2020 Wrangler Towing Capacity

As we noted above, the 2020 Wrangler towing capacity reaches its maximum capacity at 3,500 pounds. If you wish to reach this capacity, you’ll want to know more about what each trim level can deliver. As you shop for your new Wrangler, keep the following factors in mind:

  • Two-door Jeep Wrangler models are capable of towing up to 2,000 pounds, while four-door models are capable of towing up to 3,500 pounds.
  • Most of the Wrangler trims are available as both a two-door or four-door configuration, but you should note that the Sport Altitude, Sahara, and Sahara Altitude trims in particular are only available as a four-door model, meaning these trims will always be able to tow up to 3,500 pounds.

Which Jeep Wrangler 4×4 system is best-suited for towing?

  • Selec-Trac® 4×4 uses two-wheel drive when you’re moving over a clear road, but switches to 4×4 whenever you encounter snow, rain, ice, or mud.
  • Rock-Trac® 4×4 uses a 4:1 low gear ratio, Tru-Lok® electronic-locking differentials, and electronic front sway bar disconnect to deliver excellent off-road performance.
  • Command-Trac® 4×4 is the preferred option for towing because it allows you to select a neutral option for towing on flat surfaces. Of course, it also features a 2.72:1 low gear ratio for adventures that take you over rough terrain.
