Rugged, Matte Black Finish

The sturdy steel construction is protected with a matte black finish for added durability.

In addition to being rust and corrosion resistant, the tough matte coating hides dirt, scuffs, and dings better than a glossy finish.

Video Transcript for etrailer.com Trailer Hitch Inststallation - 2019 Kia Sorento

Today on our 2019 Kia Sorento we're going to take a look at and also show you how to install the etrailer.com custom fit Class 3 trailer hitch receiver. This offers the matte black finish and a 2" by 2" receiver tube opening.Now here's what your hitch is going to look like installed. As you can see, you're going to have a tube that comes across here to your receiver tube opening and a shorter tube on this side. This helps it to go up and over our exhaust so we don't have any interference issues. This is a Class 3 hitch, gives us a 2" by 2" receiver tube opening. It's an extremely versatile hitch.

Just about any type of hitch accessory that they make is likely to come in a Class 3 variety. You're going to secure those in place using this 5/8 diameter pin hole you can see here on the side. That passes all the way through. There's a good amount of room around there. Whether you're just going to use a standard pin and clip or you want to upgrade to a locking hitch pin or anti-rattle device, should have plenty of room to get that in place.Safety chain connection points, you can see they're plate style.

Nice large opening here. Should get any type chain connected that we really want. The biggest difference you're going to see with the etrailer hitch versus other hitches available for the Sorento is going to be in the finish itself. As you can see, we've used an upgraded finish on our hitch. It provides it with more of a matte texture.

It blends in really nicely with the back of the vehicle, with the trim panel back here. With other hitches, you're going to see a higher gloss finish. Sometimes those can stand out. We've also found that this finish is more resilient to the scratches and dings that we often see on hitches.Now as far as weight ratings are concerned, the hitch is going to give us a 750 pound tongue weight rating. That's the maximum downward force we can put at our receiver tube opening.

We have a 5,000 pound gross trailer weight rating. That's going to be the total weight of our trailer and anything that we load up on it. The Kia, though, you do want to check the owner's manual on it to see what its tow rating is and be sure not to exceed that. Also, unlike the CURT hitch, with the etrailer hitch we don't have to use a stabilization strap.Now a couple measurements you'll find helpful when it comes time to select ball mounts, bike racks, and hitch cargo carriers will be from the ground to the inside top edge of our receiver tube opening we've got about 13". Then from the center of our hitch pin hole to the outermost edge of our bumper it's about 4-1/2". With that inside top edge of the receiver tube opening being at 13", I think it would be a good idea to choose items with a raise in the shank just to give you better ground clearance.Now to begin the install side, you need to get your spare tire lowered down, we're just going to remove ours completely. We'll put it back up after we have our hitch in place. We're going to use either our tools in the trunk here, or we can use a 21mm socket. It's a little quicker if we use a socket. We also want a flat blade screwdriver. We'll open up this back hatch area. Right down here you want to remove this cap. That will give us access to the nut. We need to loosen that up and allow our spare tire to be lowered down.The next step we need to take care of is getting our cover lowered. There's a little panel here. We've got three push pin fasteners, one, two, and three. We want to remove those. We'll use a flat blade screwdriver. Then we'll use a 14mm socket with an extension. You can see this pocket here and the one here. Got two nuts up there we want to loosen up. We'll pull that down and set it aside for now.The next step we need to do is get our exhaust lowered down. Now there's going to be three hangers. We've one located right here at the back. There's going to be one caddy corner from that tucked up in here just beside your rear passenger side wheel. Then if we come back towards the center of the vehicle, follow our exhaust pipe forward, we'll find another one right here. Now I like to use a little bit of spray lubricant on these just to make everything come apart a little bit easier. Then you can use a big screwdriver or a pry bar, just come in from the back, apply pressure, and you can get them to pop off there.Now on each side you're going to have a rubber plug in the frame rail. We want to pull that out. We're not going to reuse them, so we can return them to our customer or just hang on to them. Now with the help of an extra set of hands, we're going to get our hitch lifted up and into position. We're going to be using the M10 bolts. Got a conical tooth washer on those. You want those teeth to be facing up. We're going to align the holes in the bottom side of our hitch with those holes in the bottom of the frame rail. You can see our bolt's going to go through there. We want to get that threaded into that hole right above it. Once you get four or five good turns on it, you can let it rest there and it'll allow us to get our other one started.Now on the driver side we just have one to get put in place. That's going to go in this rearmost hole only. Now on the driver side we want to use our 1/2" carriage bolts. Those are going to go through the side plates of our hitch, and they come out on the inside of our frame rail there just like that. On the other side, we're going to go from the inside out with our 7/16" carriage bolts. Now on each one of those carriage bolts we want to place an appropriately sized flange nut, 7/16 on the passenger, 1/2" on the driver.Now we'll run through and snug everything down. For our 1/2" flange nuts we want to use a 19mm or a 3/4. For our smaller M10s here, we're going to use a 17. On those 7/16" carriage bolts you'll want an 11/16. Now we want to go through and torque down each of our fasteners to the specifications listed in the instructions.Now with everything torqued down, our hitch is installed, we're going to replace our panel here. For these nuts on top, we had to loosen them up with a socket, but when we go back in, we can just push them up into place. Then we can put our push pin fasteners back in. Now we'll get that exhaust put back up. Now doing this, we should be able to just do it by hand. You can always use a little bit more spray lubricant if you need to. But we took three off so we want to get three put back on. Now we'll put our spare tire back in, and our hitch is going to be ready for use. That'll complete our installation of the etrailer.com custom fit Class 3 trailer hitch receiver on our 2019 Kia Sorento.

Can I rate it a 4.5? Received in 2 days...Very impressive build...toward 100#. After install there is no doubt in my mind about pulling a trailer! Its a great addition to my 2019 Kia Sorrento. Installation video was awesome helpful. Only issue was putting the long bolts through the frame. tolerances were a little too tight. Had to hammer the bolts into place...they would not go any other way. Took some doing ...but the end product torqued in.... is quite impressively heavy duty. 579705

The product by itself would have ranked 5 stars - excellent quality and arrived super fast - but the instructional videos that ETrailer provides for these products are absolutely amazing. The videos saved me TONS of time and frustration and made this project come out perfectly. Plus I saved a bunch of money by doing the install myself. I couldn't be happier. Great job ETrailer! 587982

Priced all around my area to have receiver mounted on my vehicle. It was almost scary the prices I got. I finally decided to try and find a receiver and DIY. Purchased mount from etrailer.com and viewed a video on internet on how to mount to my particular vehicle. I think I paid less than $250. Not really sure but I do know i saved over $400 doing it myself. I'm 68 yrs. old and with the assistance of my 67 year old wife less than 2 hrs. later part was installed. Ordered for my vehicle and it fit perfect. Thanks etrailer.com 535620

Order came quickly but was missing some parts and the hitch had scuff marks and scraped paint which will rust prematurely if I don't repaint those areas. Also noticed that when I finally ordered it the price had jumped from when I had originally looked at the website about a month ago. I'm in contact with etrailer about the missing parts. 535602

The hitch I purchased went on as easy as the instructions show that it would. It took me 1 1/2 ours including the wiring and mounting the plug on the hitch. It is a very clean installation and saved me a lot of money doing it myself. 535698

We had this hitch professionally installed on our 2016 Kia Sorento as we weren't comfortable doing the work ourselves. We've certainly enjoyed being able to tow our little travel trailer! 535585

Everything was very good with the exception of when we were fitting up the hitch on the passenger side and trying to line up the holes for item 3 & 4 we ran into an interference with a weld on the frame of the car. It did not allow us to be able to freely line up those bolt holes. We had to lower the hitch and grind away a portion of the leading edge of the hitch. After doing this, everything went according to installation instructions. Also if the photos could have been a little lighter it would help. Overall Good. 535713

The hitch was delivered earlier than expected and was packaged very nicely. The instructions were very thorough and made installation relatively easy, even for a novice (I only say "relatively easy" because it is very heavy!) 547674

The hitch for my 2018 Kia Sorrento arrived on time and it was better than expected. I plan on installing it as soon as possible. It was bought so that I would have more room in the Kia for my two Golden Retrievers and tow a suitcase rack. 535595

Great product, high quality and finishing. It was easy to install especially with their installation videos. 544690

The first hitch I order was really scraped up down to the bare metal in places. I was very unhappy as what is the point of having a good finish when its scratched off in places. I plan on keeping my Sorrento for a long time and want the hitch to last. I was told they come this way sometimes and that it was scratched up during shipment and preparing a package from the pallet it shipped on. This did not seem logical to me because I cannot imagine customers would tolerate product in this kind of condition. after providing customer service with some pictures of the damaged product ustomer service apologize assured me they would send me out a new 1 right away which I quickly received. The new one with nearly flawless however the box still had two spots that failed slightly scratching the hitch just like my first one. A little more care in preparing the hitches for shipment would easily solve this problem. The box just needs to be reinforced in two locations. The hitch itself looks to be of excellent quality and I believe I will be very happy with it. Etrailer should have never shipped the first hitch in such poor condition but they did make it right and sent me a new one. All of this could have been avoided if they would have paid closer attention prior to shipping me a hitch and they would have miney not having to ship a second hitch out and ship the old one back. 535717

This product is exactly as advertised. I am not a mechanic, nor am I really that handy with tools. I was able to do this install in about an hour and a half by myself. If I had a set of hands to hold this in place while I worked on the other side of the car it would have taken me about half as long. As it was I as under the car(in my driveway with no lift) holding one side up with my hip and trying to align the carriage bolts on the other side.I only mention all of this to make the point that, this is a relatively easy install process that can be accomplished with relative ease.This is the second receiver I order from etrailer.com, and the second one that I am very satisfied with. I had the other hitch for 3 years with zero complaints, this one I have only had for about a week, but we had its maiden voyage this weekend and it worked great!etrailer.com is easy to deal with, easy to navigate the website, and the instructions were spot on. I would recommend this site 10/10 times! 535688

Product was just the right fit installation was done in 42 minutes from start to finish muffler hangers where the hardest. All the holes lined up instructions where easy to follow and the video was a help also watched that first then did the install. I used my son to help hold it up for the first bolt after that it was easy for him to the finish the rest. Will be using this with my Hollywood 4 place bike carrier it looks sturdy enough to tow a small trailer, but anything else you would need a brake controller and electric brakes on the trailer the KIA in my opinion is not made for towing large trailers. Great product shipped fast and good costumer support and follow up from George at etrailer thanks again.. 535709

My husband and I both ordered hitches from your site. My husband inadvertently ordered the wrong one for his vehicle and the customer service was amazing, they sent him the return label immediately and he purchased the right one and got it in the mail 2 days later with free shipping. Both kits were easily installed using your videos and instructions. 535600

The Hitch works great but trying to install it in your driveway without the benefit of a jack is a challenge and an extra set of hands will go a long way. No fault of the trailer hitch its simply the steps you have to take in getting it in place are time-consuming and hard work. But the finished product works great. Thank you 595358

It was pretty simple and straightforward. Follow the directions and easy peasy. Was a little tough installing on my own but was able to get it in. At first I thought it needed to be sent back since the passenger side holes didn’t match up. BUT once I loosened the driver side bolts it matches up. So keep that in mind. Thanks etrailer.com. I m sure I will order other accessories as well. 588128

Have yet to install this hitch so I may revise my rating. However, this is the second different hitch I have purchased from etrailer that has arrived with damage. The quality and durability of the finish is touted in their video but what they don't tell you is that it will most likely arrive with dings, dents and scrapes down to raw metal. These need to be fixed if you don't want it to rust. I have brought this concern up before and they gave me $10 off to buy spray paint to fix it and said that it would be part of routine maintenance in the future. That may be, however, if you are going to sell damaged products then advertise them as such, or charge more to deliver undamaged products. I did not choose to buy a damaged product! Be honest in your advertisements as I will be in my reviews. Regardless, I must say that etrailers install and technical information is incredibly good! 585690

I was very pleased with this transaction. My box was very beat up but the item was not damaged. The item is very heavy and very well built. Myself and a 10 year old boy installed this item. I did use and electric impact driver which helped a lot. I took my full exhaust off from the cat back. I used a 19mm socket on my impact driver for this. You also have to drop the spare tire. The hardest part was removing the plastic piece on the drive side. The two plastic nuts are very hard to get off b/c they don't want to bite. The price on this item here was $50 cheaper than I could find it anyplace else. I almost bought one from that trailer rental place and am glad that I did not. 535586

Right now I really wish they'd used ANOTHER COMPANY for shipping, I've tried to steered clear of UPS after my girlfriend watched them throw a package across their truck. So I really wasn't too surprised when I saw this package had been thrown as well, the hitch punched through the side of the box. Thankfully etrailer taped everything to the hitch itself so nothing fell out of the compromised box. I'd give it a higher rating but I have to do a bit of touch up on the paint now. 535598

The other trailer hitches, like the etrailer.com # E98843, have more of a width issue but since the EcoHitch has a higher crossmember I believe that the larger diameter of your spare will be an issue. If you like the hidden look of the EcoHitch and you still have your...

  • Recommended 2-Inch Hitch and Hitch Cargo Carrier for 2019 Kia Sorento
  • The hitch I recommend for your 2019 Kia Sorento is the 2-inch model # E98843 which I prefer over the Draw-Tite # 75908 because of its higher weight capacity and because it is USA-made. This model also has a nicer matte black powder coat finish that is more discrete in appearance than the glossy finish on the Draw-Tite. All required mounting hardware comes with the hitch and you can see it installed on a Sorento in the photo I linked for you. I also linked the written instructions, a...

  • How to Correct Rear Squat in 2019 Kia Sorento from Trailer Tongue Weight
  • What you are experiencing with your vehicle's stance changing when you hitch your trailer is a normal effect often called squat. Rear-end squat will occur with just about any vehicle that has a trailer's tongue weight (TW) applied to the hitch ball.

  • Recommended Adapter or Shank for Carrier to Increase Ground Clearance with 325 lb Scooter & Carrier
  • The MaxxTow Dual Hitch Extender for 2" Trailer Hitches - 12" Long # MT70070 because it is an adapter will allow up to 400 lbs tongue weight total which could allow the scooter carrier and scooter of 325 lbs combined. The issue is that your hitch would need to be rated for 650 lbs tongue weight for that to work with this adapter because it reduces your hitch tongue weight by 50%. According to your owner's manual you would need the Lambda II 3.3 for that application. This can work with...

  • Trailer Wiring Harness for 2019 Kia Sorento
  • The correct wiring harness for your 2019 Kia Sorento will depend on if it has the factory tow package or not. If your '19 Sorento DOES have the factory tow package the best option is the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness for Factory Tow Package - 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118269 because it is simple to install; you will only need to plug it into connection points along the frame rail under your vehicle. The other reason to go with this harness is that its manufacturer, Tekonsha, has...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wheelchair Carrier for 2019 Kia Sorento
  • For your 2019 Kia Sorento I recommend the etrailer.com Class III Trailer Hitch # e98843 because it features the highest tongue weight capacity available at 750 pounds and has a unique matte black finish to provide a rugged appearance. The hitch itself is more than up to the task of supporting your loaded wheelchair carrier. It will install using existing holes in the Sorento's frame for a no-drill installation. I have attached an install video that you can also use for reference. In...

  • Can the Rear Hatch of a 2016 Kia Sorento Be Used with the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top
  • A trunk mounted bike rack such as the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top part # HRF2-3 for your 2016 Kia Sorento cannot be left installed while the rear hatch/trunk is opened. This is the case for all trunk mounted bike racks due to both weight and clearance restrictions. In order to open the rear hatch on your Sorento with a bike rack installed you will need to install a trailer hitch like the Trailer Hitch Receiver part # E98843 and hitch mounted bike rack with a tilt/swing feature like the...
