2014 GMC Terrain

We purchased a trailer hitch for a 2014 GMC Terrain, product number 13591 - Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2". It arrived before the anticipated delivery date and in good shape. The enclosed directions were excellent. The tools on the etrailer.com website were very useful too. The vehicle selector tool helped us find the right trailer hitch for the vehicle we have and let us know that it was "Confirmed to Fit". There was also an installation video link for the specific trailer hitch on the specified vehicle on the product description page. The video was about 4 minutes and very helpful. For example, the video shows how to clean out the weld nut attachment points, which was very necessary on our vehicle to get the bolts threaded into the holes. Overall excellent product and excellent service from etrailer.com. 850941

My order was processed and shipped in 2 hours! It arrived 2.5 business days later. Everything was there and fit. Everything etrailer did was perfect. Now for the install of the product... not fun... in all honesty e trailer should supply 12M x 1.0 metric tap. Because if i didn't randomly have one this would have never gone on. The threaded holes on the frame.this bolts into are so rusted and corroded you will never get the bolts in unless you re-tap the holes. Once you do that its pretty simple. Another tip if you are also doing the wire harness. Use the fishing wire for the bolts to help fish the wires. Works really nice. So do yourself a favor and order a 12Mx1.0 metric tap. You may also need a rubber malet to smack the hitch into place. Other than that its a very sturdy, well made, heavy-duty product. No regrets. Would definitely recommend. 830185

Great video for installation how to. It was exactly as shown (especially the part where you need a wire brush to clear the mounting holes of debris before trying to thread the bolts). I would also recommend using WD-40 a few times to help loosen the material in the holes as well. I did the install myself in the garage without lifting the truck, a second person may have helped spped up the install. 820694

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2014 Chevy Equinox
    Trailer hitches including Curt hitch # 13591 for your 2014 Chevy Equinox include the hitch itself and the installation hardware. Everything else is sold separately. This is done so that customer do not have to purchase a whole package and end up with parts they do not need. I also recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball,...

Some of the Equinox's will require the holes to be enlarged to 17/32" to accept the 1/2" bolts. You can aquire a 17/32" drill bit from most local hardware stores if you don't already have one.

The wiring harness that will adapt your 4-way to a 7-way is the # ETBC7. This kit will come with everything you need to equip your Equinox with a 7-way and 4-way connector.

  • Does Fish Wire Come With Hitch Installation Kit?
    Typically, our hitches will provide the fish wire with the hitch depending on the installations needs. I looked at all the hitches for your 2013 GMC Terrain and all show a fish wire included in the instructions. If you need replacement wire or find a hitch that doesn't include it but you think it would be handy to have we do have several option right here on our website. I have included the link to all the fish wire applications for your convenience.

  • Best Trailer Hitch for 2017 Chevrolet Equinox
    Both the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 13591 and the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76028 are excellent choices for your vehicle and are confirmed to fit, and there are advantages to both trailer hitches. When the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver is installed, it is pretty well hidden, the cross tube is barely visible. The Curt has a rounded design, fits with the contour of the vehicle. What's good about this hitch is it's almost flush with the bumper fascia, so you don't...

  • Solutions for Green Wire of Trailer Wiring harness part # 118494 Not being Long Enough
    We had one customer who installed the # 118494 on a similar Equinox as yours and was able to tuck the green wire behind the weatherstripping at the bottom of the tailgate to get enough of the wire to not need to extend it. Otherwise you could easily extend it with double bonded 12 gauge wire part # 12-2-1 which is sold by the foot.

  • Do Torque Specs for Installation of a Trailer Hitch on a 2003 Saturn Vue have to be Followed
    On a 2993 Saturn Vue you should be fishwiring in 1/2 inch bolts and blocks through the frame and to the bolt holes on top of the hitch as indicate in step 5. The bolts that get fishwired in are 1/2 inch carriage bolts. It is important to get the bolts to the proper torque spec. If they are too tight you can damage the hitch and vehicle. If they are not tight enough you could loose the hitch. Most auto parts stores will loan out tools. You will need a torque wrench that goes up to at...

  • Can Trailer Hitch Be Installed on Vehicle with Rust on Frame
    If the vehicle frame has surface rust where the hitch would mount that's pretty normal and would be fine. If the frame has enough rust that the frame is basically starting to deteriorate then I can't recommend you install a hitch. The Curt hitch part # 13591 would be the most popular and best option we have. I attached an install video for this for you to check out as well. If at all possible I would remove surface rust with sand paper and spray paint over to keep it from spreading.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2010 GMC Terrain Towing Kayak Trailer
    For your 2010 GMC Terrain I would still recommend going with a 2 inch hitch like the Curt part # 13591 as it will have more capacity (even though you don't really need it), but 2 inch hitches have more accessories made for them so it would give you greater future hitch accessory flexibility. For trailer wiring you would then want the part # 56094. Install video for both attached. Since you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2006 Saturn Vue
    The difference is that the 2006 Saturn Vue Red Line models require noticeable rear fascia trimming when installing a trailer hitch. The Red Line models also have a lower suspension.

    I checked the various instructions for the hitches available for your 2013 GMC Terrain. The fascia door can only be reinstalled after a hitch is installed on the Chevy Equinox but not the GMC Terrain. GM may have an alternate cover that you can get from a dealer that is deeper and will fit over the hitch. But what I recommend is to go with a Class III hitch like you wanted, # 13591 is a great choice, and then use a hitch cover such as # AUT-GMC2-C which will look pretty awesome. I have...

    The wiring for the 2011 Chevrolet Equinox, part # 118494, is a custom fit and there should be no need to reprogram the vehicle computer. Reprogramming would also not be necessary after the trailer hitch installation. The wiring harness simply plugs in behind both tail lights, and because the wiring draws its power from the vehicle battery, the vehicle circuits are protected from back feed or overload. In the event of an overload, the black converter box actually turns itself off to...

  • Threading Bolts for a 13591 Hitch for 2006 Chevy Equinox
    Vehicles tend to pick up dirt and road debris beneath the vehicle, so I would suggest cleaning the weldnuts really well. Soaking the holes with WD40 and using a wire brush works well. We have found that a battery terminal brush works great. We also have an installation video on that particular hitch on a 2005 Chevy Equinox, which is very similar to your vehicle and may help.

    The tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch is one thing but you also have to consider the tongue weight capacity of your 2015 Chevy Equinox. According to the vehicle owner's manual the 4 cylinder models are rated for 1,500 pounds gross trailer weight and the tongue weight should be 10 to 15 percent of the gross trailer weight. So at 1,500 pounds 15 percent would be 225 pounds. This is about 50 pounds short of where it would have to be with a 50 pound carrier and 225 pound bike. If...

The blocks do not go in the frame any certain way. Once you start to tighten them the block will turn as well until it hits the side of the frame allowing you to tighten the bolt without it spinning.
