2021 Jeep Wrangler off-roading
How much can a Jeep Wrangler tow, and is it enough to handle your RV trailer or boat?

The Wrangler towing capacity ranges from 2,000 pounds or at 3,500 pounds, depending on the configuration you choose.

2021 Jeep Wrangler Towing Capacity

The Wrangler towing capacity will vary depending on your configuration — i.e. your chosen trim level, drivetrain, and engine. So how much can a Jeep Wrangler tow at each trim level? Here are a few points to keep in mind as you configure your Wrangler: 

  • For 2-door models, the Wrangler towing capacity maxes out at 2,000 pounds. 4-door Wrangler models can tow as much as 3,500 pounds.
  • Most trim levels can be had in either a 2-door or 4-door configuration. The exceptions are the Sahara, and High Altitude, which only come as 4-door models. If you choose one of these trims, you can be sure of a 3,500-pound Wrangler towing capacity.
  • The Wrangler lineup gains several exciting new exterior paint colors for 2021, and most of the 2020 Jeep Wrangler configurations are back for the new model year.

How Much Can a Jeep Wrangler Tow with Each 4×4 System?

  • Selec-Trac® 4×4 stays in two-wheel drive when road conditions are good, helping to conserve fuel. When you encounter snow, rain, ice, or mud, the system automatically switches to 4×4.
  • Rock-Trac® 4×4 optimizes off-road performance with a 4:1 low gear ratio, Tru-Lok® electronic-locking differentials, and electronic front sway bar disconnect.
  • Command-Trac® 4×4 offers a neutral option for better towing on flat surfaces and a 2.72:1 low gear ratio for when the trail gets tough. As you might expect, Command-Trac® is best for towing
