Features for Safer Towing near Stanley

While not every new Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV (and not every other Jeep model for that matter) is best known for its towing capacity, there are so many different reasons to choose one Grand Cherokee model over the other and just as many reasons to choose the Grand Cherokee over the competition. Among these reasons are the below towing assistive technologies:

  • Hill Descent Control — applies your Grand Cherokee’s brakes as needed, based on whether you’re on a steep hill or a flat surface; 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 you’re parked on an uphill include. When you release the brake pedal and press the gas, this system offers enough force to help you move forward up the hill easily and effortlessly.
  • Trailer Sway Control — improves your SUV’s grip and traction over challenging road or weather conditions, which helps make conquering Watford City roadways easier and safer.
  • High-Performance Brembo Brakes — these are available on select Grand Cherokee models, including the Trackhawk® and SRT® trim configurations. These advanced systems use two-piece vented rotors, six-piston calipers, and 15-inch front rotors respectively.
