Features to Make Towing Easier Around Washington 

The 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV’s power originates from its hefty engines, but they can’t take all the credit for its towing abilities. These standard and optional features give your Grand Cherokee extra strength: 

 

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