Will a Trailer Hitch Block Automatic Liftgate Sensor on a 2017 Infiniti QX60


I have a 2017 Infiniti QX60 with a kick sensor in the back, underneath the vehicle. Will this receiver hitch work with that sensor?

It is possible that Curt trailer hitch # C13126 could partially block the motion sensor on your 2017 Infiniti QX60. You may find that it doesn't affect it at all or you might find that you will have to trigger the sensor in a certain place that is different than what you are used to. It seems to vary from vehicle to vehicle.

If you plan on doing some towing I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag.

If the ball mount kit does not have the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, use the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level.

And for trailer wiring I recommend # 119250KIT. With it you will not have to splice into the vehicle wiring for installation.
