The towing capacity of a 2014 Jeep Wrangler is 2,000 pounds, which is enough to tow a small camper or boat trailer. The vehicle offers an optional trailer sway control package that automatically keeps towed items from drifting while in transit.

When calculating a vehicle’s tow capacity, it is important to include the weight of all gear and fluids in addition to the trailer weight. Towing at maximum capacity requires the proper hitch, ball mount and ball for the particular trailer. Each of these items has its own tow rating, and drivers cannot tow more weight than what is recommended by the item with the lowest capacity.
