With increasing altitude the engine power and therefore the car's climbing ability are impaired because of the reduced air density, so the maximum trailer weight has to be reduced accordingly. The weight of the car and trailer must be reduced by 10% for every further 3280 ft (1,000 m) (or part thereof).

Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) - 5072 lb

  1. Upgrading the Rear Springs.
  2. Adding Coil-Over Shock Absorbers.
  3. Installing a Longer Truck Bed.
  4. Attaching a Trailer.
  5. Adding Bed Racks.

Horsepower - 385 hp

The higher the power of your engine, the more weight your car can pull.

Torque - 380 Lb-Ft

Axle Ratio - 3.31

It is the same for all trims.

The higher the axle ratio, the more power your vehicle produces, and as a result, the more weight this car can tow.

Drive Type - no data

All-wheel or rear-wheel drive vehicles are best suited for towing, while front-wheel drive vehicles can haul much less weight.

Transmission - no data

Do not overload your vehicle while towing, as this can cause the transmission to overheat and fail. If your transmission has "Towing mode" - be sure to turn it on.

Turbocharger - no data

Turbocharged engines produce more power, so if you need a vehicle for towing, choose the one equipped with a turbo.

Wheelbase - 119.4

The longer your vehicle's wheelbase, the less likely the trailer you tow will push down on the rear axle and lift the front end.

Front Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR) - no data

It is the maximum allowable weight that can be placed on a front axle of your Jaguar XJ.

Rear Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR) - no data

It is the maximum allowable weight that can be placed on a rear axle of your Jaguar XJ.
