Center of Hitch Pin Hole Location for Curt Class III Trailer Hitch on a 2016 Hyundai Tucson

Question:

Im not sure if Malone changed the design of the HM3, but my OEM hitch is 4 1/2 inches center of the pin hole to the back of the bumper, but the bump out at the top of the rack hits the back of the Hyundai tailgate emblem. Would the Curt Class III Receiver Hitch # C13240 be any different than the OEM hitch provided by Hyundai?

Helpful Expert Reply:

I saw that you input a 2016 Hyundai Tucson in for your vehicle information. When we installed the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13240 on a 2016 Tucson AWD we found from the center of the hitch pin hole to the end of the bumper measured 3-1/2".

If you have a 2016 then that means you will have an extra inch of clearance when compared to the 4-1/2" of clearance you currently have with your OEM trailer hitch meaning the Malone Hanger 3 Bike Rack # MPG2127 will clear that tailgate emblem.

Let me know if you have a different model year and I can help you determine where the hitch pin hole will sit.
