2021 Chrysler Pacifica

easy to order. came quickly. fit my '21 chrysler pacifica hybrid no problem. had it installed at my local [shop] for just $xx! using it just for a bike rack!

2020 Chrysler Pacifica

I needed to elongate a clearance hole for a small non mounting bolt on the 2020 Pacifica. Took awhile using a Dremel tool. Other then that the installation went well.

2023 Chrysler Pacifica

Fast Delivery...Great service!

2021 Chrysler Pacifica

This is the 2nd Curt hitch purchased from etrailer. I am satisfied with the pricing and quick delivery. The installation of this hitch was more difficult and time consuming, even with the help of my son & his wife, both mechanical engineers. The instructions did not exactly match up with the underbody panels on my Chrysler Pacifica Pinnacle. Fortunately I did not have to do any additional drilling but did have to re-cut a portion of the panel several times to make the hitch line up correctly. Total time spent was about 3 hours. Conversely, I installed a hitch by myself on a Kia Sorrento without a problem. Were it not for confusing installation instructions, I would give the hitch 5 stars. The hitch is installed and looks great. It will be used primarily to carry a bike rack.

No drilling is required for installation but access holes may need to be enlarged. Underbody panels or fascia must be temporarily removed, then trimming may be needed to reattach said panel or fascia. Exhaust must be temporarily lowered for installation. For your hybrid model, you may even have to temporarily remove the emissions canister during install.

2012 Chrysler Pacifica

The hitch is well built and mounts in solid way to the frame. I mounted this to a Chrysler Pacifica along with a wiring harness from etrailer. This was my second time purchasing and self-installing a product from etrailer (the previous was for a Honda Fit) and I have to say it was a lot easier the last time. This installation took my father-in-law and I about 12 hours to complete, and we are both handy with a nice set of tools. It was one of the more complicated DIY jobs I have undertaken, especially considering that the instructions say it should take an hour and a half.
My recommendation is to buy this hitch, but have a pro install it, and make sure you get a flat price for the installation, not an hourly rate, because it will probably take them longer than anticipated as well.

2017 Chrysler Pacifica

Purchased receiver hitch for my ‘17 Chrysler Pacifica. Directions were very good except for the scale on a picture showing where to cut the heat shield. I viewed the Utube how to and cut it to match the picture ignoring the scale.
Was required to remove an emissions canister and the one M6 bolt that came with the hitch was a bit dodgy of a way to remount the canister. I obtained 2 longer bolts, washers and spacers to remount. Other then those little issues the install went perfectly.
I really liked the hardware kit including spring wire to fish the hitch mounting bolts thru the frame. Other hitches I’ve purchased didn’t include them.

2019 Chrysler Pacifica

So I ordered the Curt hitch because it needed less cutting of the underbody panel. The installation was a lot harder than the video makes you believe. I assumed that when they skip over certain steps they do it for clarity and brevity. Turned out they didn't want to cover the hard parts. Torquing two out of three passenger side nuts is impossible- the muffler blocks access and a torque wrench can't be properly positioned. The middle nut is hard to tighten at all- nothing fits there. That part could be made easier by removing one more muffler hanger, but that hanger is in the middle of the van, around the second row and is hard to access without a lift. The worst part of the process was reattaching the rear muffler hanger. The installed hitch blocks movement of the muffler, so the hanger needs to be stretched a lot, and the working space there is limited. I probably spent an hour trying to get it on. Needless to say, this step is not on the video.
I knew that I'd need to trim the rear mounting point of the evap canister. What came as a surprise that the front mount also didn't fit, it was right over one of hitch bolts. It had to be trimmed even more. Maybe a model year specific difference?
The hitch itself is made of thick steel and heavy. It is what people called "overengineered", but should be called "underengineered" because they just slapped it together to be as strong as possible without the need. It is thicker than any body or suspension part in the van. I ordered a 1.25" light duty hitch, but that thing looks like it could tow a train. It is visible not only from behind, but form sides and compromises the departure angle. The hitch opening is not flush with the bumper, it sits deeper. Just enough deeper for my bike rack to be to close to the body of the van. I'm taking some blame for not fully researching it, but considering what I see on other vehicles, the hitch should be flush with the bumper.
I think I would better off with Draw-Tite, which requires more trimming, but comes with a proper evap canister relocation kit and longer hitch.


Hitch fits great and looks nice. I hardly notice it. I use it for a bike rack and it's done a great job so far.
