Does Trailer Hitch for 2019 Chrysler Pacifica Touring L Plus Affect Hands-Free Liftgate


Will this hitch affect the hands free tailgate feature of my 2019 Chrysler Pacifica Touring L Plus?


Expert Reply:

That's a good question, but you will absolutely still be able to use the hands-free liftgate on your 2019 Chrysler Pacifica Touring L Plus with the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 76046 installed. You will likely need to kick your foot to one side of the hitch receiver but that's all.

This is a great choice for a hitch on your '19 Pacifica because not only does it not require any drilling into your car's frame to install, but it also has a concealed crosstube, as you can see in the accompanying photos, so your vehicle will maintain its clean look. I have added a link to a video of this hitch being installed on a Pacifica for you to check out.

For wiring which will give your Touring L Plus a 4-way connector and allow you to power your trailer's lights you need Wiring Harness # 118712. I also highly recommend using Dielectric Grease for Electrical Connectors # 11755 to help prevent any type of corrosion in your connector; using it will increase your 4-way's durability and extend its lifespan.

I also recommend checking out Ball Mount Kit # 989900, which is for 2” hitches and may fulfill your towing needs in one tidy package; two ball mounts - one with a 3/4” rise or 2” drop and the other with a 2-3/4” rise or 4” drop – along with a 1-7/8” hitch ball, a 2” hitch ball, and a pin and clip.

You can use the link to the help article on ball mounts I've added to determine if this kit will give you the correct amount of drop or rise. If it does not, I have also added a link to our entire selection of ball mounts that fit a 2” hitch like the Draw-Tite # 76046 you asked about.
