Boat towing

Out of curiosity as I may buy a boat in the near future, how much weight can the 5.7 WK pull? Im looking at a 26' boat. Im also looking at a 20' and I KNOW it will take care of that.

Re: Boat towing

officially the wk 4x4 hemi will tow 7400. I tow a 23' bowrider(~6,000 with gear and trailer) with mine and have zero issues. Plenty of power.

Re: Boat towing

I pull a 20' Sea Ray (about 5,000 with everything) in hilly CT. No problems at all.

Re: Boat towing

I tow a Sea Ray BR 220 with my JGC. The boat & trailer weigh around 5700 lbs. I purchased a weight distributing hitch but haven't needed it for towing the boat. The JGC is very stable towing at interstate speeds. The Hemi is great on the twisty, hilly roads when approaching the lake.
