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.

A little challenging to install by yourself on the concrete floor, but I was able to do it. It had taken me 2hrs for installation. Product fit perfect!

2020 GMC Acadia

Purchased for installation on a 2021 Acadia - VERY simple minimal disassembly with the vehicle sitting on the ground. No lift required, simple hand tools with exception of a real torque wrench (rent one or buy a nice one - this is a key step for assembly safety!) Nothing seldomly goes smoothly - however based on the application, I am very satisfied with the process, the piece is solid, clean welds, snug fit, large platform and perfect for the application I am using it for. Installed alone - took my time but if I was hustling I’m sure 40 min installation would be max time.

Built like a tank! Install was straight forward for 2017 Acadia. Didn’t have any issues bolting to the frame. If you watch the video this is exactly how it goes. You can’t go wrong with this hitch.



by:

I would recommend it to anyone needing more space for vacation travel or when you need more space. We've used ours 3 times now and it's so easy to install and remove.

Perfect transition. Arrived in 1 day and the communication is excellent!

Install was easy. Getting the nuts started as the most difficult part, buy once one is started it's easy from there. Instructions and video made it a very simple install



by:

Fit was very difficult to install shield needed to be cut out much more than 4 " to get flat fit against rail - front bolts did not line up on one side visible difference between weld on right side required reaming of holes and bracket to get bolt through hitch contacted mounting nuts of exhaust hanger.

I know that this hitch is a more challenging install. It sounds like that it was possible that the side bracket were flexed out of alignment. We do have a FAQ that can help when that happens.

  • Recommended Hitch for a 2023 GMC Acadia
    The best hitch for your 2023 GMC Acadia is going to be the etrailer Hitch item # e36AR. This hitch is custom fit and bolts to your GMC with included hardware. I really like the etrailer hitch because it installs behind your rear bumper cover and can be completely hidden when you are not towing. This is a class III hitch with a 2" receiver. It has a 5,000 lbs towing capacity, and a 750 lbs maximum tongue weight. I have linked a couple of pictures below along with an installation video...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch For A 2023 GMC Acadia
    When installing a trailer hitch on your 2023 GMC Acadia for either towing a trailer or hauling a bike rack we have the perfect hitch for you. We have two options on trailer hitches that are confirmed for your vehicle. We have The etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e36AR and we have The Curt Hitch # C13293. Out of the two hitches I recommend choosing the etrailer hitch # e36AR over the Curt hitch because the etrailer hitch has a matte black powder coated finish and has an extra coating...

  • What Is The Best Hitch To Get For A 2019 GMC Acadia
    Hello Gina. For your 2019 GMC Acadia I recommend the etrailer Class 3 Hitch # e36AR. This hitch has a 2" receiver and is rated for towing 5,000 lbs or 750 lbs of tongue weight. It will also be a fairly easy bolt-on installation. For a wiring harness I recommend the Curt T-Connector # C56326 which will also be quite easy to install. I also suggest that you get the Curt Towing Starter Kit # C45554 which will contain everything you need to hitch up and tow a trailer. I have included links...

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver Compatible With AT4 Trim on 2022 GMC Acadia
    For your 2022 GMC Acadia AT4 you will need the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76023. Both the Curt # C13293 and our etrailer # e36AR will not fit the AT4 trim. The Draw-Tite is designed to fit as the factory receiver would and hides behind the removable fascia panel. For the wiring I recommend using the wiring from the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118276 to connect to the factory wiring. Instead of using the included 7-way you can connect the 7- and 4-Pole Trailer Connector...

  • Which Heat Shield Studs Are Removed For etrailer e36AR Installation on 2017 GMC Acadia
    When installing the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e36AR you will remove one heat shield stud on each side after reinstalling the heat shields. The stud you will be removing is the one near the exhaust hanger where you removed the two bolts to lower the exhaust. See the attached picture. The installation process is the same as the # C13293. I have attached the instructions for the Curt hitch along with an installation video you can check out. If you jump to the 4 minute mark you will...

  • Comparing The Curt # C13293 And etrailer # e36AR Trailer Hitches For A 2017 GMC Acadia SLT-2
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13293 and etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e36AR are actually the exact same hitch, just with different paint finishes. Both hitches are compatible with your SLT-2 sub model so it's just going to come down to which finish you prefer. The Curt # C13293 has a shiny gloss black finish and the etrailer # e36AR has a matte black finish. I personally prefer the matte black since it does a better job hiding scratches and tends to blend in better with the fascia....
