Additional Jeep Grand Cherokee Towing Technology

On top of the impressive maximum towing capacity that the Jeep Grand Cherokee brings to the table, it also has a suite of additional tech features that makes towing much easier as well as safer, including:

  • High-performance Brembo brake systems: These high-performance brakes are available for the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk® and SRT® trims. They use six-piston calipers, have two-piece vented rotors, and 15-inch front rotors.
  • Hill Descent Control: For this feature, the vehicle can sense if your vehicle is on a decline and automatically applies the brakes in order to drive down a hill more safely.
  • Trailer Sway Control: This system assists during challenging conditions by improving the vehicle’s grip, and alternating the wheels to which it applies brake pressure while throttling the engine in real-time.
  • Hill Start Assist: Hill Start Assist stops the Jeep Grand Cherokee from rolling when you disengage the brakes while parked on an incline or decline. This system works to give you time between releasing the brake to when you push the accelerator, and doesn’t allow for rolling.
