Jeep Grand Cherokee Towing Technology Features

There are dozens of Jeep safety features that are sure to make towing a breeze! Key features include:

  • Trailer Sway Control helps you keep control during the most challenging towing conditions on Portage motorways. This important Grand Cherokee safety feature helps maintain vehicle stability by applying brake pressure on alternating wheels and throttling the engine when needed.
  • Hill Descent Control automatically applies your Jeep Grand Cherokee brakes and downshifts when you’re on a steep decline. This enables drivers to tow heavy loads while traveling steadily and safely downhill.
  • Hill Start Assist prevents your vehicle from rolling backward when stopped on a hill in the time between releasing the brake pedal and pressing the accelerator. This system pushes the vehicle forward with enough force for smooth forward movement as you drive up the crest.
  • High-performance Brembo brake systems can be equipped with Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk® and SRT® trim packages. These high-performance brakes use vented two-piece rotors for optimum heat dispersion. Calipers are 6-piston front and 4-piston rear to ensure prompt stopping ability.
