When we talk about off-road capability, we inevitably think of Jeep SUVs. But which of Jeep’s SUVs and pickup trucks has the towing capacity to suit your wildest needs?

Jeep Towing Capacity

With more than 80 years of expertise in the field, Jeep has distinguished itself by integrating the best technologies in its vehicles. Indeed, the manufacturer is equipped with the best 4×4 systems: Rock-Trac, Command-Trac, Selec-Trac, Quadra-Drive, Quadra-Trac, Active-Drive and Active Drive-Lock.

However, their capacities may not be sufficient to climb steep slopes, climb obstacle-laden roads or be launched into mud. Your Jeep dealer in Laval has put together a guide to the Jeep towing capabilities of each model.
