You just got your car after a long wait and you’re looking to maximize efficiency with it. One of our goals was to make a BMW X5 hitch that would be strong enough to fit your recreational needs.

BMW X5 Hitch Capacity

            When it comes to your 2023 BMW X5 towing capacity you will need to consult your owner’s manual for your specific tow ratings. According to multiple online sources, the BMW X5 tow hitch capacity is over 6,600 lbs. With that in mind, we wanted to make sure our hitch was sturdy enough to endure all your adventures.

Our tow hitch for the BMW X5 is rated for 750 pounds tongue and 7,500 pounds pulling capacity.** With this, you will be able to carry bikes, pull lightweight trailers, or whatever you may need!

How to Install the BMW Trailer Hitch X5

Step 1: Unclip your rear fender as well as the plastic trim under the liftgate with 8mm and 10mm sockets.

Step 2: Unbolt the Factory exhaust from the Cross Member, then temporarily remove the rear sensor bracket. Then proceed to remove the cross member.

Step 3: Obtain and lift the hitch into place, centering and fastening the rear factory cross member nuts to secure the hitch onto the vehicle.

Step 4: Reinstall all factory components with the original hardware (except the rear cross member).

Step 5: Slide your hitch adapter into the receiver hitch, follow all the torque specifications and enjoy!

**Although your EcoHitch® tongue weight and tow weight rating might be exceedingly high – this is because we build our hitches to withstand all kinds of beatings – your vehicle’s towing capacity could be lower. Please consult your vehicle’s owners manual to determine your factory tow weight rating and never exceed it. No aftermarket products can increase your factory tow weight rating. If your vehicle's tow rating is less than the rated towing capacity on your EcoHitch® trailer hitch, your trailer hitch capacity is limited to your vehicle's factory rated towing capacity. Please check your owner’s manual to confirm your vehicle is rated to tow.
