It's not supposed to be that loud. But, when the Hill Start Assist releases the brakes it does make some sounds at times. You might want to consider temporarily disabling it to see if that's what's going on.

kik It could the hill start assist. You can check the manual, disable it, and then see if that solved the problem.

This^ I've driven lots of larger pickups they all bang/clunk when you drop into reverse.

BadOleRoss I hear/feel the rear end load up when I go from park to reverse and the Jeep actually rises a little but there is no clunking sound of any kind when I release my foot off the brake and start backing.

Petalas82 No grinding noise or Clunking noise just sounds like the back brakes are releasing but very loud like dry gears. I was in the street leaving and my mom from the house said what was that noise.

Does it sound like a grinding noise? I have the same thing happening with mine & took it to the dealership to get it checked out....they claim that it's 'normal' & that the brakes are just getting 'broken in'. But yet when I had my black one (same model year, 2013), I never had that noise! But the dealership told me that if it doesn't go away over time, to bring it back in & they may end up replacing the brakes. Good to take it in & have it on record in case it gets worse or doesn't go away. If you take it in & they find something other than what my dealership told me, please let me know.
