Jeep Grand Cherokee Towing Features

The Jeep Grand Cherokee’s engines play a significant role in how much this SUV can tow, but the following features come standard or optional to enhance towing capabilities even further:

  • Trailer Sway Control: In challenging Clymer road conditions, this system improves traction to prevent sway and make handling easier.
  • Hill Start Assist: Traveling uphill with a trailer attached to your SUV is a difficult endeavor, but this system prevents you from rolling backward if you disengage the brakes when parked on a hill. In fact, it provides enough force when you release the brake pedal to help you move forward up the hill.
  • Hill Descent Control: Similarly, this system applies the brakes so that you can maintain control when traveling down a hill, making hauling heavy cargo more manageable.
  • High-Performance Brembo Brakes: Available on Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk® and SRT® configurations, these brakes rely on two-piece vented rotors, six-piston calipers, and 15-inch front rotors to improve braking abilities.
