What is the Towing Capacity of a Jeep Grand Cherokee?

When you’re looking for the right towing power for your trips around Martins Ferry, OH in the Jeep Grand Cherokee, you’ll first need one of four powerful engines that match your driving style. What is the towing capacity of a Jeep Grand Cherokee with these engine options?

When equipped with the standard 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine, the Grand Cherokee can tow up to 6,200 pounds and highlights 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque. Yet, if you’re looking for the maximum 7,200-pound 2021 Jeep Cherokee towing capacity, pairing your drives with one of these engines will do the job:

  • 5.7L HEMI® V8: 360 horsepower, 390 lb-ft of torque
  • 6.4L HEMI® SRT V8: 475 horsepower, 470 lb-ft of torque
  • 6.2L Supercharged HEMI® V8: 707 horsepower, 645 lb-ft of torque

As you’re taking on the tough jobs around town, the 8-speed automatic transmission prevents potential lugging and provides you with optimized shifting.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Towing Features

Once you’ve got a strong Jeep engine backing you on the road, the Grand Cherokee also highlights a wide range of towing features that give you peace of mind wherever the trip takes you. Increase your visibility with the available ParkView® Rear Back-Up Camera with Trailer View that gives you a clear view of the road behind you and uses gridlines for easy hitching.

The weather around Steubenville, OH has met its match with the standard Selec-Trac with Launch Control and available Quadra-Trac® On-Demand 4-Wheel Drive (4WD) system. With the Track, Sport, Auto, Snow, and Tow settings, you can find the right performance as the situation calls for it. Selecting the Tow setting allows you to optimize your suspension and acceleration from a standstill as you’re hauling a trailer. 

The Jeep Grand Cherokee is ready to meet the challenges of the roads with features like a standard Trailer Sway Control system that keeps the trailer steady and on-track. 

Jeep Grand Cherokee Towing Packages

As you can see, the Jeep Grand Cherokee has the power to take your workweek and weekend adventures to the next level, but to reach the maximum towing capacity, you’ll need to be properly equipped with the available Trailer Tow Group IV package. Without this package the Grand Cherokee is only able to tow up to 3,500 pounds.

The Trailer Tow Group IV package rounds out your Jeep Grand Cherokee towing ability with features like engine cooling to prevent overheating, a rear load-leveling suspension that keeps you evened out when towing, and other accessories, such as: 

  • Class IV hitch receiver
  • 4- and 7-pin wiring harness
