With the proper equipment, the 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee towing capacity maxes out at 7,200 pounds, which is a considerably higher towing capacity than that of its sibling model, the Jeep Cherokee. Even with four available engine options, the Grand Cherokee tow rating stays mostly consistent, meaning Homer City-area drivers can expect strong performance across the board. That holds true whether you’re using your Grand Cherokee for daily driving on the Clymer roads or to head off the beaten path.

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.
