I just checked out the website and it has been updated to no longer show that you can reserve the GV80 but now "experience" it. And when you go further you are given actual specs and everything like you can actually but it or something lol.

Sadly, under the accessories tab, they show the aftermarket bolt on trailer hitch. They made no provision to blend it into the rear valance like other manufacturers. Looks cheap and crappy.

The window sticker says the tow wiring is standard, but that really doesn't mean anything because you still have to buy the factory wiring harness for $150 and still have to buy the tow hitch. There is not much difference between the factory tow hitch for $405 and the aftermarket Curt tow hitch I bought on eBay for $150.

The one I looked up was $4500 over sticker. :confused:
That’s not bad, because you aren’t gonna get away from them markup for sure, until when the hype dies down.

How did you find a Curt tow hitch that would fit the GV80? The vehicles are barely on the dealers lots. Did they get early access? Also, do you know if the factory hitch (or Curt) is rated for 6,000 pounds?

I found the hitch just doing a search for Genesis GV80 on ebay because I wanted to see what results Ebay would have. Apparently not very many, mostly windshield wiper blades.
Yes, both the Curt and the factory hitches are class 3 which and rated for 6k pounds.
The GV80 has probably been around long enough in Korea for the brand Curt to copy the oem hitch.

The aftermarket Curt Hitch fits perfectly. The eBay price of $154.35 includes free shipping. The wiring harness is not available on eBay.
