Jeep Wrangler Towing Capacity

We know now that the 2021 Jeep Wrangler has a towing capacity of up to 3,500 pounds. However, to reach that maximum, Scotts Valley drivers need to know what each trim level can offer. Keep these facts in mind:

  • All 4-door models can reach the maximum 3,500, while all 2-door Jeep Wrangler models can tow up to 2,000 pounds.
  • Most Jeep trim levels come in either 2-door or 4-door configurations, but the Sport Altitude, Sahara, and Sahara Altitude are the trims only offered as 4-door SUVs. The benefit of this is that these trims are always able to tow up to 3,500 pounds of heavy cargo.
  • Find the same great configurations that were featured in the 2020 Jeep Wrangler with the addition of new eye-catching colors in the 2021 Wrangler.

Jeep Wrangler 4×4 Drive Systems

  • Selec-Trac® 4×4: This intuitive system uses two-wheel drive when driving on clear roads but switches to 4×4 whenever driving in inclement weather like snow, rain, ice, or mud.
  • Rock-Trac® 4×4: This system delivers excellent off-road performance by using a 4:1 low gear ratio, Tru-Lok® electronic-locking differentials, and electronic front sway bar disconnect.
  • Command-Trac® 4×4: Those wanting to get the most out of their towing should use this preferred option. It features a 2.72:1 low gear ratio for those looking for adventure over rough terrain, but it also allows drivers to select a neutral option for towing on flat surfaces.
