Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2018 Acura MDX  


Hello. I have a 2018 Acura MDX looking for the best trailer hitch for it please what do you recommend? Will probably tow a light trailer at some point. Thanks.


Expert Reply:

The best trailer hitch for your 2018 Acura MDX is the Class III # e98840 because of its hidden design, robust towing capacity of 6,000 pounds, and the fact that it is made right here in the USA. I also really like the unique matte black finish on this particular hitch that gives it more of a rugged appearance and also helps to prevent any scratches.

This Class III hitch features a hidden-crosstube design where only the 2 inch receiver is visible behind the vehicle (see attached image). All of the hardware is included for a no-drill installation. I have attached an installation video that you can also use for reference.

Since you said you plan on doing some light towing you will also need to install a trailer wiring harness. For this I highly recommend the Tekonsha T-One # 118628 that will plug right into a factory port in the rear cargo area behind the driver's-side trim panel. This will provide you with a 4-Way connector to connect with and power a trailer's basic signal lights. This particular harness offers the highest amp capacity available for your Acura MDX.

I have again attached an installation video that you can check out.

Lastly in order to tow a trailer you will need a ball mount and hitch ball. I have attached a great article that explains how to choose the best one for your setup along with a link that will take you to our available selection.
