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. The Cherokee payload capacity isn’t too shabby, either. Let’s break out these capacities by engine and equipment.
