Hello, and welcome to JA!!! here is the towing capacity of your vehicle!!! also if you can get me your vin, i will find out what gear ratio you have!!

How heavy can a trailer safely be?

It depends on how you plan to use your rig. For example, speed, altitude, road grades, outside temperature and how much your vehicle is used to pull a trailer are all important. And, it can also depend on any special equipment that you have on your vehicle.

Look in the following chart to find the maximum trailer weight for your vehicle.
