Trailer Wiring Harness Kit Options for 2011 Chevrolet Traverse


Do you have a compatible item of # C56245 for a 2011 Traverse Red Edition, I think is LS? I have the hitch and I want to use the Cars 7 pin connector to plug in this kind of connector. Thank you,

Curt 4-Pole trailer wiring harness kit # C56245 fits the Chevrolet Traverse for model years 2013 through 2017. For your 2011 Traverse we do offer similar plug-and-play wiring kits and the correct one will depend on how the car is equipped.

If you have the factory tow package the car will have a round U.S. Car connector under the rear bumper that will accept a 4-pole plug-in harness # 118384 or a combination 7-way/4-pole harness like # HM40975.

If the car does NOT have the factory tow package you can use 4-pole kit # 118450 or you can use a powered-converter-equipped harness # HM11141615 that will provide protection from shorts on the trailer for the car's internal wiring. This type of harness is more complex to install but it will deliver the most power to your trailer lights as well as isolate the car from potential wiring issues on the trailer. A helpful article is included to assist with this type of harness installation.
