Dealer told me a dealer installed hitch wasn't an option (from them at least, not sure if that's a universal thing)... they didn't have any suggestions on other suggested vendors.
It's actually able to be ordered on the Canadian model for $450 CDNit's been on the US option list since inception - and I believe still unavailable.
this is really stupid in the SUV market. people buy SUV's for their ability to move stuff, they know this which is why it's the first Alfa sold in the US with a tow rating (yes, same cars tow in Europe for many years), and then not to have the hitch.
talk about dropping the ball ...
From the UK dealer fit accessories catalogueI really look forward to seeing a pic of one installed.
Different countries allow for different factors when determining the tow capacity. The US is simply more restrictive. If you check most vehicles the tow ratings are greater for the same vehicles with the only difference being where they're sold.The US rating is still only max 3000 lbs compared to the EU version that allows max 5000 lbs or 2300 kgs. For exactly the the same car spec. I have asked numerous Alfa sources why the difference but no one has come up with an explanation for the difference.
