So, How Much Weight Can the Jeep Gladiator Handle?

Jeep Gladiator Engine Power

Now, the answer you've been waiting for: the Jeep Gladiator, when fully equipped, can tow a maximum of 7,650 pounds, the best in its class and is enough to take different sized boats, trailers, RVs, and more! Additionally, the Gladiator delivers a best-in-class 4x4 1,700-pound payload. So, go ahead, load up the bikes and hit the trails!

With so much power, you may be wondering how the Gladiator does it. There are several ways, starting with its engine. Available are two different powertrains - the classic 3.6L Pentastar® engine, which produces 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, and the 3.0L EcoDiesel® V6 engine, which delivers 260 horsepower and a best-in-class 442 lb-ft of torque.

Though the latter engine only produces a maximum towing capacity of 6,500 pounds, that is still more than enough to get the job done!

Tow With Confidence

Don't have a spotter handy? The Jeep Gladiator can act as one! Using the ParkView® Rear Back Up Camera, you can take advantage of the dynamic gridlines, making connections easy in. To make life even easier, you can add the available 4X trailer hitch zoom feature.

For added peace of mind, the Jeep Gladiator is built with a high-strength steel frame, which aids in its ability to tow so much weight. Heavy-duty axles, coil front and rear suspensions, as well as the largest brakes in its class make it so even the bumpiest of rides feel smooth and let you brake on time every time.

Stay Out of Danger With Intuitive Safety Technology

While you're making your way to your destination with your cargo in tow (bad pun, we know), there are tons of dangerous situations that can arise out of nowhere. The Jeep Gladiator is here to keep you and your items protected with advanced safety features.

Carrying extra weight puts extra pressure on your tires to perform, so you'll want to make sure they're at the proper PSI. If they dip below that, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System will warn you on your dash, so you'll know which ones you need to address.

Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking is a great way to avoid collisions, especially if you're unable to act in time. If the vehicle sense that an impact is imminent, it'll automatically apply the brakes in hopes of preventing any incident.

Gone are the days of looking over your shoulder to see if something is in your blind spots. With Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path Detection, sensors can locate other vehicles you wouldn't normally be able to see, allowing you to confidently change lanes and/or back out of parking spaces.
