2021 Jeep Wrangler Towing Capacity

The 2021 Jeep Wrangler offers four engines to let you specialize in anything from track-like agility to power necessary for heading down off-road trails outside Louisville. Each one is equally matched when it comes to towing power, but here’s how towing breaks down by configuration:

  • Up to 2,000 lbs. with Jeep Wrangler 2-door models
  • Up to 3,500 lbs. with Jeep Wrangler 4-door models

Most trims are available as either 2-door or 4-door, but the following are only offered in 4-door configurations:

  • Sport Altitude
  • RHD
  • Sahara
  • Sahara Altitude
  • High Altitude

That means each one can always tow up to 3,500 lbs.

2021 Jeep Wrangler 4×4 Systems

Most SUVs that are currently seen across Lexington only offer available all-wheel drive, but the Jeep Wrangler prioritizes capability with the following 4×4 options:

  • Selec-Trac® 4×4: Switches from standard two-wheel drive on clear roads to 4×4 when you hit snow, rain, ice, or mud.
  • Rock-Trac® 4×4: Utilizes a 4:1 low gear ratio, electronic front sway bar, and Tru-Lok® electronic-locking differentials for outstanding off-road performance and towing.
  • Command-Trac® 4×4: Ideal for towing, the Command-Trac® system lets you select a neutral mode for towing on flat surfaces.
