If you have a 2023 Jeep Wrangler and need to know your towing capacity, you have come to the right place.
Here you will find all the GCWRs, max trailer towing weights, payload capacity and GVWR suggested by Toyota. The information is collected from the 2023 Jeep Wrangler Brochure and 2023Jeep Wrangler Owners Manual.
The 2023 Jeep Wrangler has a max trailer towing capacity of 2,000 lbs for all 2-door variations and 3,500 lbs for all 4-door Jeeps. Any weight over 2,000 lbs requires a separate trailer braking system.
Ford says that the tongue weight for any towing should be no more than 10%. So this should be taken into account when setting up your trailer.
2023 Jeep Wrangler Towing Capacity
The 2023 Jeep Wrangler can tow up to 3,500 lbs for 4-door vehicles that are properly equipped. Jeep Wranglers with 2-doors can only tow 2,000 lbs.
The vehicle either has a GCWR of 8,016 lbs for the 2-door or 8,117 lbs for the 4-door vehicles.
The 6.4 L vehicles are slightly different and have a GCWR of 8,427 lbs.
For towing over 1,000 lbs in the Jeep Wrangler, trailers with brakes are recommended, but required for trailer weights over 2,000 lbs.
2023 Jeep Wrangler Tongue Weight
Tongue weight refers to the weight exerted on a trailer hitch/ball mount. Generally speaking the tongue weight should usually be between 10-15% of the total trailer weight.
However, Jeep specifies that for the Wrangler this should be 10% of the total weight. This means for a Wrangler carrying the max capacity, the tongue weight should be no more than 200 or 350 lbs for the 2-door and 4-door respectively.
All of the 2023 Jeep Wranglers have the ability to tow. They do not come manufactured to tow right away, but all have the ability to add the Trailer Tow and HD Electrical Group package.
This package includes:
- Class II Hitch Receiver
- 4/7 pin Wiring Harness
- 240 amp-alternator
- 700 amp batter
- 4 pre-wires auxiliary switches
However, built into every Wrangler Sport is Trailer Sway Control.
There are 10 trims in the 2023 Wrangler, both gas and hybrid versions. These are:
- Sport S
- Willys Sport
- Willys Sport S
- 4xe Willys
- 4xe Sahara
- 4xe Rubicon
Each of these vehicles has various features available such as interior and exterior design. When it comes to towing there is no impact on the max towing capacity.
The best way to check the payload capacity is to find the GVWR listed on the certification sticker inside the driver’s side door. But they are mentioned in the e-brochure or owners manual which are shown below.
The total maximum payload capacity in all of the 2023 Wrangler is between 1,028 lbs and 1,233 lbs.
