Can Trailer Hitch for a 2001 Ford Windstar Fit a 2011 Chevy Cruze


Would this model, or another similar model fitting a 2001 Ford Windstar, fit on a 2011 Chevy Cruze? Thanks.


Expert Reply:

The hitch companies custom design the hitch so it fits a certain year make and model vehicle. In some instances, the same part number hitch will fit numerous model years of the same vehicle, with the hitches for the Honda Odyssey being an example.

This being said, a hitch designed for a 2001 Ford Windstar would not fit a 2011 Chevy Cruze.

We offer a hitch that's custom designed for the Cruze. If you're needing the hitch as an attachment point for a bike rack, I'd recommend the Draw-Tite Class I hitch, part # 24882. To tow, you will also need a ball mount. The 1-7/8 inch trailer ball is sold separately as part # 19256 or the 2 inch ball is part # 19258. You'd also need a trailer wiring harness, part # 118508. If you're planning on towing, I'd highly recommend checking your owner's manual for the towing capacity of the vehicle.

I've linked you to install videos and instructions for the hitch and the trailer wiring harness.
