Jeep Grand Cherokee Technology For Easy Towing

Not only will you get great towing capabilities with the Grand Cherokee, but your towing experiences will be made simpler thanks to its well-appointed interior that features standard and available technologies:

Trailer Sway Control: With Trailer Sway Control, you’ll always feel in control when driving through Nicholasville in rain, snow, and other challenging conditions. It will apply brake pressure on alternating wheels and adjust the engine throttle whenever necessary to keep the Grand Cherokee stable.

Hill Descent Control: When you’ve got a loaded trailer in tow, descending a hill can feel a bit sketchy at times. When Hill Descent Control detects a steep incline, it automatically applies your brakes, allowing you to safely drive downhill.

Hill Start Assist: Have you ever had issues with rollback when you’re parked uphill or leaving a stoplight on an incline? Hill Start Assist will prevent that rollback for you by holding the brakes during the short period between your foot leaving the brake pedal and hitting the accelerator.

High-performance Brembo brake systems: These systems are exclusively available on the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk and the SRT®. They’ll provide peace of mind with two-piece vented rotors paired with six-piston front Brembo calipers for the Trackhawk, and 15-inch front rotors for the SRT®.
