Read our guide below to learn about the features that set the Wrangler towing capacity apart from the crowd!


2020 Jeep Wrangler Towing Capacity

No matter which trim you select for your Wrangler, towing capacity remains a strength for this compact SUV. As noted above, the 4-door Unlimited can tow 3,500 pounds and all 2-door Wranglers can tow at least 2,000. That said, some 2-door Wrangler configurations can handle even more! Keep these points in mind as your explore the capability of each Wrangler trim:

  • Most Wrangler trims are available in 2-door and 4-door configurations. 
  • The Sport Altitude, Sahara, and Sahara Altitude trims are only available as 4-door models — so you can be sure that any Wrangler Sport Altitude, Sahara, or Sahara Altitude model you buy has the max Jeep Wrangler towing capacity of 3,500 pounds!
  • For 2020, the Wrangler lineup adds the Willys and Black & Tan models.

  • Rock-Trac® 4×4 — 4:1 low gear ratio, Tru-Lok® electronic-locking differentials, and electronic front sway bar disconnect deliver excellent off-road performance.
  • Command-Trac® 4×4 — Your best choice for towing, Command-Trac® allows you to select a neutral-range option for heavy towing on flat terrain. It also has your back on unsteady surfaces and rough roads, with a 2.72:1 low gear ratio.
