What is the Towing Capacity of a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee With 3.6L V6 Engine

I referred to the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee owner's manual to find what the Max Gross Trailer Weight rating.

According to the manual, on page 531, the max trailer weight rating is determined by your Jeep's drivetrain. For the 3.6L V6 with either 4x2 or 4x4 models, the max trailer weight rating is the 6,200 lbs you listed. This will be with or without towing package. The 6,200 lbs weight is the max the 2015 Grand Cherokee will be able to tow safely.

However, although your Jeep has a max trailer weight rating of 6,200 lbs, you will be only able to tow a trailer that weighs as much as your lowest rated towing component will allow.

For an example, the Curt Class III Trailer Hitch, # C13182, is a custom-fit trailer hitch for the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee. However, the hitch has a 5,000 lbs standard towing capacity. Therefore, with this hitch the allowed max trailer weight would be 5,000 lbs.
