Towing ability of a 2010 Jeep Cherokee?

How would a 2010 Jeep Cherokee 2.8 CRD Limited Auto perform off-road pulling a horse trailer with two horses? Also, what about its economy?

Hi Maria,

If it’s the four-wheel-drive version (a 2WD model was occasionally offered) then it should have a maximum towing capacity of 3,504kg, which should easily handle a horse box with two on board. Just make sure that the combined weight doesn’t put you over the total 3,500kg limit, or you’ll need a special towing licence. Official fuel economy when the car was new was 31mpg, or 8.9 litres per 100km.
