I have a friend that needs to know the towing capacity of his 1999 Jeep Cherokee with 4 liter straigt 6 cylinder engine, 2 wd, automatic. He has not been able to find out any info. Are there any web sites that might have that data on older vehicles. Thanks for any suggestions.

John

John,

According to Trailer Life, the Cherokee and Grand Cherokee with the 4.0 liter six banger can tow up to 5,000# if equipped with an automatic transmission, weight distributing hitch, and the 'trailer tow' package.

We have a 99 Cherokee 4 door as one of our daily drivers (same engine as you describe, auto transmission). When we had a pop-up several years ago, we towed with the Cherokee. It was a 1022 Starcraft with rooftop AC. Not a big pop-up, but not tiny either, double bed and queen bed. It had a 10' long box when closed, single axle, less than 5000 lbs.

Dont tow more than a pop-up of the above size with the Cherokee. It has power and will not overheat, but the short and narrow wheelbase of the Cherokee does not lend itself to a bigger trailer. We had to use very long mirror extensions to see past the pop-up's width and a longer or taller trailer would have caused excessive sway. It dropped the MPG fron 21 down to 13 when towing and with two adults and one dog in the Cherokee.
