Rugged, Matte Black Finish

The sturdy steel construction is protected with a matte black finish for added durability. This unique powder coating gives etrailer hitches a carbide-like appearance and a rugged look that sets them apart from traditional glossy hitches. In addition to being rust and corrosion resistant, the tough matte coating hides dirt, scuffs, and dings better than a glossy finish.

Hitch has worked with out any issues. Purchased a new travel trailer using a WDS. Also purchased Redarc Tow-Pro Elite Trailer Brake Controller - 1 to 3 Axles - Proportional. Installed it and works great. If your tired of looking on line for towing accessories just go to etrailer. They haven’t let me down.

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

This is a great hitch, however I encountered some problems when installing it. The driver side bolts easily, but the passenger side did not line up initially. Only after I tightened the bolts on the driver side did it force the hitch over enough to secure the passenger side bolts. I would have saved a lot of time had I known this in advance. The rest of the installation went smoothly. My vehicle is a 2019 Kia Sorento LX V6. 737954

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

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

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

I installed a curt hitch and wiring harness on my 2016 kia sorento, it took about an hour for me and my son to install them. The curt hitch is very well built, i was actually surprised at the good quality. The instructional videos were very helpful. The etrailer customer service is second to none. The whole experience from shopping to purchase, to installation was really easy. The kia dealership wanted $600.00 to install a hitch, with etrailer i did it for less than $200.00. I would definitely recommended etrailer to a friend. 668903

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

I bought a etrailer hitch receiver, Reese cargo basket, etrailer rainproof bag, and lastly a Silent Hitch Pin (anti rattle). It all showed up in a few days. Unpacked everything that night w/no parts missing which is a plus. Took about 10 mins to put the carrier together. Installed the receiver yesterday (after reading through the installation instructions a couple times to be familiar w/the steps taken). Just backed the vehicle up on car ramps and used a crawler. The receiver install took about an hour and was pretty easy to do. Had to use Kroil in the factory threads (due to rust) in My Kia. Instructions reminded me to do this and it is definitely a good thing to do. Put the carrier on for a test fit (the pin will be appreciated later I'm sure) and looks like the whole package is gonna work perfect for a trip out of state later this month. I'll update my review then. 668477

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

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

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 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

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

Heavy duty hitch. Overbuilt considering my Sante Fe can only tow two thousand pounds. This hitch looks like it can tow ten times that. Very impressed with the quality of hitch. I have installed a few class 3 hitches in other vehicles but none compared to this one. Definitely a 2 person job to install due to weight of hitch. Great job etrailer!!! 828262

Worked as advertised! Fast shipping of a quality product. Was very tough to install alone and would make sure to have a second pair of hands next time......But otherwise, seamless install. Save yourself the install fee from a dealer, and do it yourself. The included directions were sufficient, but watching a video online helps too. Would buy this again for sure. 827813

  • Recommended Class III Trailer Hitch for a 2019 Kia Sorento V6
    The engine itself doesn't quite make the difference, but the model does. If you have the SX model of the 2019 Kia Sorento I recommend the Class III etrailer.com Trailer Hitch # e98843 because it has a matte black finish that does a great job of complimenting your vehicle plus it helps to hide scratches and dings from road debris. The etrailer.com trailer hitch will also fit non-SX models, but I do have a different recommendation with the Class III EcoHitch # 306-X7320 for non-SX models....
