Jeep Grand Cherokee Technology For Easy Towing

Trailer Sway Control reduces trailer sway and makes handling your vehicle easier in challenging towing conditions you might experience on Goldsboro roads. This Grand Cherokee safety feature works by applying brake pressure on alternating wheels and adjusting engine throttle if necessary to help maintain vehicle stability.
Hill Descent Control automatically applies the brakes on the Jeep Grand Cherokee if the system detects a steep incline, you can steadily and safely drive down a hill, even if you are towing a heavy load behind you.
Hill Start Assist helps if you are parked on an uphill incline–the system prevents roll back by holding the brakes between the time that you release your foot from the brake pedal and when you press the accelerator enough for smooth forward movement.
High-performance Brembo brake systems are available on the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk and SRT® for extra peace of mind when towing–with two-piece vented rotors and six-piston front Brembo calipers on the Trailhawk and 15-inch front rotors and six-piston calipers on the SRT®.
