Features for Easier Towing Around Port Lavaca 

While all of the Jeep Grand Cherokee’s power stems from its capable engines, there are more features that impact its towing prowess. The following features are standard or optional for your Aransas Pass drives: 

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