What is the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited towing capacity?

My sister wants to buy one of those new Jeep Gladiator pickups and she’s selling her 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited as a result. I was thinking about buying it, but I want to make sure it has enough towing capacity for my outdoor excursions. How much can the 2019 Grand Cherokee Limited tow?

Jeep Gladiator
is an awesome truck, but your sister’s desire for that pickup gives you a great opportunity to buy a towing machine. The 2019
Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited
towing capacity is between 3,500 pounds and 7,200 pounds, depending on the engine.
If your sister has the Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with a 3.6-liter Penstar V-6, the Cherokee can tow 3,500 pounds or 6,200 pounds when equipped with the Trailer Tow Package.
That’s a decent amount of power. But if your sister owns the Grand Cherokee Limited with a 360-horsepower, 5.7-liter HEMI V-8, you get best-in-class towing of 7,200 pounds.
If you want to equip the Jeep Trailer Tow Package on the 3.6-liter version, you’ll get:
  • Class IV receiver hitch
  • Wiring harness
  • 180-amp alternator
  • Engine cooling system
  • Full-size spare tire
Before you hand over the cash to your sister, just remember that you need a proper car insurance policy before you can legally get behind the wheel. To make shopping around easier, let
