Jeep Cherokee Towing Capacity & Performance

Move with confidence knowing the Jeep Cherokee can take on the hard road ahead. Offering three distinct engines, you can design a ride that suits your individual style:

Engine Type

Horsepower / Torque

Towing Capacity

3.2L Pentastar® V6

271 HP / 239 lb-ft

4,500 pounds

2.4L MultiAir® 2 I-4

180 HP / 171 lb-ft

2,000 pounds

2.0L Turbo I-4

270 HP / 295 lb-ft

2,000 pounds

Each engine uses a 9-speed AutoStick® automatic transmission, which delivers quick acceleration and smooth shifting even while carrying heavy loads. So, whether hauling a small trailer across town or towing the family camper over a mountain, you only feel unshakeable confidence.

4x4 Technology

The Jeep Cherokee is for drivers who like to forge their own path. That's why it provides not one, but three different 4x4 systems to match your get-up-and-go attitude. You'll also find each trim comes with a disconnecting rear axle, allowing you to switch in-and-out of 4-wheel drive to preserve efficiency.

For all-weather commuting, the Jeep Active Drive I uses special brake traction control for balanced torque distribution for each tire. This keeps you on track and deters slippage when traveling over snowy roads.

When the time comes to venture off the beaten path, Jeep Active Drive II is ready. Including 4WD Low Mode, it helps you power out of sticky situations or when towing heavy loads.

For serious trail-busting capability, the Trail Rated® Jeep Active Drive Lock uses a locking rear differential to make light work out of some boulder climbing creek forging.

Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System

To enhance your stability, this special system pairs with your Jeep Cherokee model's 4WD, allowing you to adapt to changing conditions.

Its selectable dial features four settings, including: Auto, Snow, Sand/Mud, and Sport. Those who choose the Trailhawk® trim also receive a special Rock mode feature.

Jeep Selec-Terrain® also synchronizes with 12 different vehicle systems. From the transmission to the built-in Electronic Stability Control, this intuitive system creates a harmonious drive.

Active Safety Technology

Above all, the Jeep Cherokee puts the safety of you and your things at the top of its list. That's why, apart from its rough and ready design, drivers will enjoy up to 80+ safety features including:

  • Trailer Sway Control
  • ParkView® rear back-up camera
  • Side Distance Warning
  • Rain Brake Support
