The 2020 Jeep Gladiator can tow up to 7,650 pounds, when properly equipped. However, if you are looking to tow something behind your Gladiator, you must be aware of the varying difference between trim levels as well as whether or not your vehicle is equipped 4.1 Rear Axle Ratio and the optional towing package.

 

The 2020 Jeep Gladiator comes equipped with the same 3.6L V6 Pentastar Engine across all trim levels. We are still waiting for the highly anticipated Eco-Diesel which is expected to be available on 2021 models. Despite the same engine across all trims, maximum towing capacity can vary significantly depending on transmission type (manual or automatic) and whether you have the optional Trailer-Tow Package. See below.

8-Speed Automatic Transmission: 4,500 pounds

8-Speed Automatic Transmission w/ Trailer-Tow Package: 6,000 pounds

8-Speed Automatic Transmission: 6,000 pounds

 

Jeep Gladiator Rubicon

6-Speed Manual Transmission: 4,500 pounds

8-Speed Automatic Transmission: 7,000 pounds

 

As you can see, the towing capability can vary widely between trim levels due to a number of factors. With the 6-speed manual transmission (standard on all trim levels), the Gladiator tows up to 4,000 pounds except for the Rubicon which reaches 4,500 pounds. This difference is due to the 4.1 Rear Axle Ratio that comes standard on the Rubicon trim.

The 8-speed automatic transmission will allow you to tow more regardless of trim level, however you must be aware of other factors. The trim level, rear axle ratio and whether or not you opt for the Trailer-Tow Package can make the difference between a 4,500 pound tow capacity and 7,650 pounds – a big difference if you plan to be towing large equipment like a boat or trailer.
