Re: Towed with my '14 JGC V8 (question inside)
I have a 2014 HEMI 2wd and tow a boat weighing about 6000 lbs and agree with your comments that the Jeep tows very well.
As for your question about using the engine to assist with braking, I found that taking it out of "Eco" mode provided this assistance. In addition, if you are coasting downhill, a quick tap of the brakes and the Jeep would downshift.
I found that the Jeep would downshift enough to hold the RPMs at about 3000. Usually that was enough to do the trick. Any more braking needed, I would need to use the brakes, but just making sure not to ride them.
