Jeep Grand Cherokee Towing Features

While the power behind the Jeep Grand Cherokee is in part due to its capable engines, they can’t take all the credit for its towing prowess. The following features are standard or optional to give your Grand Cherokee more towing power:

  • Trailer Sway Control —improves your vehicle’s grip on the road in challenging conditions, which helps to make handling on Bourne roads easier and safer.
  • Hill Descent Control —applies the brakes when needed on a steep hill. This makes it easier to tow heavy loads while accelerating at a steady pace.
  • Hill Start Assist — prevents your Grand Cherokee from rolling backward if you disengage the brakes while parked on an uphill incline. When you release the brake pedal and press the accelerator, this system provides enough power to help you move forward up the hill with ease.
  • High-Performance Brembo Brakes — available on Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk® and SRT® configurations, these systems use two-piece vented rotors, six-piston calipers, and 15-inch front rotors respectively.
