OP, the current Jeep Grand Cherokee is regarded as EXCELLENT tow vehicle. Just make a proper research. Airforums would be a great place to start. You are not planning to go big as I understand, but just be aware of TW limitations. Payload and axle limits are the most important. Jeep is relatively short wheelbase, but if you use proper hitch (Propride or Hensley) you will eliminate sway.

The ratings on it ranged from a measly 2000 lbs without the tow package up to 6500 lbs with the highest tow package so there was a large range in capacity. I am not familiar with the newer models though. I know our WJ with the 4.0 struggled with a 10' popup. We have moved up to a travel trailer now so a truck is used for towing. The Jeep gets school and grocery store duty only now. Do your research to ensure the capability of your Jeep, the short wheelbase won't be your friend if you are close to max weights.

Wrascal, there is a big difference between a 2015 Jeep Cherokee & a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Two completely different vehicles, capacities, engines, transmissions.

I have a 2015 grand Cherokee W 3.0L Diesel rated to tow 7000#. I'm towing a 23RLSW approx. 5700# loaded with no issues.

Match your TV to your trailer or vice versa.
