What Is the 2024 Jeep Gladiator’s Maximum Towing Capacity?

The 2024 Jeep Gladiator offers outstanding towing performance for a four-wheel-drive adventure truck, allowing you to take on the most significant challenges, whether that’s hauling your buddies out of the mud on the trail or pulling trailers. It offers a pickup’s brute strength and hauling capabilities while maintaining the versatility and all-terrain capability of a four-wheel-drive Jeep that we know and love. 2024 Jeep Gladiator Sport models available at Meadowland of Carmel can achieve 7,700 pounds maximum gas towing capacity, an unmatched towing strength in the small pickup vehicle class.

Jeep Gladiator Engine Performance Specs

We can thank the 2024 Jeep Gladiator’s 3.6L Pentastar V-6 engine for its towing capacities. This engine comes as standard in the entire 2024 Jeep range, including the Gladiator, Wrangler, and even the Grand Cherokee. It boasts 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque and can achieve up to 16 mpg in the city or 23 mpg on the highway. This high-spec engine will keep the 2024 Jeep range running year-on-year, taking whatever challenges you throw at it.

How Can I Use the Jeep Gladiator’s Towing Capacity?

The maximum towing capacity of the 2024 range of Jeep Gladiators may seem excessive for a small pickup, but its high load ceiling guarantees performance for a wide range of heavy-duty tasks. The 2024 Jeep Gladiator’s tolerance for heavy towing means that you can easily attach a trailer hitch and pull a trailer loaded to the brim. This includes holiday trailers, cargo trailers, gooseneck trailers, and any towing attachment that fits within the Gladiator’s hauling capabilities. This makes the 2024 Gladiator a reliable option if you regularly tow varied cargo and adapt to towing challenges on the fly.

Who Is the Jeep Gladiator’s Towing Capacity Useful For?

The Jeep Gladiator’s high hauling capacity is helpful for adventurers, holidaymakers, and working professionals due to the wide-ranging applications of its towing capacity. For example, adventurous Jeep owners can easily hitch a Jet Ski carrier or a trailer of two to three dirt bikes to their 2024 Gladiator. Working professionals could reliably use their Gladiator to tow a work trailer full of supplies or a small one- or two-horse trailer to a show. Holidaymakers could tow a medium-sized camper or a small fishing boat to their local spot. The possibilities are endless for the Gladiator’s impressive capabilities.

Other Jeep Gladiator Towing Features

The ease of towing with the 2024 Jeep Gladiator doesn’t stop at its high towing weight capacity. Each Jeep Gladiator has a 5.5-foot truck bed, which adds a whole extra dimension of cargo space in addition to your towing capacity. 11.6 inches of ground clearance ensures that no matter how weighed down the Gladiator is, you have plenty of room to work with navigating uneven terrain and bumps. The 12.3-inch integrated touch screen’s Trail Guides and Adventure Guides can help you plan routes effectively while accounting for your towing load.

Snow-rated tire options increase the Gladiator’s capability to tow even in snowy and lightly icy conditions. The rear-mounted trailer hitch camera can help you keep track of your trailer mid-drive and identify problems on the move. The Mojave X and Rubicon X further include steel bumpers and rock rails to protect your Jeep Gladiator from challenging rocky conditions. The 2024 Gladiator range also includes transmission skid plates and three options of American Expedition Vehicles packages to meet greater protection requirements. Whatever your needs, at Meadowland of Carmel we’re here to help you find the 2024 Gladiator option that meets them.

How Do Towing Weights Impact My Jeep Gladiator’s Miles Per Gallon?

As much as a Jeep Gladiator answers any towing task you throw at it, this performance comes at a cost. No matter how light the load, any towing weight will impact a Jeep Gladiator’s miles-per-gallon performance due to the additional energy required to pull the extra weight of a trailer. Estimates suggest that the overall miles per gallon of a vehicle decreases by around 2% per 100 pounds of tow weight added, significantly impacting how many miles you can get out of a fuel tank.

To help mitigate reduced fuel economy, plan and bear additional fuel consumption in mind when you know you have a load to tow and a tank to fill—estimate where you’re likely to run dry and check if gas stations are on your route. Also, in addition to greater fuel consumption, higher tow weights will also increase wear on your Gladiator’s tires, so you may need to get them rotated and changed more frequently. Bring your Gladiator into our Service Center for regular maintenance checks if you test its performance to the limits.
