That makes handling your vehicle on Clymer motorways easier overall. To help maintain vehicle stability, this important Cherokee safety feature applies brake pressure on alternating wheels, while throttling the engine in real-time.

Hill Start Assist prevents your vehicle from rolling backward if you disengage the brakes while parked uphill. During the time between releasing the brake pedal and pressing the accelerator, the system pushes the vehicle with enough force for smooth forward movement as you drive up the crest.
