Why Choose the Jeep Grand Cherokee for Your Towing Needs?

There are several additional features that contribute to the remarkable towing capability of the latest Jeep Grand Cherokee. Here are a few of the top features worth checking out:

  • Hill Descent Control automatically applies the brakes on the Jeep Grand Cherokee when a steep incline is detected by the system. Steadily and safely descend down the hill no matter what you are towing.
  • Trailer Sway Control reduces trailer sway and makes handling your vehicle easier in challenging towing conditions you might experience on Houston roads. How does it work? It applies brake pressure on alternating wheels as well as adjusts engine throttle when needed to keep the vehicle stable.
  • High-performance Brembo brake systems can be added to the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk and SRT® for extra peace of mind when towing. You’ll find two-piece vented rotors and six-piston front Brembo calipers on the Trackhawk and enjoy 15-inch front rotors and six-piston calipers on the SRT®.
  • Hill Start Assist prevents roll back if you are parked on an uphill incline. The system holds the brakes between the time that you release your foot from the brake pedal and the time when you press the accelerator with enough power to move the vehicle forward.
