2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Towing Safety Features

Towing a camper to the Indiana Dunes or up to Wisconsin for an epic ski weekend? The Grand Cherokee is available with the towing features to keep you safe and stable while towing on any road surface. Even in bad weather, advanced driver-assist features like the following ensure your tires grab the road surface, and your payload and steering are steady and balanced:

  • Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path Detection — This feature acts like an extra set of eyes to enhance visibility just where you need it. Automatic monitoring systems scan the surroundings and send alerts to the driver if objects or other vehicles get too close for comfort.
  • Parksense Rear Park Assist — Backing a trailer into a spot isn’t easy, but with Parksense you won’t have to worry. Via a crystal-clear rear camera, rear sensors inform you about the distance of pedestrians, objects, or other vehicles as you back up.
  • Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking — This technology scans for potential impact situations and automatically applies the brakes when it senses imminent risk.
