Yes you can buy a hitch and a ball to slide into that square in the back of your SUV!!! LOL too funny! The hitch needs to be rated for the load being pulled, and after a few calculations you can figure out your tow load capacity on your SUV. In fact you can go to the dealer or google it and find out on line. Also, hitches come in all shapes and sizes, so get some help choosing the correct size. Also think about how heavy the trailer will be, the tow capacity of the trailer etc etc.....you can also buy stabilizer bars that help reduce sway etc......
You may want to ask around and get someone to help you and show you correct hitching (ie. Safety chains, brake away cable etc etc) being safe in towing is key!
