    2013 Brake Enhancements??

    I've read where the 2013 had brake enhancements. Since I tow with this vehicle I'd like to know exactly what those enhancements are, if anyone knows?

    Don't know, but one of the cheapest items you can do is replace your stock brake lines with steel braded for a better peddle feel. Depending on how old the fluid is, that would also be a good time to do a power flush of the brake system.

    Could it be the "Grade Hill Assist" function? I have a 2013 and on long down hills when I use the brakes, the engines downshifts to slow the vehicle. Grade Hill Assist flashes on the display when this happens. I have been told this was to help with braking when towing. My 2011 did not have this function, do not know if the 2012's had it.

    Possible pre load the brake system. If you quickly take your foot off the gas and hit the brake, it will boost pressure for a possible emergency stop reducing stopping distance.
