Hitch and Wiring Recommendations for 2017 Chevy Equinox


Will a tow package off a 2000 Sierra fit on a 2017 Chevy equinox


Expert Reply:

The tow package parts, or towing equipment from a 2000 GMC Sierra will not fit a 2017 Chevrolet Equinox. The trailer hitch and wiring are designed differently for each application, however there is a solution to tow with your Equinox. I recommend the etrailer Trailer Hitch # e98865. I like the finish on this hitch more than other because it's a flat black so it blends in on the bottom really well and hides dirt and scratches easily. It's a custom fit hitch, so there's not drilling or cutting required to get it installed.

If you need wiring you can use T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118264 if you have the tow package, and #118494 if not. The easiest way to tell if you have the tow package or not is to look for a plug on the driver's side of the rear hatch. The plug will be tucked behind the trim panel (the very back corner on the driver's side). If there is a gray connector that is open and not being used then it has the tow package.

For a ball mount I recommend the etrailer Ball Mount Kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts, 2 trailer hitch balls, and pins and clips so it can accommodate several different trailers.

I linked the products above as well as a few videos for you to check out of the install process.
