HotShot308's Subaru Forester with EcoHitch

If you’ve been paying attention to our blog as of late, you probably know that Torklift Central is the leading manufacturer of aftermarket trailer hitches for a whole host of compact and hybrid cars. But, if you happen to own something a little bigger—like a compact crossover SUV—you may be feeling left out and frantically searching the Internet for the means to increase your vehicle’s utility with a super sweet hidden hitch. No need to fret, though. Torklift Central now offers their signature EcoHitch for the ultimate compact crossover SUV: the 2016 Subaru Forester. So whether you are interested in mounting a bike rack or installing a trailer hitch that provides plenty of ground clearance, the EcoHitch is for you.

Not only does the EcoHitch boast a completely concealed design where only the receiver is visible, it’s also 100% bolt-on installation so no drilling is required. Moreover, the EcoHitch is engineered to meet stringent national SAE J684 towing safety standards and rated for 350 pounds of tongue weight and 3,500 pounds of towing weight. It’s also available as a 1 ¼ or 2-inch receiver to meet your sizing needs and perfectly designed to complement the aerodynamic contours and underbody airflow of your 2016 Subaru Forester.

For those of you that happen to be more environmentally conscious, perhaps the kicker is that the EcoHitch is as eco-friendly as its name implies: manufactured with recycled materials that can include a qualified combination of aerospace grade aluminum, stainless steel or steel,* making it incredibly durable and lightweight to boot. To top it off, the EcoHitch is also manufactured with a high-impact powder coat that is equally rugged as it is stylish.

EcoHitch ships to the lower 48 states for free, is made in the U.S.A. and comes with a Lifetime Warranty. Yes, you read that correctly.

But don’t just take our word for how awesome the EcoHitch is for the 2016 Subaru Forester. Check out what forum user HotShot308 (a.k.a Alan) had to say about the EcoHitch and his Quartz Blue Pearl 2016 Subaru Forester XT Touring:

“I have towed my 5'x20' trailer with it a few times now. I like how it extends back a little further than the last hitch I had, so it's easier to hook up with the back-up camera. I can see the hitch ball with the EcoHitch, so it's a one-shot back-up and lower the trailer [onto the hitch].”

“I also like how it mounts to the frame…[EcoHitch] uses the very front hole and the back hole. I think this spreads the load better and should help to better reinforce the chassis from load flexing. Additionally, I like the design that puts the bar up behind the bumper cover and the receiver tube is the only thing sticking down, which will help with departure angles when off-roading.”

“I have better peace of mind with the EcoHitch. I have done a lot of towing in the past, and it really does make me feel more confident with this hitch.”
