Cause of "turbine-like" whine @ 75mph & ONLY under increased acceleration?

I have a 2012 Grand Cherokee Overland with ~75,000 miles. It has been used 3 summer seasons to tow our 26′ Travel Trailer throughout the SouthWest, PacWest and the Rockies. The vehicle runs awesome, shifts flawlessly, and in every other way acts fine. But Iíve noticed that when running at 75mph, as soon as I add a touch of gas, or the ACC (adaptive cruise control) does so automatically, I hear a ďturbine-likeĒ whine from the rear undercarriage. The rear passengers can definitely hear it the most however. As soon as the pressure is off the gas, it goes away. Itís not super annoying or anything (actually for a while it sounded cool), but Iím wondering if something is about to go wrong? I have always kept up with changing the transfer case, differential(s), trans fluids after each TT tow trip season-end. And upon each visual inspection the mechanic stated everything looked fine or that the fluid change wasnít even necessary (although it was changed anyway). So what do you think of an occasional whine only at 75mph (or similiar high speeds) that comes and goes based on further acceleration, but disappears once itís just having to maintain speed? (Like if on cruise control you would not hear it until climbing or recovering top speed after someone slow in front of you moves over and the ACC kicks back in to get up to the set speed). Any thoughts?

Re: Cause of "turbine-like" whine @ 75mph & ONLY under increased acceleration?

I wouldn't worry about it. Differential whine/howl is not uncommon on a lot of vehicles and not really a cause for concern. I don't think I've ever had a vehicle where I couldn't hear that to some degree. Hell, even my FWD Honda Accord has that sound.

I don't recall running across any thread on this forum where people have reported any type of drive line failure, much less one related to differential whine. With the laundry list of complaints on relatively minor things found out here, the forum would be lit up like a Christmas tree if that ever happened.
