Jeep Grand Cherokee Technology Makes Towing a Breeze

Trailer Sway Control – This feature minimizes trailer sway so towing in even tough conditions is not a challenge. How does it work? This system applies brake pressure on alternating wheels and adjusting engine throttle if necessary to help maintain vehicle stability.

Hill Descent Control – This feature applies the brakes automatically when a steep incline is detected. Hill Descent Control helps you safely conquer hills even when towing heavy items.

Hill Start Assist – When you park on an uphill incline, this feature prevents roll back by holding the brakes from the time that you release your foot from the brake pedal until the time when you press the accelerator with enough force to move forward.

High-performance Brembo brake systems – This feature is an option for Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk and SRT® models. It’s ideal for towing because of its two-piece vented rotors and six-piston front Brembo calipers for the Trackhawk and 15-inch front rotors and six-piston calipers on the SRT®.
