How much can the 2020 Jeep Gladiator tow?
Jeep might seem like a newcomer to the midsize pickup truck segment of the automotive industry. In fact, the automaker made a small pickup a long time ago that was called, the Scrambler. It’s newest, and arguably most exciting, addition to its lineup is decided something very different. It is pretty rare for a day to go by when someone does not visit the Albany Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram showroom to ask one of our product experts, ‘How much can the 2020 Jeep Gladiator tow?’ To be sure, the Wrangler-based 2020 Gladiator is small, nimble and suited for off-road driving, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have a lot to offer when it’s implemented as a pickup truck. Let’s take a look at what customers can expect to see.

Towing capacity specs
Just like its Jeep Wrangler ancestor, the 2020 Gladiator is available in several trim grades with varying levels of performance and capability. The actual towing capability will depend on several factors, including suspension equipment, the transmission’s gear ratio as well as the transmission itself. However, every version can demonstrate the capability to make the 2020 Gladiator a strong towing vehicle in its industry class.
At the low end of the spectrum, the 2020 Jeep Gladiator can pull trailers weighing as much as 4,000 pounds. When the new Jeep midsize pickup truck is properly equipped with the necessary equipment, it can pull a maximum of 7,650 pounds – a mark that will put the Gladiator at, or near the top of its class.
Albany CDJR customers will have two engine options to choose from when they are outfitting the 2020 Jeep Gladiator. The standard powertrain is a naturally aspirated 3.6-liter, V-6 engine which can be attached to either a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic transmission. It will make 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Later in the vehicle’s production cycle, Jeep will introduce an EcoDiesel engine for better efficiency scores and more low-end torque which will likely increase towing capacity.
