Jeep Renegade Towing Capacity
Performance is one of the key factors in any decision to purchase an SUV, even a compact and sporty one like the Jeep Renegade. With Jeep, it’s even more important, as the legacy and reputation of this well-known brand hinges upon its outstanding performance numbers.
From best in class off-roading to reliable performance and a comfortable ride, the Jeep Renegade offers drivers across Brockton, Stoughton, and Randolph just about all there is to offer in a small crossover. What about towing capacity, however? How much can this reliable compact SUV tow behind it? Let’s examine the Jeep Renegade towing capacity, its trim levels, and equipment that maximize it, and where you can go for a test drive.
How Much Can the Jeep Renegade Tow?
2016 Jeep® Renegade Trailhawk
When properly equipped, the 2018 Jeep Renegade towing capacity tops off at 2,000 pounds, which is plenty of strength to haul your boat, ATV, or any other type of cargo you need.
For the most part, the specific towing capacity you’ll get from your crossover depends on the trim level and engine you choose. Fortunately, the Jeep Renegade comes with an available 2.4L motor that pumps out 180 horsepower with 175 lb-ft of torque.
On top of that, that mighty engine teams up with a 9-speed automatic transmission for seamless performance, no matter what you’re pulling along the road. Thanks to these performance-enhancing mechanics, you’ll be hitched up with your cargo and ready to roll in no time.
Understanding Jeep Renegade Towing Capacity
To ensure that your vehicle is prepared to haul some hefty cargo, it’s essential to supply your Jeep Renegade with all the right tools that’ll help you get the job done.
For example, this new SUV offers up an optional Trailer Tow group, which arms your Jeep Renegade with a Class III hitch receiver and a 4-pin wiring harness. By outfitting your vehicle with these towing must-haves, you’ll easily hitch up your trailer and set sail down your route with all the muscle required for tough jobs.
In addition to this strength-boosting package, the Jeep Renegade Trailhawk trim serves up even more pulling prowess with its Trail-Rated® capability.
Once you’ve snagged a spot inside your Renegade Trailhawk, you’ll take advantage of capabilities like Jeep Active Driver Low mode, as well as front and rear tow hooks and a collection of other terrain-tackling amenities.
All in all, these additional gadgets make it even easier to tow your trailer along the steep mountainside to your family’s favorite camping site.
