      What's included in each Volvo hitch package?

      Stealth Hitches offers a rack only package and a combo package with tow and rack options. The same cross beam and vertical latch block are used on all packages so if you need to upgrade to tow later you can with the Audi Conversion Package.

      The Volvo hitch Rack Package comes with standard 2" detachable rack receiver that accepts current versions of bike racks, ski racks, cargo platforms, and other square tube accessories.  A wiring harness is not required if rack connections are the customers only application.

      The Volvo Combo Package uses a detachable ball mount that operates differently than a typical square tube receiver hitch.  When inserted into the stainless-steel receiver block, a tight connection is created to the vehicle frame, eliminating the jerking and banging associated with square tube receivers type hitches during starts and stops. This solid connection creates less wear and tear on the vehicle transmission and is a more pleasurable ride for the passengers. 

      Active Harness 

      We offer an active harness for added features such as:

      • Disabling the back-up sensor to eliminate beeping while backing up to your trailer.
      • Rear camera zoom at the trailer connection point for positioning the vehicle and preventing damage to the vehicle.
      • Stability control to limit trailer sway. 
      • This harness requires the same programming as the factory hitch harness.

      Worth Every Penny

      Installed a Volvo XC40 rack hitch using our friend’s “garage mahal” and using a lift which allowed us to do all the work at standing height - made things so much enjoyable The installation instructions were exceptionally detailed and definitely helped things move along smoothly. Post-installation, we’ve found the hands-free trunk release is actually more convenient and more responsive than the original location - an unanticipated extra. We shaved a 1/4” off the back of our XPort bike rack insert post, which allowed us to mount the bike rack deeper into the hitch to further improve rack stability. Bottom line - if you’re looking for a really nice, clean, concealed hitch - this hitch is worth every (five-digit) penny!

      Love it

      2 years ago I purchased a Stealth Hitch for my Volvo XC40. It has been a great purchase, has worked extremely well as advertised, and has been the best hitch I have had on any vehicle to date. The customer service was also amazing getting my hitch install scheduled and completed up in Georgia after driving up from Florida to do so. My only regret is not giving them a positive review sooner, but 2 years later

      Volvo XC40 with Stealth

      With a professional installation finally done I’m quite pleased. It’s a little tricky feeling for the keyhole which can’t be seen. With a little practice I’ve gotten pretty good at it. I’m storing the 2inch hitch with the spare tire completely out of the way. I forgot to replace the plastic cap over the lock but that will be habit soon. Next step get a bike rack

      Volvo XC40 Stealth Hitch

      Very high quality. Installation took about 4 hours. The trickiest part is reinstalling the back fascia so be careful that you get the clips on correctly. Some of the T25 screws that need to be unscrewed/******* are a tight squeeze due to the tires but with a little patience it is not too hard for anyone with the right tools and little experience.
