2021 Jeep Cherokee towing a boat

 

If you’re like a lot of our The Dalles customers, you need a vehicle that works as hard as you do. Maybe you like to take your boat or camper out on the weekends, or you need a tough vehicle that can pull your work trailer around. We get it. So does Jeep. That’s why the maximum 2021 Jeep Cherokee towing capacity is a massive 4,500 pounds when properly equipped. That’s enough to pull that camper or small boat wherever you want to go.
