You’re on the right track here.
When looking at Ascents on the lot just ask to pop the rear bumper cover off and see if the one you want has the hitch installed. If there’s a hitch under the cover all it takes is a twist of 2 little finger screws at the bottom of the cover to remove it.
If it’s there, you’re all set. If not, the part itself is close to $400 so ask the dealer to have it installed and keep the price as close to that as possible. They should be able to install it in a couple hours.
Since you want a brake controller, make sure they leave you the wiring adapter to plug in. You’ll have to purchase a brake controller separately. This thread discusses installation and a lot of people recommend the Tekonsha P3
Everything is plug n play but you’ll have to find a location to mount the controller.

I hope that helps. Happy shopping!
