2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee Towing Technology

With the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee, it isn’t just a question of, “How much can the Grand Cherokee tow?” This formidable SUV also comes equipped with these additional towing technologies that make hauling easier and safer on Schuylkill Haven streets.

  • Hill Descent Control: This system senses when your Grand Cherokee is on a steep incline and will act to automatically apply the brakes accordingly. When you’re hauling a heavy load up or down a hill, this system will allow you to travel safely and steadily.
  • High-Performance Brembo Brake Systems: If you opt for either the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT® or Trackhawk® configuration, you can have your model equipped with these special high-performance brake systems from Brembo. These brakes use 15-inch front rotors and two-piece vented rotors, as well as six-piston calipers for superior braking.
  • Hill Start Assist: This next towing system works to keep your vehicle from rolling backward when you’ve taken your foot off the brakes while parked uphill. From the time between when you release the brake and put your foot down on the accelerator, Hill Start Assist pushes the Grand Cherokee with enough force so you have smooth movement driving up a hill.
  • Trailer Sway Control: This final towing technology system gives the Grand Cherokee superior grip when in challenging conditions. This helpful safety feature applies brake pressure on alternate wheels and throttles the engine in real-time in order to maintain vehicle stability.
