Will Trailer Hitch Affect Automatic Liftgate Feature on 2018 Audi Q7


Hello. Looking at the Draw-tite 76076 for my 2018 Audi Q7 but wondering about the automatic liftgate. Will this feature still work after the hitch is installed?


Expert Reply:

The automatic liftgate feature on your 2018 Audi Q7 will indeed still operate with the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch # 76076 in place. With the hitch receiver sitting below the bumper of your Q7 you may just need to move your foot to either side of the receiver for the sensors to pick up your movement but beyond that its operation will not be affected at all.

This is an excellent Class III hitch with a nice hidden-crosstube design that allows for a sleek OEM appearance and a robust towing weight capacity of 7,700 pounds and a tongue weight limit of 770 pounds. You will also want to check the limits of the vehicle itself by looking at your owner's manual. You simply need to follow whichever limit is lower, the vehicle's or the hitch's.

I have attached an installation video on the Audi Q7 that you can also use for reference.
