The Jeep Grand Cherokee Towing Features

How much the Grand Cherokee can tow is also augmented by its variety of offered towing features. These features are standard or optional, and give your Grand Cherokee more muscle around Lexington: 

  • Trailer Sway Control —improves your SUV’s grip on the road during challenging road conditions, which helps to make handling on Hastings roadways easier and safer.
  • Hill Descent Control —applies the brakes accordingly, based on whether you’re on a steep hill. Thus, making it easier to tow heavy cargo while traveling at a steady pace. 
  • Hill Start Assist — prevents 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.
