2020 Jeep Wrangler Towing Capacity

2020 Jeep Wrangler on a dirt road
Jeep has a truly wonderful SUV in the Wrangler, and the 2020 Jeep Wrangler‘s towing capacity is a perfect addition to an already great vehicle. How much can a Jeep Wrangler tow, though? With the 2,000 or 3,500 pounds of Jeep Wrangler towing capacity, you’ve got more than enough to get small items through San Diego or wherever you’re headed this weekend.

How Much Can the 2020 Jeep Wrangler Tow?

The 2020 Jeep Wrangler comes with a possible 3,500 pounds of towing capacity, but there are some caveats in mind, such as the variations by trim level. You should know that all 2-door Jeep Wrangler models can tow up to 2,000 pounds while the 4-door models can handle a beefier 3,500 pounds.

Most trim levels are available in both 2-door and 4-door configurations, but the Sport Altitude, Sahara, and Sahara Altitude trim packages are only available in the 4-door configurations, meaning you always get 3,500 pounds of towing capacity on these trims.

2020 Wrangler 4X4 Systems


There are multiple Jeep Wrangler 4X4 systems for your Carlsbad driving pleasure, but only one is most optimal for towing. Here are the 4X4 systems and their basic features:

  • Selec-Trac® 4×4 switches from two-wheel drive on clearer roads to 4X4 in cases of snow, rain, ice, or mud.
  • Rock-Trac® 4×4 has a 4:1 low gear ratio, Tru-Lok® electronic-locking differentials, and electronic front sway bar disconnect to make your off-road performance its absolute best.
  • Command-Trac® 4×4 is best for towing because it has a neutral setting when you tow on flat surfaces. In addition, it has a 2.72:1 low gear ratio when you want to drive over rough terrain.

2020 Wrangler Towing Features

One thing that sets Jeep models apart from the competition is the standard front and rear heavy-duty tow hooks, giving you great flexibility to tow or be towed. If you want a little extra, you should go for the Trailer Tow and Heavy-Duty Electrical Group, an add-on package that includes these great features:

  • Winch and Control Light Bars
  • Programmable Aux Switches
  • 700-Amp Maintenance-Free Battery
  • 240-Amp Alternator
  • Seven and Four-Pin Wiring Harness
  • Class II Tow Receiver Hitch
