Summer is just around the corner, and for many American families, that means enjoying time out on the lake, traveling across the country, and other adventures involving road trips and towing recreational items. If you’re ready to get your summer fun on, but need a vehicle that’s more conducive to towing, we’ve got you covered.

Whether you know exactly what weight you’re working with, or if you’re open to different maximum towing options, our professionals can talk about engines, trim options, and other details to help you determine which vehicle is your perfect fit.

If you’re looking for more of an overview, we have several suitable models you’ll want to consider. To start, the 2019 Jeep® Cherokee and 2018 Jeep Compass are both solid options. They can tow up to 2,000 pounds, which makes them fairly powerful yet still very efficient. Plus, they’ve got that ground clearance most drivers love in an SUV.

The most versatile SUV, both in general and for towing specifically, is the Jeep Grand Cherokee. Depending on the trim, engine type, and if you opt for the towing package or not, this model can get up to 7,200 pounds of towing power with the right combination. According to the official Jeep towing comparison chart, that’s the max out of any current Jeep models on the market.

It probably goes without saying, but someone looking for the most towing power should certainly consider a truck like the 2019 RAM 1500. Depending on your engine choice, this model boasts a towing capacity from 6,000 to 8,590 pounds. Another good option is the Dodge Durango, which offers a whopping 7,400 pounds of towing capability.

Whether you’re looking to tow bikes, jet skis, or even boats or campers, we’re sure we can help. Come by our Chrysler dealership near Fort Scott today.
