3.517:1 final drive ratio for better torque at low speeds

Additional Tow-Friendly Features

Trailer Sway Control comes standard on every 2019 Jeep Cherokee. This safety feature uses the vehicle's Electronic Stability Control (ESC) sensors to help you stay in control of your trailer at all times.

If the trailer begins to sway, the Trailer Sway Control can gently apply brake pressure and reduce engine throttle to slow you down. Plus, the ESC dashboard light will flash, alerting you that you need to slow down and adjust your driving behavior.
