Recommended Hitch That Does Not Require Bumper Cutting for 2022 Hyundai Palisade


Looking for a hitch for a 2022 Palisade. I have seen some where the bumper has to be cut. These all look similar. Does the bumper need to be cut in order to install these? I would like to avoid it. Thanks.

None of the hitches available for your 2022 Hyundai Palisade require trimming of the bumper. They may, however, require a little trimming of an underbody panel. Out of those available, I recommend the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e95ZR.

This is a Class III hitch with a 2" receiver which will be great for any accessories or towing you might do. It has a maximum gross trailer weight of 5,000 lbs and maximum tongue weight of 750 lbs. It is also compatible with weight distribution. It features a matte black powder coat finish for added durability. This finish also helps hide dirt and dings better than a glossy finish.

If you plan on doing some towing, I recommend adding the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118784. This will give you a 4-way connection to power your trailer's signal lights. For a ball mount, the etrailer Ball Mount Kit #989900 is a great choice. This comes with a 1-7/8" and 2" ball, along with a ball mount bag to store everything in.

I have attached some installation and review videos that you can check out.
