Chevrolet Cruze Trailer Hitch Questions and Answers


  • Recommended Trailer Hitch For 2014 Chevrolet Cruze LTZ With RS Package
  • The Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # 24882, is a confirmed fit for your 2014 Chevrolet Cruze LTZ with the RS package. This is a Class l hitch and it has a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. I have attached a drawing that shows the hitch receiver along with the fascia. Because of the lower back bumper on the LTZ, you will need a drawbar with a rise to accommodate an accessory like a bike rack or a cargo carrier. If you plan on towing a small trailer with your Cruze,...

  • Hitch Recommendation for 2014 Chevy Cruze that Provides Smallest Distance from Hitch To Bumper
  • For a hitch that would have the hitch opening as far back towards the rear of your 2014 Chevy Cruze as possible you would want the Draw Tite Hitch part # 24882 as it is confirmed to fit your vehicle and only had a distance of 3-3/4 inches from the hitch pin hole to the rear of the bumper. See install video that I attached. The most popular bike rack we offer that we had a chance to demo on a Cruze just like yours is the Swagman XTC-2 Bike rack part # S64670. See attached video.

  • Hitch Installation on 2013 Chevrolet Cruze and Use of Hitch-Mount Bike Rack
  • Three hitches are offered for your 2013 Chevrolet Cruze, including the Curt # C11282 that you referenced. All are light-duty 1-1/4-inch Class I types that can carry up to 2 bikes (no matter what the bike rack's capacity is). All will install in an essentially identical manner since they all will use the same mounting points on your Cruze's frame. The link provided will show you all three. Two of these, the Draw-Tite and Hidden Hitch models, are both made by the same company, Cequent Performance...

  • Trailer Hitch And Wiring Recommendation For 2012 Chevrolet Cruze
  • From the research I found, the 2012 Chevrolet Cruze has a towing capacity of 1,000 lbs. The Curt Hitch, part # C112823, will work for you. This is a Class l hitch and has a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. All non-trailer loads - bike racks, cargo carriers and so forth - should be supported with stabilizing straps like part # 18050. Failure to properly support these loads will void your hitch warranty from Curt. To tow a trailer you will need a hitch ball. For a 1-7/8 inch ball I recommend...

  • Does the Curt Hitch part # C112821 Come with All Necessary Installation Hardware
  • The Curt Hitch part # C112821 that you referenced comes with everything needed to install the hitch on your 2013 Chevy Cruze. It comes with 4 square hole spacers, 4 carriage bolts, 4 flange nuts and a 7/16 inch pull wire. I attached installation instructions plus an install video for you to check out also. This hitch comes with a ball mount and ball plus a pin and clip, so to complete your towing setup you may also be interested in the Curt Wiring Harness part # C56214.

  • Will Magna-Flow Aftermarket Exhaust Tips Affect Hitch Fit on 2012 Chevrolet Cruze
  • I do not see any fits for Magna-Flow complete aftermarket exhaust systems offered for your 2012 Chevrolet Cruze so I presume you are referring only to exhaust tips rather than a complete aftermarket exhaust system. The installation of any of the hitch receivers offered for your vehicle should be unaffected by the exhaust tips installed on your Cruze. Many vehicles require for hitch installation temporary lowering of the exhaust to provide better access to the hitch connection points...

  • Is Bumper or Fascia Trimming Required to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2012 Chevy Cruze
  • To install Curt trailer hitch # C11282, you will not need to make any modifications to the bumper or rear fascia. You will need to temporarily lower the exhaust by simply removing the affected area off of its hangers while supporting the pipes with a strap. And there is a heat shield that has to be modified as well but it is under the vehicle and not visible. Once installed the receiver will be below the rear fascia. I have included a link to a video showing installation of the hitch...

  • Options for Carrying 4 Bikes on a 2014 Chevy Cruze
  • The difference in the shipping weight for the Hidden Hitch part # 60299 and the Curt Hitch part # C11282 that is also a confirmed fit for your 2014 Chevy Cruze is due to the different side bracket plate designs. The Curt hitch has much larger brackets attached to the cross tubes with more material and that is why it weighs about 10 lbs more. All the hitches available for your vehicle are Class I hitches. These hitches are limited to only carrying 2 bikes due to the limited weight capacity...

  • Compatibility of Curt Class I Receiver # C11282 on 2012 Chevy Cruze with RS Package
  • According to Curt Manufacturing, the # C11282 is compatible with all models of the Chevy Cruze, including those equipped with the RS package. If you will be using the hitch for a bike rack or a cargo carrier, keep in mind that the warranty requirements of the hitch require that a stabilizing strap like part # 18050 is required. The Draw-Tite hitch, part # 24882 has no such requirement, which is why I would recommend it over the Curt model. I have linked you to installation instructions...

  • Bike Rack Clearance Provided by Curt Class I Receiver # C11282 Installed on 2013 Chevy Cruze
  • According to my contact at Curt Manufacturing, the distance from the rear-most hitch attachment point to the hitch pin hole in the receiver is 5-1/2 inches. We have not yet completed an installation of that hitch on a 2013 Cruze, but with this measurement, we can determine if your bike rack will clear your bumper. If you find the rear most hitch attachment hole in the frame of your Cruze, and measure rearward 5-1/2 inches, you can see where the hitch pin hole will sit in relation...

  • This question has come up before and a colleague of mine found out from the manufacturer that the Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24882 will fit a 2012 Chevy Cruze with the RS package. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. If you will be doing some towing, the correct ball mount is # 3593 and you can use pin and clip # PC2. For a 1-7/8 inch diameter ball, use # 19256 and for a 2 inch diameter ball use # 19258. For trailer wiring use # 118508. I have included some...

  • Will Hidden Hitch Class I Hitch # 60299 Fit 2011 Chevy Cruze Without Drilling or Modifications
  • The Hidden Hitch Class I 1-1/4 Inch Hitch, part # 60299, will fit your 2011 Chevrolet Cruze. The installation of the hitch will not require any drilling or modification of the vehicles undercarriage. I am including a link to the installation instructions on the Hidden Hitch. Since you will be using the hitch for only a hitch bike rack and not for towing, I would recommend to look at the Draw-Tite Class I 1-1/4 Inch Hitch, part # 24882. This is the same hitch as the # 60299 Hidden Hitch,...

  • Can a 1-1/4 to 2 Inch Hitch Adapter be Used with Curt Trailer Hitch C11282 on a 2012 Chevy Cruze
  • As you have mentioned, the Curt trailer hitch # C11282 (and other brands) for the 2012 Chevy Cruze have 1-1/4 inch receivers. Because of this, to use a 2 inch accessory, you will need to use a hitch adapter, # HTAD. However, this will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch by 50 percent. The Curt hitch has a tongue weight capacity of 200 pounds, by using the adapter, it is reduced to 100 pounds. This means that the combined weight of the bike rack and bikes cannot exceed 100...

  • Recommendation for Carrying Three 60 lb. Downhill Bikes with a 2012 Chevrolet Cruze
  • I checked with our hitch suppliers and each one says that their hitch will fit all models of the 2012 Chevrolet Cruze including the RS model. All of the hitches for the Cruze are Class I hitches and are limited to carrying two bikes only. The reason for this limitation is that the extra torque created by hanging a third bike that far away from the back of the vehicle can cause damage to the bike rack and bikes, hitch or vehicle frame. We do have a solution though. I would recommend...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2011 Chevy Cruze
  • The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 24859, does not require a stabilization strap when carrying non-trailer loads such as a bike rack. But it is a good idea on a class I trailer hitch just because it relieves some of the stress on the hitch. If you decide to use a strap, you can use # 18050. Since this is a class I trailer hitch, you will need to make sure your bike rack is compatible. Some racks cannot be used on a class I trailer hitch. If you find you do need a rack that is compatible...
