Features That Help You Tow with Your Grand Cherokee

The Jeep Grand Cherokee engine choices are hardly the only part of this SUV that make it tow-ready. In fact, a panoply of other towing-enhancing features are available, including but not limited to:

  • Trailer Sway Control —improves your SUV’s grip on the road in challenging conditions, which helps to make handling on Ruston roadways easier and safer.
  • Hill Descent Control —applies the brakes accordingly, based on whether you’re on a steep hill. This makes it easier to tow heavy cargo while traveling at a steady pace.
  • Hill Start Assist — keeps your Grand Cherokee from rolling backward if you disengage the brakes while parked on an uphill incline. When you release the brake pedal and press the accelerator, this system provides enough force to help you move forward up the hill with ease.
  • High-Performance Brembo Brakes — are available for Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk® and SRT® configurations. These systems use two-piece vented rotors, six-piston calipers, and 15-inch front rotors respectively.
