I've been told that there is no 2" receiver / hitch available anywhere for the Taos as of yet. It does appear that it has mounting points underneath. Want to use it for a bike or a luggage rack (no towing). Anybody heard anything?

Good news for anyone driving a FWD 2022 Taos. Draw-Tite #76517 works perfectly with the new Taos. Takes about 45 minutes to install and requires no cutting. There is a plastic shield underneath the car that can't be reinstalled after fitting the 2" hitch bracket. Just save it if you are leasing. I can report that they are in stock in a warehouse in Southern Indiana. Call Draw-Tite directly to find a local dealer if you don't live in the Midwest, they are very helpful. Mine took 4 days to arrive at the dealer. E-Trailer is cheaper by about $30.00, but they don't have them in stock. Good luck.

Heres the thing if the golf can tow the Taos can to i saw a video of a golf towing a boat and that was a tsi 1.5 so i think the Taos can tow maybe even 2000lbs and have a bike rack in the back because I want to tow a 500lbs trailer that’s it so I can go to Home Depot and get wood or steel but most of the time have a bike rack in the back

Keep us in the loop. Thanks for finding this.
This one's not looking good so far. Trying to get confirmation from manufacturer that this will work on the AWD. Also, etrailer.com shipping date is now pushed all the way out to 10/25

Had to cali Draw-Tite directly to find out where stock was being warehoused. Just placed an order today using the Draw-Tite product # (76517). Dealer ordered it out of a warehouse in Southern Indiana. Hopefully it will arrive before vacation starts. Works for me since I have the FWD, it is my wife that has the AWD. Some petty issues with radio and Carplay that were solved with a certified Apple cable. Otherwise I like both vehicles pretty well. Thanks for all your work finding a hitch that fits properly.
