More Jeep Grand Cherokee Towing Features

The 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee offers the following standard and available features to make towing around Walnut Creek safer and more accessible:

  • Trailer Sway Control — minimizes trailer sway in normal and precarious conditions. Using targeted braking and throttle control, it helps you stay on course with a trailer in tow.
  • Hill Descent Control — applies the brakes as you descend a steep incline. This helps you traverse hills safely with or without a trailer.
  • Hill Start Assist — prevents roll-back as you travel uphill. Hill Start Assist applies the brakes long enough so you can move your foot from the brake to the accelerator without rolling backward.
  • Brembo Brakes — are high-performance brakes offered on the Trackhawk and SRT®. These brakes deliver greater stopping power with upgraded hardware like 15-inch front rotors for the SRT®.
