My 2023 EX has been waiting for its tow package since last fall. My dealer told me to call every month for an update. Last month the update was “no tow package for 2023. KIA is trying to have one ready for 2024 model year.”I bought a 2023 Telluride SX X-line last week that came with the Tow option. However, it had no hitch receiver installed. The dealer assured me they would get the parts and install the tow package this week. They called today to tell me Kia has not released the parts for the hitch receiver yet and Kia has no forecast date of availability for the kit.
Do any of you have better availability information than my dealer is providing?
He had no idea whether ia 2024 design would fit the 2023s. He said “unofficially” he would buy an aftermarket 4-pin unit and splice correct connectors.
I cannot vouch for the reliability of anything my dealer or any KIA dealer says. I have heard a good deal of BS from them about a lot of things.
