Hello, I purchased a 2021 Trailblazer AWD LT yesterday and the build specifies that it should have the V92 trailering equipment included. It does not have a hitch or wire harness connector and I was wondering if this was missed at the assembly plant and if so, how should I proceed to get this installed to specs of the build.

Hi Smosher,
Welcome to the site.
I am not familiar with that equipment package for the TB.
I would check with the dealer to verify what is included with the V92. It is possible that the vehicle is equipped with heavier duty equpment( trans cooler, drive axle ratio,etc) but may not actually include the trailer hitch and wiring.
You can also go to the Chevrolet website and somewhere under customer care/support and chat with a representative and see if they can verify. Sometimes dealers don’t always prep the vehicle properly. It may have been missed. I noticed on mine after getting the license plates I have the incorrect front license plate that was in the car(not installed). My dealer is aware and they told me when my floor mats arrive they will have one if I don’t stop in before that. As much as we hope they would check everything, they don’t.
What color did you opt for.

Nice choice. Looks like mine. Just for curiosity I got on a chat with Chevy and they told me to contact the dealer. I let them know that I see no way to configure one into the build online, but that you can configure the build with a bike carrier for the hitch.

I contacted the Zchevy customer support and they didn’t know what the Trailering Equipment consisted of. The then gave me a number for the GM expert customer service, but they didn’t know either, they told me to contact the dealer but they don’t know. I work at GM and I’m trying to contact someone in Korea where these are built to find out. Someone has to know.

Mine has this also. No hitch or the like on the back. I thought maybe it meant the vehicle could be TOWED safely behind say a camper???

There is nothing in the owners manual about a V92 towing package.

Interestingly, our dealership experience was that we were told there was a hitch and a wiring harness included. Upon inspection of the vehicle, there was obviously no hitch and we have yet to find a wiring harness. The dealer is adding a hitch for us, and I'm honestly not too worried about the wiring harness given the anemic towing capacity rating..
But it's still disappointing.

It seems like the dealerships are obviously confused on this topic.

Update: just wanted to add that the "GM Vehicle Locator" report for our Trailblazer does indeed list 'V92 trailer provisions', and this is the document that our salesperson pointed to when indicating that the vehicle came with a hitch and wiring harness.

There's also a special sticker on the inside of the glove box, on the left. It lists all of the original equipment for the vehicle, and "V92" is listed on our Trailblazer.

My vin code list of my truck is not in the glove box but under the board over the spare tire. Pull it up, it is on the left side. I have V92 so this means I should have a hitch set up?????

Based on the article you posted earlier, I think V92 means that you should be "hitch ready" and have a wiring harness for trailer lights.

Conversely, I believe that my dealership was incorrect in stating that V92 included a hitch, ie they made a mistake.

I work for GM and have an email in process with the Design Engineer for our Korean sister company that builds these. They are 12 hrs behind us so hopefully I get a full verified response tomorrow.

Smoser, Will you also ask them about availability of cross rails for the roof rack? or if that is not something Gm will have available. I know when I had a MIni Van it had them. It was nice, as it made it easy to use. A fully integrated system should be items that GM designs knowing people may use this vehicle for lighter recreational use/travel.

I found the roof rails are available on the Chevrolet website.

Found my sticker. V92 is on the list. No hitch, have not looked for wiring. I assumed that the hitch is a dealer add-on. Many times these type of accessories are just that...dealer installs at delivery.

If it is listed on that RPO sticker then it should come on the car? Dealer installed or from the factory?

I haven't removed the spare tire, but I have seen through the holes in the rim and there is some sort of wiring stored in there. Could that be the wiring harness?

That is the rubber padded watersport carrier by Thule for kayaks, surfboards, etc. Those have been on the GM accessory site since the Trailblazer was available to order in January. GM should still be offering their own cross rails that are universal for attaching multiple products. I guess you could make them work for a few different set ups.
