Features for Easier Towing Around Normal

While all of the Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV’s power stems from its capable engines, they can’t take all the credit for its towing prowess. The following features are standard or optional to give your Grand Cherokee more muscle:

  • Trailer Sway Control —improves your SUV’s grip on the road in challenging conditions, which helps make handling on Champaign roadways easier and safer.
  • Hill Descent Control — applies the brakes accordingly when you’re on a steep hill. This makes it easier to tow heavy cargo while traveling at a steady pace.
  • Hill Start Assist — keeps your Grand Cherokee from rolling backward if you disengage the brakes while parked on an uphill incline. When you release the brake pedal and press the accelerator, this system provides enough force to help you move forward up the hill with ease.
  • High-Performance Brembo Brakes — are available for the Grand Cherokee Trackhawk® and SRT® configurations. These systems use two-piece vented rotors, six-piston calipers, and 15-inch front rotors respectively.
