Towing Terms

In order to truly appreciate the Jeep Gladiator towing capabilities, it is important to have a solid understanding of towing terminology.

  • Towing Capacity: The towing capacity is the amount of weight that your truck can tow when pulling a trailer. The 2021 Jeep Gladiator has two engines – a standard 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 engine that has a towing capacity of up to 7,650 pounds and a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 engine that can tow up to 6,500 pounds.
  • Curb Weight: The curb weight of your vehicle is how much it weighs without passengers or items.
  • Payload: This term refers to the maximum amount of weight your truck can handle in its cargo area plus the curb weight. For the Jeep Gladiator, the payload is up to 1,700 pounds.
  • Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR): The weight of your truck, a loaded trailer, any passengers, and cargo equal the GCWR. This is 5,800 pounds for the Jeep Gladiator.

Towing Features

Bringing along hefty loads comes easy with the many towing features of the Jeep Gladiator. Much of its strength comes from a high-strength steel frame, a coil front and rear suspension, and innovative technology.

The ParkView® rear back up camera displays gridlines with an available trailer hitch zoom for more precise alignment with a trailer. An available integrated trailer brake controller provides adjustable braking for safe slowing and stopping.
