Simplify Towing With Jeep Grand Cherokee Technology

Trailer Sway Control tightens grip on the road while you pull weight during challenging towing conditions. That makes handling your vehicle on Palm Bay motorways easier overall. To help maintain vehicle stability, this important Grand Cherokee safety feature puts pressure on the brakes between alternating wheels, while throttling the engine in real-time.

Hill Descent Control can tell if your vehicle is on a steep incline, and automatically applies the Jeep Grand Cherokee brakes accordingly, enabling drivers to tow heavy loads, while traveling steadily and safely down hills.

Hill Start Assist prevents your vehicle from rolling backward if you disengage the brakes while parked uphill between when you release the brake pedal and press the accelerator. In that interval, the system pushes the vehicle with enough force for a smooth forward movement as you drive up the crest.

High-performance Brembo brake systems can be equipped with Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk® and SRT® trim packages, using two-piece vented rotors, and 15-inch front rotors, respectively. Both use six-piston calipers.
