Our team here at Thompson Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram (CJDR) of Harford County has some good news to share with drivers around Aberdeen, Edgewood, and Bel Air, Maryland: The 2020 Jeep Wrangler is capable of towing up to 3,500 pounds.

To learn more about this number and what makes it possible, just read on!

Jeep Wrangler's 3,500-Pound Towing Capacity

As we mentioned, the 2020 Jeep Wrangler compact SUV enables you to tow up to 3,500 pounds when properly equipped. However, if you don't need those full capabilities, you could opt for one of its trim levels-like the 2020 Jeep Wrangler Sport-that maxes out at 2,000 pounds.

Either one of these capacities will allow you to handle a whole lot, such as:

  • Small utility trailers
  • Pop-up tent trailers
  • Lightweight aluminum boats
  • Other personal watercrafts

Plus, if you're driving a model that's capable of achieving its full towing capacity, that list expands to include small outboard boats, tent trailers, a couple of ATVs, and even the smallest Airstream trailers.

So, as you can see, you'd be able to pursue plenty of adventures around Edgewood, Bel Air, and Aberdeen.

Last, but certainly not least, we'll cover the vehicle's three different available 4x4 systems below. Keep on reading!

Jeep Wrangler 4x4 Systems

Wrangler Selec-Trac® 4x4 System. The first is the Selec-Trac® 4x4 System, which is available on the Sahara trim. When you're on the well-paved road, it sticks with two-wheel drive. When you transition to snow, ice, rain, mud, or other hazardous conditions, it intelligently engages four-wheel drive so that your traction stays superb.

Wrangler Command-Trac® 4x4 System. Then, there's the Command-Trac® 4x4 System, which can also deliver torque to all four wheels. In addition, it relies upon a 2.72:1 low range during your rock-crawling adventures.

Wrangler Rock-Trac® 4x4 System. Finally, speaking of rock-crawling adventures, the available Rock-Trac® 4x4 System can take everything up a notch with its 4:1 low gear ratio, a Tru-Lok® electronic locking front and rear differential, and an electronic front sway bar disconnect. The result? Nearly unparalleled control.

Which system would be ideal for your lifestyle? Our teammates can help you make a decision.
