Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 2013 Chevy Cruze


2013 chevy cruze 4dr eco model. You show two recievers that look the same only one is more and one is labled sport. Please advise.

The price difference and the name of the hitches are due to different manufacturers. Since both the Curt option, part # C11282, and the Draw-Tite option, part # 24882, are 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch receivers with a 200 lbs Tongue Weight capacity and 2,000 lbs Gross Towing Weight Capacity they are pretty much the same hitch.

I do recommend going with the Draw-Tite Sport Frame # 24882 though (the "Sport" is just part of the name of the hitch) because the Curt warranty requires that a Support Strap # 18050 be used if you are using it for any non-trailer loads like a bike rack or cargo carrier. Draw-Tite does not have this same requirement.

I have attached an installation video of the Draw-Tite on a similar 2013 Chevrolet Cruze that you can use as a reference.

If you let me know what you plan on using the trailer hitch receiver for I would be more than happy to make some recommendations for you.
