2021 Grand Cherokee Towing-Enhancing Features

While the new Grand Cherokee engines are a large part of why this midsize truck can tow so much, the following towing-enhancing features also help to that end:

  • Hill Descent Control — this technologyapplies the brakes as needed when you’re on a steep hill. This makes it easier to tow heavy cargo while also traveling at a steady pace.
  • Hill Start Assist — this helps keep your Grand Cherokee from rolling backward while parked on an uphill incline after you disengage your brakes to move. Enough force is applied to help you move up the hill easily without exerting too much extra effort.
  • Trailer Sway Control —this helps increase your Grand Cherokee’s grip on the road during challenging conditions, which helps to make handling on College Station streets both easier and safer.
  • High-Performance Brembo Brakes — Opt for the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk® or SRT® trim, and you’ll get Brembo brakes, too. These unique brakes utilize two-piece vented rotors, six-piston calipers, and 15-inch front rotors to offer improved stopping power compared to other Grand Cherokee models with standard brakes.
