Ssangyong Rexton Towing Specifics
The Ssangyong Rexton was first introduced in 2001 by the South Korean manufacturer as a mid size SUV, designed with incredible towing capabilities. We will cover the towing specifics of this model below.
Ssangyong Rexton Towbar Electrics Kits
It is recommended that all tow bars fitted to a Ssangyong Rexton vehicle are done so with a dedicated electrics kit, rather than a universal electrics kit. A dedicated electrics kit not only ensures all modern features such as; trailer stability and parking sensors are functional, but also helps to keep your vehicle's warranty unaffected.
We offer both universal and dedicated electrics kits for the Ssangyong Rexton vehicle towbars, but be aware that universal electrics kits can invalidate any manufacturer warranty your vehicle has and may also require a bypass relay.
Check your Ssangyong warranty for more information.
All tow bars for the Ssangyong Rexton 2002-2006 models will not require a bypass relay, if universal electrics are fitted.
All tow bars for the Ssangyong Rexton 2006-2017 and 2017 onwards models will require a bypass relay, if universal electrics are fitted.
A bypass relay works by powering what it is you are towing through transferring power straight from the battery instead of taking too much current away from your vehicle.
Whereas a dedicated system works in harmony with your vehicle's ECU and all of its functions.
This is the coding of the ECU to accept the dedicated system, this updates your vehicles software to run smoothly with the new towbar.
All Ssangyong Rexton models will not require coding.
Coding is used to update your vehicles software in order for it to run coherently with the new towbar through the dedicated electrics.
Depending on the towbar, Ssangyong Rexton models will not require a bumper cut. A bumper cut is when a fraction of the vehicle's rear bumper is cut in order to fit the towbar.
All Ssangyong Rexton 2002-2006 and 2017 onwards models have towbars that require no bumper cuts.
All Ssangyong Rexton 2006-2017 models have towbars that require non visible and no bumper cuts.
Nose weight is the amount of weight pushing down on the tow ball, it is important not to exceed the nose weight set on the tow bar, failure to do so could damage the car chassis and/or tow bar mounting points. Nose weight varies depending on the towbar you choose and are displayed under each tow bar below.
All Ssangyong Rexton 2002-2006 models have a nose weight of up to 140kg.

For all Ssangyong Rexton vehicles, the towbars have a towing weight capacity of up to 3500kg.
You will need to check the towing limit for your Ssangyong Rexton vehicle model as it may not be able to tow up to the weight limit that the tow bar can tow.
