Many campers wonder just how compatible their Jeep and their toy hauler can be.
The Jeeps of yesteryear might not have been able to have the towing capacity necessary to haul a toy hauler, but in recent years Jeep vehicles have been manufactured with increased towing capabilities.
Many Jeeps now have the option to add on additional trailer tow packages, which increases the overall towing capabilities of the vehicle.
Two Great Toy Haulers that a Jeep Grand Cherokee can tow:
The Jeep Grand Cherokee has a decent towing capability that can be significantly increased if a Trailer Tow package has been added.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee models that have a V-6 engine are capable of towing up to 6,200 pounds if no Trailer Tow package has been added. In contrast, the Jeep Grand Cherokees with a V-8 engine that have the Trailer Tow package added have an impressive towing capacity of 7,200 pounds.
Since the Jeep Grand Cherokee is ideal for off-road adventuring, it’s a perfect towing vehicle for smaller toy haulers that weigh less than 6,200 pounds if you don’t have a Trailer Tow package added. Yet, if you have this package, it’s ideal for hauling a toy hauler that is 7,200 pounds or less.
To help you with your search and narrow down the amount of time you need to spend seeking a toy hauler that adheres to these maximum towing capabilities, we have put together two great toy hauler options for Jeep Grand Cherokees that you should consider.
