The 2020 Jeep Cherokee can tow up to 4,500 pounds, when properly equipped. However, if you are looking to tow something behind your Cherokee, you must be aware of the varying levels of capability between trim levels.

The 2020 Jeep Cherokee comes available in 3 different engine types, which means varying levels of towing capability. Also, if you are looking to tow more than the standard towing capacity of 2,000 pounds, you’ll need to make sure your Cherokee comes equipped with the available Trailer-Tow Group. Additionally, this option group is only available on the 3.2L Pentastar V6 engine, which is only available on certain trim levels.

Confused yet? We’ll clear things up for you! If you scroll below, you’ll see the standard towing capacity on each engine type is 2,000 pounds. If you need more towing capacity, you must upgrade Pentastar V6 Engine and opt for the Trailer-Tow Group. See below.
