Draw-Tite Tested Tough

Draw-Tite Tested Tough

Draw-Tite's Tested Tough program provides testing standards far superior to those outlined by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), the go-to source for engineering professionals.

Each Draw-Tite trailer hitch receiver undergoes extensive fatigue testing and static testing with the ball mount that is either supplied or recommended for use with that particular hitch, thus ensuring results that are applicable to real life use. Fatigue testing is also conducted on hitches rated for use with weight-distribution systems.

In addition, Draw-Tite performs static testing on a simulated automobile, as opposed to the rigid fixture used for SAE testing, resulting in a more true-to-life scenario. Technical Support

At we're committed to the products we sell, and to our customers. Our experienced and knowledgeable staff are available via both phone and email to address your questions and concerns for the lifetime of your hitch. The technicians at etrailer perform hitch installations on a daily basis, making them a valuable resource for do-it-yourselfers. The one-on-one, personal service you'll receive comes straight from an expert in the towing and automotive field. We've installed it, we've wired it and we've towed with it, so whatever your question, we can answer it.

2018 Chevrolet Cruze

I have been happy with how the hitch installed and the overall quality of the product. Etrailer install videos were a big help and made my decision to buy this product easy. The video was not just a generic video it actually showed how to install on my Chevy Cruze. My wife uses the hitch to tow around her kayak trailer.

2018 Chevrolet Cruze

Great Hitch, and instructions provided were pretty good. There are some fasteners in the rear wheel area that are not clearly identified in the instructions, but not hard to figure it out. Pictures of the install attached. I did have to remove a tiny bit of excess body seam sealer from the factory that was in the way of the bolted flange, but not difficult to do, just do a test fit before you put the bumper on to verify it all fits up correctly.


The hitch receiver was shipped quickly and the instructions were very clear and to the point. Much less complicated than the [online]l hitch receiver that most of us probably saw before coming here. etrailer coming in clutch once again!

2017 Chevrolet Cruze

Out of the box and installed by the dealership in less than an hour. Fits the 2017 Chevy Cruze Diesel. Used to attach a bike rack carrier.


Easy to install. Took about 45 minutes. Good fitment and sturdy enough to do what I wanted


Superb instructions! Was able to install in one hour. Very clean look.

2016 Chevrolet Cruze

second hitch i bought from etrailer , the fit was great install easy & instructions easy to follow . it took me about 2 hours


I received my hitch in a timely manner.
hitch was not damaged or scratched While being shipped. I did the install myself in about 1 hour, very simple. I did have to cut the fascia to fit the hitch. I really like how it looks.


Hitch order was processed and arrived quickly.

the installation video twice and had this installed in less than an hour, with ten minutes spent looking for the T15 bit that I dropped.

Excellent service and am very happy with the appearance and ease of installation.


I have a 2018 Chevy Cruze sedan diesel. The instructions were incomplete. There was no mention of four additional screws or taking the tail lights off.

The product itself fit perfectly and looks good, the receiver is under the bumper so no bashed shins.

2016 Chevrolet Cruze

Good hitch for 2016 Chevy Cruze. Easy to install using the video for guidance. Hitch is hidden behind plastic fascia. Attached to metal bumper bolts so it’s well supported. I recommend this over the hitch that bolts directly to the frame.


Excellent product and even better service. E trailer made it easy for me to figure out the best trailer for my car, and provided suggestions and recommendations as to how best install the hitch. I have had the hitch installed for over a year now, toting mountain bikes and a pop-up camper all over the USA. A fantastic buy!

Chevrolet Cruze

After a year, The trailer hitch and wring harness are still in perfect condition and have never failed me. The video instructions on the site were very helpful in installing both systems and took about 1.5 hours to install. One of the greatest upgrades to my cruze I have done to date.


How to install was a great help. I made a pole to attach to the trailer hitch to carry a canoe

Chevrolet Cruze

The hitch receiver was exactly as advertised. I'm not a hands-on guy for most auto repairs or things like that, but this was extremely easy and took 90 minutes. My Chevy Cruze had a few more screws on the underside to remove than the video showed, but they were easy to identify and remove.

2016 Chevrolet Cruze

It fits perfectly on my 2016 Cruze.

2017 Chevrolet Cruze

Got a trailer hitch for my 2017 Cruze. Great quality! It couldn't be simpler to install. It's my second trailer hitch for different cars. I'll continue doing business with etrailer.

2017 Chevrolet Cruze

I bought this bolt in hitch receiver after my previous car was totaled. I installed it in approximately 2 hours, while wearing a leg brace. It looks ok and it’s not showing any rust after a year in Minnesota. Couldn’t be happier with the product or the install.

2018 Chevrolet Cruze

Very easy to install. Looked well made. Arrived a day earlier than expected. Great job!


This is an excellent product. I used it for a bike rack and carried two or three bikes for hundreds of miles last year no problems.

2016 Chevrolet Cruze

Great product and very fast delivery. It was shipped the same day on the weekend! I have already installed the hitch using your videos.

2017 Chevrolet Cruze

Worked and installed just as advertised.

2017 Chevrolet Cruze

Haven't installed it yet but delivery was very fast and product looks as it should and should serve my needs for light towing.


Fit absolutely perfect a squirl could probably put this on the hardest part was gathering the tools and all the little annoying bolts/clips love it sonfar the real test will be when i tow with it so far so good


Great job. Was received in a timely man ner.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2016 Chevy Cruze with 200 lb Tongue Weight Capacity
    The Draw Tite hitch part # 24943 is confirmed as a fit for your 2016 Chevy Cruze and has a 200 lb tongue weight capacity. You would need to verify that your vehicle has at least the same tongue weight capacity in the owners manual and that the weight of your carrier and wheelchair are also under both capacities.

  • Installation of Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch on 2018 Chevy Cruze
    We do have a video of the Draw-Tite hitch you purchased, part # 24943, being installed onto a 2017 Chevy Cruze. I've linked it to this page for you, as well as the install details. Despite the difference in model years the installation process on the 2017 shown in the video is basically the same as your 2018.

  • Does Rear Bumper Get Trimmed to Install Draw Tite 24943
    You need to trim the rear bumper fascia to install the Draw Tite # 24943 on a Chevy Cruze. You can see this in the attached install video. The actual bumper is not cut or trimmed though.

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendation for 2016 Chevy Cruze LT
    For your 2016 Chevy Cruze the hitch I recommend is the Draw Tite part # 24943 as it is most hidden and would have the best ground clearance. For trailer wiring I would then recommend the Tekonsha kit part # 118696 as it's easy to install and has a very reliable converter box.

  • Recommended Hitch And Cargo Carrier To Carry An Electric Wheel Chair On A 2018 Chevrolet Cruze
    For your 2018 Chevrolet Cruze, I recommend checking out the: -20x47 Reese Cargo Carrier for 1-1/4" Hitches - Steel # 63155. This is a cargo carrier measures 49-1/2" long x 21-1/2" wide x 5-1/2" tall, has a maximum weight capacity of 300-lbs, and will fit into any class I and class II trailer hitch. As far as a ramp also being available, that is not going to be an option, unfortunately. Finally, if you're also needing a trailer hitch for your Cruze, I recommend the Draw-Tite Sportframe...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2017 Chevy Cruze Sedan with Diesel Motor
    Curt has not performed a test fit for hitch # C11439 on a 2017 Chevy Cruze sedan with diesel motor so it is not a confirmed fit. But you can use Draw-Tite hitch # 24943 since it mounts in the same place as the bumper beam. I have linked the installation instructions for you. If you want to use the hitch for an accessory such as a bike rack or cargo carrier then you have to make sure the accessory is rated for use with a Class I trailer hitch. Also, with a bike rack, you are limited to...

  • Best Place to Install a Trailer Hitch on a 2017 Chevrolet Cruze
    In order to have the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 24943 installed on your 2017 Chevrolet Cruze you have a few different options. You can take it to a local mechanic as most would be qualified to do so but the best place that would have the most experience would be an RV dealer with a service center. If you like, you can show the potential shop the install video/instructions I have attached for you and I'm sure they would be able to give you a definitive yes or no...

  • Available Trailer Hitch Receivers and Hardware for 2016 Chevrolet Cruze
    There are two Class I trailer hitch receivers with a 2,000 pound towing capacity available for your 2016 Chevrolet Cruze. The Draw-Tite Sport Frame # 24943 and the Curt # C11439. If you're looking for a hitch I suggest the Draw-Tite because it does not require the use of a stabilization strap, # 18050, for non-trailer loads like the Curt does. If you only need the hardware to install either hitch the part is # RHK. You will need to put in the part number and manufacturer of the hitch...

I recommend the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class I - 1-1/4" # 24943 for that vehicle. I've attached a video of this installation.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch For 2018 Chevy Cruze
    Trailer hitches are given a class rating based on their maximum weight capacity and receiver opening size. The classes range from Class I which has the lowest capacity (2000lbs and under) and a 1-1/4" x 1-1/4" opening to Class V which has the highest capacity (around 20,000lbs) and, typically, a 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" opening.. The towing capacity of a Cruze is only near 1000 lbs (check owners manual). Due to the towing capacity of the Cruze we are only able to offer trailer hitches with 1-1/4"...

If you will be using this hitch for a bike rack or other accessory, there is nothing further you need. I've linked the page to the most popular bike racks and cargo carriers to help.

We have the 2016 Chevy Cruze Limited listed separate fit guide listing, as if it is a different vehicle all together, not just a different trim model.

  • Correct Ball Mount Drawbar for Draw-Tite Class I Trailer Hitch on 2017 Chevy Cruze
    So when it comes to ball mounts (drawbars) for Class I trailer hitches, the manufacturers actually design them to be used with specific ball mounts. You mentioned a Draw-Tite hitch for your 2017 Chevy Cruze but I couldn't find the one you purchased from us to determine if you had a sedan or a hatchback, so you'll need to match up your hitch with the correct ball mount. And just to be thorough I'll also add the trailer wiring you need as that is different depending on if you have a sedan...

  • Recommended Hitch Mounted Bike Rack With Rear Bumper Clearance on a 2017 Chevy Cruze LT
    With the Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24943, you have 5 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the farthest part of the bumper. The Thule DoubleTrack Pro XT Bike Platform Rack # TH92BJ doesn't offer enough clearance for that. For a rack better suited for your vehicle, I recommend the Swagman Semi 2.0 2-Bike Platform Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting # S64686. This rack has a measurement of 8 inches from the center of the hitch pin when folded up and 15-1/4 inches when folded...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Wiring Harness Ball Mount and Trailer Ball for 2016 Chevy Cruze
    For your 2016 Chevy Cruze, I'd recommend the Draw-Tite Class I hitch, part # C11439. The # 24943 you'd looked at would be a great hitch, but it's much more difficult and time consuming to install. If you'll be towing with the hitch, you'll need a trailer wiring harness like # 118696. For a ball mount, use # C45521 and a # PC2 hitch pin. For a 1-7/8 inch hitch ball, use # A-80 or # A-82 for a 2 inch ball.

To carry 4 bikes you will need to install a roof rack and carry 2 bikes on your roof.
