Hello Group

New member from Chicago looking to purchase a new 2.0T AWD Ultimate in the Spring, and looking for the availability of a Towing Kit for that model. Specs say 3500 lbs, but no towing kit option I can find on the Hyundai web site or towing information in the owners manual online.

Thanks to all

Call your local dealer and see if they will recommend who they use for this. They may give you a price to let them handle it and may guide you to a reputable local shop. I know U-Haul installs a lot of hitches.

I plan to put the hitch and wiring harness on my 19 AWD Limited this Spring for about $200. I only have the 2.4L, rated for 2000 lbs and doubt I'd ever tow anything close to that weight but at times pull wood chippers and splitters way less than 1000 lbs or put in a bike rack on the hitch. Other forum threads online have recommended this on etrailer.com and the video doesn't look too bad for the 3500 lb rated hitch install:

Curt Class 3 Trailer Hitch SKU#13195 get $155 from etrailer, no holes to drill.

WIRING confirmed to work: T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness for Factory Tow Package - 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector Item # 118784 Tekonsha logo Price: $50.32

I just picked up a 2019 Ultimate 2.0T and have on order the towing package. The hitch is in but the wiring has been on back-order since December. Hopefully arrives soon as I need to tow my sled.

I just installed a tow package on my 2019 - purchased the hitch form uhaul and had them install it.

I took care of the wiring myself - purchased the harness from Carid (Just make sure you get the one for the 2019) older year models will not fit. Also when you are installing it (instructions say connector is behind rear bumper) wrong - it is on the rear drivers side, hidden in what I will call a large plastic cover/box located at the very rear drivers side -

Other wise no problem good luck

Has anyone installed an electric brake controller in their Santa Fe? Is it just plug and play or is there a lot more to it?

I am about to order a Curt receiver for my 2019 Santa Fe Ultimate. Does anyone have pictures of the installed hitch? Just curious how it looks from the back. Thanks, Dave.
