  • Hill Descent Control: Navigate hills with ease thanks to this system that automatically applies the brakes when a decline is detected.
  • High-performance Brembo Brake Systems: Experience two-piece vented rotors and six-piston front Brembo calipers on the Trailkhawk® and 15-inch front rotors and six-piston calipers on the SRT®.
