Tow Confidently with Grand Cherokee Towing Technology

Whether you’ve been navigating Gretna with a trailer in tow for years or you’re new to the game, you’ll appreciate having these towing features on your side:

  • Trailer Sway Control: When the wind starts whipping in New Orleans, trailer sway control will help keep your vehicle and trailer stable. The system adjusts the engine throttle as necessary and places brake pressure on alternating wheels to keep vehicle stability in check.
  • Hill Descent Control: When this system detects a steep incline, it will automatically apply the brakes. This allows you to steadily drive downhill, even if you’re pulling 7,200 pounds behind you.
  • Hill Start Assist: If you’re parked on an uphill incline, hill start assist will prevent roll back by securing the brakes while your foot moves to the accelerator, allowing for a smooth departure.
  • High-Performance Brembo Brake Systems: Brembo brake systems are exclusive to the top-tier Grand Cherokee SRT® and Trackhawk® trims. They provide superior stopping power with the help of two-piece vented rotors and six-piston front calipers for the Trackhawk® and 15-inch front rotors with the same six-piston calipers on the SRT®.
