Easy to Install Brake Controller Recommendation for 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee


I have a 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee that I need a brake controller for. Ideally I'd have an easy install that does not require any wiring and also one that does not require drilling into my dash. I don't want an ugly box attached to my dash board if at all possible!

I have the perfect brake controller solution for you with the Curt Echo Mobile brake controller part # C51180. This controller requires zero wiring and also does not attach to the dash so you wouldn't have to modify your vehicle interior in any way either. This basically just plugs into an active 7-way trailer connector like you have at the rear of your 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee and once it's synced to a smart phone you are ready to tow.

I attached a review video for this controller for you to check out as well.

The Curt Echo Wireless Trailer Brake Controller will fit my Class C so...can I use this brake controller so that I can tow behind my 2007 Grand Vitara that is set up with your Blue Ox tow bar system and Curt tow plate which in turn would activate the brakes on GV?

Unfortunately the Echo wouldn't work to activate the brakes on your Grand Vitara. Vehicle brakes are wired differently so a trailer brake controller like this unfortunately just wouldn't work. You'll need to go with a flat tow supplemental braking system like the excellent Brake Buddy # HM39494 .
