Choose a towing vehicle wisely. Make sure the engine has enough power, the gearbox is capable of withstanding heavy loads, and the axle ratio is optimal for hauling.
The maximum weight that Jeep Grand Cherokee is allowed to tow. The maximum trailer weights listed are only applicable for altitudes up to 3280 ft (1,000 m) above sea level. 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).
This is the maximum amount of weight Jeep Grand Cherokee is rated to carry (engine, chassis, fluids, passengers, cargo, load - everything). It is often determined by the manufacturer and is indicated in the owner's manual or on the inside of the drive's door panel.

The higher the power of your engine, the more weight your car can pull.
High torque is essential for towing because it allows you to pull the trailer at a lower RPM, reducing the strain on the engine.
The higher the axle ratio, the more power your vehicle produces, and as a result, the more weight this car can tow.
All-wheel or rear-wheel drive vehicles are best suited for towing, while front-wheel drive vehicles can haul much less weight.
It is the same for all trims.
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.
Turbocharged engines produce more power, so if you need a vehicle for towing, choose the one equipped with a turbo.

The gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) will be the greatest operating weight (that includes cargo and passengers) and ought not to be exceeded.

The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) has developed the J2807 set of recommended practices. The tow test procedures designed by the big brains at the SAE consist of a series of rigorous real-world challenges to determine the Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR) of a vehicle and trailer combination.
