Comparing Available Trailer Hitch Styles for 2015 Jeep Cherokee Latitude


Will this hitch fit and work on a 2015 Jeep Cherokee Latitude? I really dont like the idea of having to cut any fascia on the new vehicle. Thank You!

The hitch you mentioned would work great for you.

There are two hitch types available for your 2015 Cherokee a hitch that would have a crossbar that's completely concealed behind the rear bumper like the Curt Class III trailer hitch, part # C13172 or the style of hitch where the crossbar would be entirely exposed, like the Curt Class III, part # C13171.

If having the majority of the hitch exposed isn't a concern for you, by all means go with the # C13171, it would work just great for you.

If you'd prefer to have all of the hitch other than the receiver tube concealed behind the rear bumper, you'd need to use the # C13172. You would indeed need to cut a hole in the rear fascia, but the cut made is in the underside of the fascia where it wouldn't be very noticeable.

I can certainly understand your reluctance to go hacking away at a brand new vehicle with tinsnips or a Dremel tool. I'd be the same way.

If you click the provided links, you can see an installation video for both hitches.
