Rugged, Matte Black Finish

The sturdy steel construction is protected with a matte black finish for added durability. This unique powder coating gives etrailer hitches a carbide-like appearance and a rugged look that sets them apart from traditional glossy hitches. In addition to being rust and corrosion resistant, the tough matte coating hides dirt, scuffs, and dings better than a glossy finish.

2021 Kia Telluride

So far so good. Install really wasn't that hard, the videos and instructions made it much easier. Definitely grab some silicone spray for the exhaust, and those couple bolts over the exhaust are tough to reach. All in all, I am pleased! Stoked to take the bikes out!




by:

I would highly recommend this product and company. Ordering was simple and E-trailer kept me up to date with details concerning delivery and follow up once delivered. The installation instructions have the right amount of detail, and the installation went off without a hitch. (dad joke). My only recommendation during installation would be to use a 3/8 pin to hold the passenger side up and in place temporarily, align and secure the driver side with the hardware and then secure the passenger side with the hardware-gentle tapping of the horizontal bolts was necessary. Hitch looks great on my 2022 Telluride and the complete installation took an hour and 15 minutes




by:

Great hitch that looks better and 1/5th the cost for the OEM hitch, plus the instructions made the install a breeze.

2021 Ford Edge

The instructional video says about one hour. I am an absolute beginner and it took me about 3 hours. A few tips. Silicone lube helps a lot with removal of the exhaust restrainers. The two restrainers nearest the rear passenger side tire were the hardest until I realized I could get these off with my bare hands. Wasted a lot of time trying to get a pry bar in position back there. The two horizontally positioned bolts were very hard to push through on that side as well. Use some lube. Also there is an aluminum heat shield above the exhaust which interferes with getting your bolt washer combo level as you push them through on this side. You may need to tap at this a bit to push it up as you muscle the bolt through. The guys in the video doesn’t trim the panel, but if you follow the measurements in the instructions and use a box cutter with a straight edge it works out fine. Haven’t towed with it yet. But install was manageable for someone like me with zero experience working on cars.




by:

Easy to install. Video was exactly what to do. Only thing I installed plastic cover that we cut out after hitch was installed and it was easy too. Looks better with it installed. Thank you




by:
2021 Kia Telluride

The YouTube video of the installation and the printed instructions were spot on. There was no need for any extra tools and amazingly no drilling necessary. The hitch lined up perfectly.




by:

First off excellent customer service and follow through!
Second the hitch has a fantastic fit and instructions are right on point.
Was very easy install.
Thanks e-trailer made this upcoming a ski trip easier!




by:
2020 Kia Telluride

The video instructions were very good. More detail could be added regarding inserting the long bolts on the side with the muffler. The flashing just above the muffler makes it more difficult to insert these bolts. I lightly tapped the bolt through with a long screw driver and hammer. Other than that it was as smooth as the video described. Took me and my son about an hour and 45 min.




by:
2021 Kia Telluride

Fast delivery. Excellent installation video. Quality parts.




by:
2022 Kia Telluride

the fit was exact. All the holes lined up and it is a solid hitch. The hardest part of the install was getting the rubber exhaust hangers back on the pins. Maybe I'm just getting old LOL




by:

Easy to install! It took me about 45 minutes. Saves hundreds in comparison to getting from the dealer. Great product.

Solidly built, strong installation, and hidden.

  • Trailer hitch receiver and towing capacity for 2020 and 2021 Kia Telluride
    I am not sure how Kia came up with the tongue weight on the Telluride, however, I did confirm that the owner's manual for the 2020 model says max tongue weight of 351lbs, and the owner's manual for the 2021 model says max tongue weight of 500lbs as you mentioned. Kia just states that the 2021 Telluride has enhanced towing capabilities and also was upgraded to a 7 pin trailer connector. It sounds like you plan to do some towing. No matter which model year you have, you can install the etrailer...

  • How to Find the Tongue Weight on a 2022 Kia Telluride
    When I looked up the online owner's manual for your 2022 Kia Telluride they have the max trailer weight ratings listed as 1,650 lbs for a trailer without brakes but 5,000 lbs for a trailer with brakes. Since vehicle manufacturers typically rate the tongue weight rating at 10% of the trailer weight I would assume you can carry up to 500 lbs for tongue weight on your vehicle but you really need to contact your local Kia dealer for confirmation since it doesn't look like they give a specific...

    As far as height clearance goes all of the trailer hitches that fit your 2022 Kia Telluride will be similar.

Not only is the wiring itself reliable, but I've heard from our installers that they prefer the T-One installs because they seem to be a bit more solid with all of the connections. To mount your 4-Way connection next to your hitch receiver I recommend picking up the mounting brackets # 18144 and # C57202. If you don't already...

The trailer will also make it much easier for loading as it uses bunks rather than a complicated rack mount and the lower height makes it much safer to load and unload the Kayaks.

  • Which Trailer Hitch for 2022 Kia Telluride
    The hitches available for the 2022 Kia Telluride do have a very similar appearance. The Draw-Tite # DT32RR and Curt # C13420 use a glossy powder coat finish, while the etrailer brand # e45ZR uses a matte finish that I feel makes the hitch less visible. The etrailer # e45ZR and the Curt # C13420 have a higher tongue weight capacity (750 lbs vs 500 lbs for the Draw-Tite # DT32RR). Both the etrailer brand and the Curt hitch are manufactured in the US.
