Jeep Grand Cherokee Technology For Easy Towing

Thanks to Trailer Sway Control, Bristol drivers can reduce trailer sway while also improving handling to make tricky towing conditions easier than ever. How does it work? Trailer Sway Control works by applying brake pressure to alternating wheels while simultaneously adjusting engine throttle. Together, these actions maintain vehicle stability.

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.

With Hill Descent Control, your vehicle will automatically apply the brakes if your Grand Cherokee system senses an incline or decline. With Hill Descent Control, you can steadily and safety navigate hills.

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 Trailkhawk and 15-inch front rotors and six-piston calipers on the SRT®.
