Just finished deal! Got it for MSRP! Holler Hyundai Orlando Florida is the best!!
A 7-pin is available, apparently at this early stage it’s a Kia part.The brochure says only 4-pin. Hopefully it is both.
Is there a 4 pin to 7 pin adapter?I just cant wrap my head around how Hyundai, in every press release, official walk around and all literature touts prominently the 5000lb tow capacity yet has not equipped the vehicle to do so.
They are about to lose my reservation.
The Maverick will come with what is needed to tow 4000lb via the 4k tow package that explicitly states, 7 pin and brake controller. The Ridgeline also comes, standard, from the factory, with a hitch and 7 pin.
The Cruz tow package only comes with a 4 pin? I wouldnt tow more than like 2500lbswithout a brake controller via 7pin with a vehicle this size. Let alone the base model's 3500lb or turbo 5000lbs.
They have bungled this aspect of the Santa Cruz. They know the value of marketing tow capacity, but didnt follow through on how to get to the tow rating.
You can get the 7 pin when your order the tow hitch, however at this early stage its just not available.I just cant wrap my head around how Hyundai, in every press release, official walk around and all literature touts prominently the 5000lb tow capacity yet has not equipped the vehicle to do so.

Don't know if Ford is still old school, but it is 10 mins to install. Factory port is clearly shown in the install.. plug in, string the cable to the bumper, done. 🙂 Jeeze... Patience... Thing just came out... The towing issue will be resolved.Do you have a link to this? (Not the Kia part)
And do you know if a trailer brake connection is pre-wired in the dash?
Both are needed to tow more than 1600lbs.
And pretty sure it will be more than 10 mins to install. I beleive power needs to be supplied from the vehicle battery which will require splicing or properly running a fused connection from the battery to the hitch.
Point being, selling a vehicle that is designed and touted to tow 3500lb to 5000lbs but not equiping it to tow more than 1600lbs is...questionable.
I am aware of the maverick tow package. It clearly says 7 pin and brake controller.
The tow package I see for the Cruz on the accessory website says 4 pin, and no mention of brake controller or at least a brake control input.
Trust me when I say that this stuff needs to be factory/warranty/dealer items. A LOT can go wrong.
Sorry for the thread hijack.
