Recommended Trailer Hitch For 2017 Subaru Forester Turbo 2.0XT


I have a 2017 Subaru Forester 2.0XT Turbo and would like verify this hitch will fit my car. The only notes I see on your web site talk about fitting the non-turbo model. Thanks,

The trailer hitch I recommend for your 2017 Forester is the Draw-Tite, part # 75876. Per the included installation instructions, there are no restrictions for the Forester as far as being a Turbo. This is a Class lll trailer hitch and it has a 2-inch receiver opening. I recommend this hitch because it has many more options for accessories you can carry than a 1-1/4 inch receiver does.

If you plan on doing some towing you might be interested in 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 include a ball mount with the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, check out the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level.

If you are towing and need trailer wiring I recommend part # 118467.
