With a design that raises the bar for the biggest Subaru ever built, the Subaru Ascent is perfect for thrilling excitement and adventure. In order to bring additional items, you need a towing accessory that is as rugged as your Ascent for mounting a cargo tray, bicycle rack or towing a trailer behind your Subaru Ascent trailer hitch.
The EcoHitch is the top trailer hitch for Subaru Ascent owners. With the most towing capacity of any Subaru ever designed, you not only need a trailer hitch that is as strong as possible to back up your towing capabilities, but one that also doesn’t ruin the appearance of the Ascent. When you’re wanting to hit the road – the Subaru Ascent EcoHitch is here for all of your towing needs.
Invisible Crosstube – Doesn’t Affect Ground Clearance!
Stepping into innovation, your Subaru Ascent is going to be with you for a while – so you don’t want your hitch to hang below your vehicle ruining the look for years to come affecting your 8.7-inches of ground clearance. The trailer hitch you choose needs to keep up with your highly-engineered Subaru. The Subaru Ascent EcoHitch is specially designed to have zero effect on your ground clearance and can be hidden behind the removable panel when you’re not towing and hauling. The only part of the hitch that is ever visible is the receiver while in use.
How much can you tow with your Ascent trailer hitch? That’s a great question. The Ascent is able to tow up to 5,000 pounds. You can also find the specific tow rating in your owner’s manual. The EcoHitch is rated at 750 pounds tongue weight and 5,000 pounds towing. That means this tow hitch is plenty strong to handle anything you could want to haul with your Ascent.
This trailer hitch is engineered to meet stringent national SAE J684 towing safety standards using state of the art testing methods. Due to the high towing weight rating of the Subaru Ascent, a 2-inch receiver is the best option for the best stability and safety possible while towing and hauling. That also means that you’ll have plenty of options of accessories to use with your hitch.
100%, No-Drill Bolt-On Installation
Our Subaru trailer hitch is 100 percent no-drill bolt-on and doesn’t require a strap for additional support when you’re hauling extra cargo and bike racks. What does that mean for you? The EcoHitch installation is a non-obtrusive process that can be performed at home with some tools, at Torklift Central in Kent, Wash., or by a Certified EcoHitch Installer. Forum user Maliska installed the EcoHitch on their Ascent and “it could not have been easier.” Read their full installation review below:
Forum user Maliska's installation review for the EcoHitch on the Subaru Ascent forum
Other hitches require safety support straps for their installation in order to honor the warranty, and they’re concerned about the attachment points of their hitches once installed. Whereas for the EcoHitch, the installation requires absolutely no drilling into the car’s frame and doesn’t require a safety support strap in order for you to have the lifetime warranty. Torklift hitches are built solid so we have the upmost confidence in the design and attachment points of the hitch, thus our EcoHitches don’t need additional accessories to ensure that they work at optimum levels.
