2021 jeep grand cherokee at langley bc dealershipThe 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee and 2021 Ford Explorer can pull trailers. While not always the main selling point, this ability is essential for people who want to get the most out of their utility vehicle's versatility. 

Do these two popular SUVs perform similarly when it comes to towing? We will compare both base models and more-powerful trims to see if the 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee or 2021 Ford Explorer stands out.

2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Base engine: 3.6L Pentastar V6
Max towing: 2,812 kg
Most powerful engine: 5.7L HEMI V8
Max towing: 3,265 kg

2021 Ford Explorer
Base engine: 2.3L EcoBoost I-4
Max towing: 2,404 kg
Most powerful engine: 3.0L EcoBoost V6
Max towing: 2,540 kg

The 2021 Grand Cherokee stands out when it comes to towing. Its smallest engine, the 3.6L Pentastar V6, can pull 272 kg more than the Ford Escape’s most potent option. The Jeep also has rear load-leveling suspension, a four and seven-pin trailer wiring harness, and a heavy-duty cooling system to handle high-rpm operation.  

The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee excels at versatility. Its Quadra-Trac 4x4 drivetrain can conquer various kinds of terrain and challenging conditions. On the inside, it offers exceptional comfort, with heated seats standard on all trims.
