The scary thing my salesman told me was that they can only request that my Palisade comes with the tow hitch, but can't guarantee it will!!
Yeah. My salesman said they were very low on stock and suggested we order ours without the hitch which can always be installed later. And, to be honest I may buy an after market hitch and install it myself. It's just a few bolts and a wire connector.The scary thing my salesman told me was that they can only request that my Palisade comes with the tow hitch, but can't guarantee it will!!
Yea if it was gonna stay the same as previous years, i am planning on getting the stealth hitch.
I think the 6,000 lbs if when you're pulling a trailer with brakes. That's what the 7-pin connector gets you. A 4-pin will only run the brake lights but not trailer brakes.Here a video review.
A different reviewer mentioned that MAYBE the towing capacity will be increased to 6000lb (to match one of the competitors). But he was the only reviewer to mention it, so take that with a grain of salt.
Source?Hyundai says the hitch IS different than previous model years. When I asked about timing, all they would say is 'stay tuned.'
Nice. I would love to hear back from you about that curt hitch fitting. I just dont know what the difference is for the bumper thickness from 2022 to 2023. I think that could be the only reason why third party hitch won't fit.Source: DM straight from Hyundai USA.
All they would tell me is it's different. I suppose the previous version might still be compatible but I didn't specifically ask that. Also, the hitch design might be different depending on the trim level right? If you have the hitch bumper cover, that might be a different hitch design now? My calligraphy should be here in the next few days and I have the curt hitch in the garage waiting to be installed day 1. I'll report back.
I went ahead and checked with Stealth Hitches and they did not have any information on the 2023 Hyundai Palisade. I did see the installation instructions you were talking about and the 2020-2022 OEM hitch being offered for the 2023 model. I talked to our fit guide rep here and he wasn't sure either. The Stealth Hitch item # 391HYUNPALIS19T is quite a bit more complicated than the OEM hitch so it may need different parts or updated instructions. I can not answer this question with any amount of certainty right now so my recommendation is to wait a couple months and check back.
