February 3rd, 2020 by

We get it – you’ve got important things to haul and you need to trust that your vehicle is up for the challenge. If a pickup truck isn’t for you and you prefer the rugged and adventurous vibe of an iconic Jeep Wrangler, then we’ve got great news for you – the Wrangler has incredible towing capabilities and a massive host of performance-enhancing features! You’ll be able to tow a camper, horse trailer, boat and much more with a well-equipped Jeep Wrangler. Let’s take a look at exactly what the Wrangler is packing and how it’s built for life in Edmonton!

Get to Know the Jeep Wrangler

Jeep Wrangler is unmistakable in design and performance. With its tapered nose, removable doors and roof, fold-flat windshield, flared fenders and unbeatable off-roading capabilities, Wrangler has accrued a cult following among adventurists over the past few decades. Wrangler offers two main confident and fuel efficient engines: a standard 3.6L, V6 with 285 hp and 260 of lb-ft of torque and a 2.0L Turbo engine that delivers a powerful 295 lb-ft of torque. With a 1,235lb payload capacity and 3,5000 maximum towing capacity, Wrangler has the ability to haul a camper up steep mountain roads with authority. Its sturdy frame and dynamic suspension provides a comfortable ride while you tackle the rugged Alberta landscape, and a wide range of driver-assist tech and safety features make Wrangler one of the safest SUVs on the road.


What Can a Jeep Wrangler Tow?

The Jeep Wrangler 2.0L Turbo is rated for a maximum towing capacity of 3,500lbs, which means you can confidently tow a wide range of toys that are perfectly suited for life in Alberta:

  • For those who trek to Calgary for the annual Calgary Stampede, Wrangler can tow a single-horse trailer, which usually maxes out around 2000lbs, and a horse that weighs up to a whopping 1500lbs with confidence.
  • A motorboat typically weighs in around 2500lbs and most boat trailers about 500lbs, so trips to Alberta Beach or Garner Lake Provincial Park will be a breeze for Wrangler.
  • There are dozens of RVs available that weigh less than 3000lbs, including popular models like Aliner, Forest River R-Pod and Airstream RV. Even with your blankets, folding chairs and a few cold ones in the fridge, Wrangler can take on your biggest camping adventures.
  • Edmontonians know a thing or two about how to enjoy winter sports, so you’ll be happy to know that two snowmobiles plus their trailer will barely reach 1500lbs, making a trip into the mountains to hit the powder a walk in the park for Wrangler.
  • Need to help your buddy pick up a new car and tow it back to the city? Most mid-size sedans weigh in just under 3500lbs, with dozens of more compact cars coming in at significantly less. You can confidently be “that friend” when you’re a Jeep owner!
