Go to www.gmpartsnow.com enter your info and get a part number then enter a newer vehicles info and see if part numbers are the same

Had to go with the 18 XT5

Re: trailer hitches

I have the Curt 2" 13591 on mine. What is real interesting is this hitch was previously on my 2005 Saturn Vue. When I looked at the Curt website and both vehicles had the same number I called Curt and said explain. They yeap GM used/still uses the same space frame for those vehicles. It was a no cost to move over to the 2013 NOX. If you have Amazon Prime the cost is $112 for the hitch alone and $126 for hitch and wiring harness. I just ordered the wiring harness. BTW with Amazon Prime was free shipping (2 day) and that hitch weights 35 lbs. Very clean and easy install for the hitch and wiring harness (plug n play)

Re: trailer hitches

yeah just take one of the aftermarket hitches...
and look around- and youll see what vehicles it fits..

When I was looking for my aftermarket-
Terrain, Nox, VUE, and I believe Captiva- use the same hitch-- previous generations too like mentioned above,

2013 Equinox LT1 3.6L V6 FWD 88,000
2010 Traverse LT1 3.6L V6 FWD 153,000
2003 Trailblazer LS 4.2L I6 RWD 181,000

Re: trailer hitches

I pull a 20' pontoon boat. I have my hitch "inverted" so that the ball is 2.5"
above the receiver and it works just fine. The Terrain pulls it pretty but on
the highway, the 3.0L has a hard time keeping it in 6th.

Re: trailer hitches

I went to etrailer.com, got the part numbers, then went to Amazon.com and got free shipping and a better price.
A Curt hitch is on mine. Super easy to install.

Re: trailer hitches

Found a pretty good buy for a 2" receiver with 4flat wiring:

Pictures are nolt reflective but once you see it's a Curt 13591 & 56094 that does the trick.

Re: trailer hitches

All that holds that hitch on are those four flimsy-looking bolts? And the nuts are welded to the frame already?

Are those 8.8 or 10.9 bolts?

Re: trailer hitches

6 bolts, Four M12 x 1.75's and Two 1/2"ers

Nuts are supposed to be welded for the side bolts (m12's) and you get to fish a square hole spacer into the subframe for the center 1/2" bolts. Sounds not so fun but its not too bad.

This video isnt exactly for the 13591 but it gives a good idea how to get around and do the install:
