Fits my 2020 Hybrid Escape and looks nice. Installation was pretty simple, except I needed to enlarge both the hole used to pass bolts through and the elongated holes in the frame rail. I used a Dremel since that's what I had on hand. I wish the holes in the hitch matched the bolt holes in the vehicle and that the bolt heads were modified so there wouldn't be any need for vehicle modification. I feel it's a bit over-built, especially for the hybrid since the OEM hitch has a max tongue load of 350lb and hybrid is rated for a 1500lb trailer. I'll also mention the foot activated liftgate still works. Oh.. and I also wish the bolts were a little bit longer. Some of them just barely peek out the other side of the nut.

This hitch receiver is strong, and will most likely last longer than me. However, the square receiver part is tilted slightly to the right. I got it installed by a pro, and it is installed horizontally correctly. I think the welder or a welding machine did not do a very good job. I am concerned that when I install a cargo carrier, the carrier will be tilted also, which my wife and I will not like. I am attaching a picture, and it shows a very slight lilt. That tilt will be amplified with the carrier because it's 5 feet long. I don't want to go through the hassle of getting it removed and returning, so I will keep it.

Very solid Hitch. Looks like it is made very well (heavy). Pat C helped me with the order. Installed on a 2020 Ford Escape Sport Hybrid using a small trailer. Hitch fit well, I had to enlarge the front bolt holes.

Very good Trailer hitch.

This hitch fit our 2020 Escape Titanium Hybrid perfectly! As a 68 yr old, I was able to install this hitch single-handedly (with the help of a piece of firewood cut to the appropriate length to support the other end of the hitch) in about an 90 minutes while laying on the ground. The online video is very helpful and we'll done! NOTE for you DIY's: I was able to insert the backing plates and the bolts without enlarging the slots on the sides of the frame rails. CAUTION: wear safety goggles to keep the sand and dirt from getting in your eyes while working under the vehicle, you'll be thankful afterwards! I couldn't be happier with my dealings with etrailer or with the quality of this hitch!

Fit to size on our 2020 Ford Escape. No help, just have the right tools. A one person job but it would go a lot faster with two since the hitch weight can get tired after a while. I used 2 4x4s to support it. The longest part and semi difficult was fishing the plates and bolts through the frame. You definitely need small fingers for this part (I used my wife for this). Great for a small trailer and for towing our bikes.

Hitch came on time well packed black and white photocopied pics no use but the exploded view self explanatory. Have to go do 2020 Escape Hybrid have to lower exhaust down to get the hitch anywhere near fished bolts so at 68 it took best part of 2 hrs but am very happy with finished result looks very neat with receiver showing below rear bumper

Installed in 30min. Super easy. Instructions say to make a hole bigger but it’s not needed, you can feel the bolts in threads first(while on the fish line) into the oval hole on the outside of the frame rail.

2021 Ford Escape

Great hitch for the 2021 Ford Escape titanium hybrid. The only thing is it’s not necessarily so easy to install as advertised. Luckily the dealership I bought my car from agreed to install for free because they had to modify the exhaust hanger (bend it a bit) to prevent the hanger from rubbing on the hitch. Not a huge deal, but if we were installing ourselves it would have been an issue.

Do not purchase the DrawTite (76424 I believe) hitch for a 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid. Etrailer’s website said it would work and it certainly does not. After more digging and calling Curt directly, I discovered that this fit despite Etrailer’s website saying it wouldn’t. Also, the mounting bolts fit through my frame rail hole without having to enlarge it. Just took some forceful pushes. Other than that, it fit great. You will not have to modify or cut the exhaust heat shield - trust me, I found this out the hard way with the DrawTite hitch instructions telling me to do so only to find out that their hitch was a bust. Now I have half of a heat shield and a quote for $90 from Ford to order a new one. The junkyard search begins - thanks DrawTite. Despite all of this headache, the Curt hitch is perfect. Great build quality, solid paint, and should do everything I need.

Easy install for one person and a short transmission Jack. The "fish" lines worked incredibly well. No grinding needed to get bolts into the frame. I did have to grind 1/16 off the bolt closest to the exhaust mounts as they protruded over the hitch against the exhaust bracket. Took all of 10 minutes with a dremmel and carbide cutter. Took less than 1.5 hours in my driveway.

The customer service at eTrailer is amazing! This American-made hitch was out of stock, and I decided I wanted to wait for it to come back in stock as opposed to purchasing the non-American competitor's hitch. The cost went up a little bit once it came back in stock, but eTrailer credited me the price difference. It also arrived quickly after it was shipped - only took a few days! It also came back into stock several weeks earlier than what was anticipated. Happy to say I am getting my new hitch installed this weekend and can't wait to put my bike rack on it for the season :)

Bolted on beautifully to our 2020 Ford Escape. It's tucked up tight underneath with only the 2X2 receiver and chain loops exposed discretely under the bumper. You do need to enlarge one hole on each side of the vehicle frame to pass the bolts through but that's normal and expected. I recommend a carbide reamer for this. All the instructions were clear and accurate.

not as easy to install as your video, but I should add I did it by myself with no lift, so it went together great. Had to file out one hone back hole to make it fit, but no problem after that. A very good product

Relatively easy installation. I like that it is hidden and not protruding outside the bumper. Nothing to hit my leg on. Its black so it really doesn't even show!

2020 Ford Escape

The hitch receiver fits great and feels really solid. No concerns about meeting the weight class. The dimensions are spot on for my 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid. The cross bar and receiver tube fit up high and don't reduce the ground clearance at all. It took me longer than average to install but I was working alone and being careful not to bung up anything on this new vehicle. Don't underestimate the effort to enlarge the access holes in the body frame. A hand file or a small Dremel tool won't do. Pick up the die grinder or a reaming bit and get the job done.

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver Fit for 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid
    There is a trailer hitch receiver that fits your 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid, though it is different than the one you mentioned. I confirmed with Curt that the hitch that fits your 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C23FR. If you also plan on towing, the trailer wiring harness that fits your '20 Escape Hybrid is the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # TE54FR. I have added links to the installation instructions of both for you to check out as well.

  • Comparing the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver Part C23FR and Part CU56FR for a 2020 Ford Escape
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C23FR and part # CU56FR are virtually identical. They are both bolt-on USA made options which fit a 2020 Ford Escape. The former has a few small cuts in the flange which will accommodate hybrid models but it will also fit non-hybrid models as well. Therefore, I recommend going with the most cost effective option as they are both fits for a non-hybrid model. If you'll be towing don't forget the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness part # TE54FR and etrailer...

You are only lowering the exhaust to make enough room to insert the receiver and access the fasteners.

    For your 2021 Ford Escape Hybrid I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C23FR which is a confirmed fit for your vehicle. I like this hitch over the Draw-Tite # DT56MR due to Curt hitches being made in the USA, and them using a more durable powder coat finish to better protect the hitch from chips and scratches, and help it better resist rust and corrosion. To get this hitch installed on your Escape you will need to open up an access hole on each side of the hitch to fit the...

I recommend going with a 2" receiver and using a hitch adapter to convert it from 2" to 1-1/4". Go with the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # C23FR, which is confirmed to fit your vehicle. This offers a simple bolt-on installation process and requires no welding or drilling. For the adapter, use Hitch Reducer 2" to 1-1/4"...

    The Curt # C23FR will indeed fit your 2021 Ford Escape SEL with hands free lift gate, but it will only be able to be used on either side of the receiver. I included an install video we did on a 2020 as well. The bike rack will depend on how many bikes you will be carrying, what type of bikes they are, and how you prefer to carry them. With that being said, the Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR will carry four 35 pound bikes and is highly recommended.
