Correct, no receiver hitch. There is a trim panel that is removable on the non-hitch equipped models and if you decide to add a hitch later, a new trim (facia) panel is available (has a slight bulge in it) to accomodate the receiver.stiffi said:Is there a trailer hitch receiver also? Or is this just omitted completely without the towing package?
Mine didn't come with a tow package, and I have lines running from the trans to the radiator - so would assume this for trans cooling. It's the same set up we have on our Yukon and it's cooled everything just fine. Was thinking I needed to install an after market cooler when I eventually add a hitch, but don't think I will need to now.cybergroove said:A dealer told me last weeked the Acadia's without the towing package still comes with the cooling unit for the transmission. Does anyone know if that is true? Thanks
Do you have a 2007 or a 2008. I have a 2008 that was built in July and I am trying to figure out if I will need to get this fuse panel thing done. I don't plan on installing the hitch for awhile, but don't want to wait too long if it needs fixed. Does anyone else know if this is a problem with both years?Gary said:My dealer installed the new fuse panel to make the harness operable at no charge as this is covered by GM under warranty.
I eventually will do something like this as well. I just want to verify. This is still considered an aftermarket trailering package and per the manual, the towing capacity will be 2000 lb, not the 4500 lb. Correct?CableDude said:I have a 2008 Acadia with a biuld date of Sept 2007. It did not have the tow package option. I was able to order the factory, hitch, 7 pin recepticle, 8 bolts, harness, and curved bumper peice all from GMcpartsdirect.com. The fuse pannel had to be updated to a V92 version and my dealer did that under warrenty. Just refer them to the TSB below if they have any questions.
Also picked a very nice 7 wire to 4 wire connector at Tractor Supply. It is a yellow coiled 3 foot long with round plug one end and 7 plug the other. This will keep your wires from touching ground as it will move with your turns. Each end will light up at night. Cost is 29.95. You can see it here - http://www.trailerwiring.com/ - and put in part number 47015

Does anyone have a copy of this notice that could be posted here? I'm curious if this is for only some serial numbers, or for all vehicles that did not have V92.CableDude said:Subject: Supplemental Information on Recreational Vehicle and Trailer Towing and Trailer Wiring Accommodation for Non-V92 Equipped Vehicles #07-00-89-021A - (06/27/2007)
