2021 Jeep Cherokee towing a boat

The 2021 Jeep Cherokee towing capacity reaches as high as 4,500 pounds, and that means you can easily tow a small teardrop camper, a fishing boat, a travel trailer, or even a light flatbed! You can reach this maximum by choosing the range-topping 3.2L V6 engine and pairing your selection with the Trailer-Tow Group Package. No matter which configuration you settle on, the Cherokee payload limit will top out at 1,000 pounds.
