2022 Honda Passport

Ordered this hitch for my new 2022 Passport Trailsport on a Saturday night and received it the following Thursday. Packaging was great and there was no damage to the hitch.
Took about 30 minutes to mount it. Highly recommend a second person to thread the first 2 bolts while you hold it in place. After that put some orange loctite on, spun the bolts in with an impact wrench and followed with my 1/2" torque wrench.
The hitch is strong, well built with nice welds and a nice finish. Bolts provided are high quality 10.9 grade with some beefy washers.
Very happy with this purchase and know I can get that last dump load run in before winter.

2022 Honda Passport

The install of the hitch was easy, and it looks great. The best part of the whole thing was working with etrailer. Their customer service was above and beyond. They were in contact with me the whole way with a personalized email when the order was placed, when it shipped, and when it was delivered. And the price was so affordable. An OEM receiver from Honda was going to be $230 just in freight. The shipping from etrailer was free. Overall a great experience!

2019 Honda Passport

Awesome hitch, great qualty and it shipped right on time. Awesome service looks great on my wife's Honda Passport. It was easy to install with 2 jack stands I had it done in about 30 mins.

looks and works great, for what we use it for this was a value product. If I get another SUV, I will get this hitch again.
Randy - 06/01/2022


I was really impressed when it arrived. I was expecting something of much less quality and durability. But when it arrived, it was strong and beefy, able to hold much more than the bicycle I intended to use it for. Now I might even think about a trailer someday! You are grade "A", from helping me on the phone to delivery before I expected, to the ease of installing it by myself on the driveway.


etrailer is the only place for me. I lease a new vehicle every few years for work and I always buy my hitch from this site. Never disappointed.

Honda Passport

What is there not to like. My wife and I with a small hydraulic jack to help stabilize installed this hitch on our new Honda Passport in under a half hour. I did have the benefit of a 1/2” impact gun. Oh and I am 74 yrs old. This hitch is very nice and everything is tucked under the vehicle so all you see is the receiver tube.

Honda Passport

2022 Honda Passport. Hitch is more expensive than hitches for other vehicles by about $49 in some cases.
Not much difference between hitches except for fitment.


2nd time ordering from etrailer.Ease of purchase and prompt shipping again. Purchased from few yrs ago.
Mounting was very easy as demonstrated in online video for the hitch.


The Curt C13421 is a perfect fit for recent Honda Passports. On my 2021 Passport Touring, the remote activation using one's foot to open the tailgate does not work as well after installation. It still works about 50% of the time, if one does the "kick" just to the left side of the receiver opening.
etrailer said the hitch was in stock when I ordered, but the ship date was 2 weeks later. I called to inquire why, and the said their shipping dept was way behind. However, they did price match a lower price I found on-line, and the hitch did ship after about 10 days. The UPS delivery was prompt, and I am, overall, pleased with quality of the Curt hitch and the service I received from etrailer.

The remote tailgate activation works much better than I originally thought. If one kicks just to the left of the receiver opening, the remote activation works almost 100 of the time. The hitch has worked well and I am very satisfied.

2019 Honda Passport

The hitch shipped fast & install was super easy!! This is my 2nd purchase with etrailer & wont be my last.


Fast & Easy to install, very good quali ty


The trailer hitch arrived in perfect condition 2 days after I ordered it. I installed it the same day in about 45 minutes and it looks great! I am very pleased with the purchase and service!


Great product, easy to install. I would recommend this hitch to anyone looking for this hitch and I purchase again if needed!


This trailer hitch was machined perfectly to fit all 4 bolts with clearance… no ‘file to fit’ effort required. Professionally fabricated and machined. Easy install.


Very heavy, but easy to install. Barely noticeable when nothing hitched, it’s pretty much flush with bumper.


It was heavy and needed 2 people to install but it was and easy DIY. It has been very reliable and extremely happy with the purchase. No issues after several moves with max loads.


The nuts that are welded into the frame need lots of cleaning . I would perfer a tap to clean the treads

Unless the vehicle is more than 2 or 3 years old, a battery terminal cleaner and a spray lubricant like # DW00254 do a great job of cleaning the threads of the nut welded into your vehicle frame.

2021 Honda Passport

Hitch was easy to install and fits very well. I like the clean look after installation - receiver is very close to bumper cover and there are no trailer wiring mounting brackets visible (in fact, none at all on this hitch). I do not happen to need trailer wiring since I only intend to use the hitch for hitch mounted accessories - primarily a bike rack.


This receiver fit perfectly. It is for the 2021 Honda passport sport. There is one online that looks the exact same but is a different model number and will not fit the 2021 passport. I bought it by mistake and had to return it. Shipping was fast and customer service is great. The website is an excellent source for all trailer hitch info. For one person installation tip… I used a small chain and s hook to lift and hook one side then bolted the other side and then unhooked the chain, held in place to get a bolt started. Took me about 30 minutes. Just take your time.


Hitch is very much heavy duty with good finish. The only negative is that the three mounting holes on right side of hitch (flange) didn’t line up with frame rail weldnut holes of vehicle. I had to file 1/64” from holes in order to thread mounting bolts.

It sounds like that the side brackets were knocked out of alignment which is why the bolt holes are not lining up. This can happen while in transit to our facility or to you. We do have a great FAQ that provides ways to move the brackets back into alignment so the hitch can be installed.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 05/23/2022


Mounting the hitch is a piece of cake. 15 minutes and that includes torquing the bolts
The trailer wiring harness took more time. The factory connector was taped up tight to a nearby harness. Had to cut the tape to free up connector which required partial removal of the drivers rear interior panel. Overall easy install.

It’s been a year and no problems
Ziggy - 01/06/2022

2021 Honda Passport

Arrived quickly and in great shape with streamlined instructions and parts. 136 ft/lb torq wrench required for install.


This hitch receiver was extremely high quality and easy to install as advertised. The wiring kit was also easy enough to plug in to my existing wiring harness. This is my second hitch receiver purchased from etrailer and I'm very satisfied!


Arrived quickly as promised, nicely boxed. A great value compared to the cost of a factory Honda hitch. I bought the hitch primarily to use with my Rockymounts Westslope 2 bike rack after purchasing a new 2021 Honda Passport. Keep in mind that when installing a factory Honda hitch, the rear bumper has to be removed, so it's not trivial to do yourself when going the factory hitch route. The Curt hitch is great alternative to the factory Honda hitch because the bumper does not need to be removed and the Curt hitch is mostly hidden.

The hitch arrived at about 4PM, and I had it installed before dinner using a floor jack and a couple jack stands to stabilize the receiver. So maybe 20-30 minutes. If you don't have these, you'll likely need two people to simplify installation. It is heavy to lift and bolt in without some sort of assistance. And after installation, I added a Curt cover, and it looks factory with only the receiver seen below the bumper. This keeps the original clean looking valance in place.

The Honda factory hitch sits about an 1 3/4 inches higher than the Curt hitch, but for me, I have the AWD model which sits probably the same amount higher than the 2WD. The Curt hitch actually appears to sit about the same height as the exhaust to be honest. Maybe slightly lower.

I am quite pleased with the appearance and how well the Curt hitch works with my Westslope 2 bike rack. I also saved quite a bit of money by ordering it from etrailer and installing the Curt hitch myself instead of going the Honda factory route.


Fast delivery. Well made and very easy to install. Took about 1/2 hour.

  • Does the Bumper Cover Have To Come Off To Install Curt Hitch On a 2019 Honda Passport
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13421 which is a fit for a 2019 Honda Passport will not require you to remove the rear bumper cover so the installation process is super easy, taking most only around 30 minutes to install. This is a great option with hidden cross tube design that makes for the best overall appearance. In regards to installation, simply raise the hitch into position and tighten down the bolts but that's it.

  • Is There Bumper/Fascia Cutting Required to Install Hitch on 2020 Honda Passport

  • Should Open Ends of Curt Hitch C13421 be Covered with Rubber Plug
    Having the crossbeam of the Curt trailer hitch # C13421 open instead of covered with a rubber cover would actually be more ideal in terms of preventing any corrosion. Rubber covers would not prevent all moisture from getting into the beam but they would drastically slow the evaporation process which means they'd hold moisture in the tube and cause corrosion to form faster.

  • Will the Curt Hitch C13421 Interfere With the Lift Gate Sensor on a 2021 Honda Passport
    Though the Curt # C13421 will definitely fit your 2021 Honda Passport, installing any hitch may interfere with Hands-free Liftgate sensors and functionality may be very limited or possibly lost. However, it is exceptionally rare for the use of the sensor to be completely lost. Typically you will just need to mess with it a little to find the spot where your foot will activate it and you will be good to go. If you check out the install video I included, the sensor is talked about as well.

  • Hidden Hitch Recommendation for 2022 Honda Passport
    For your 2022 Honda Passport the hitch I recommend is the Curt part # C13421 as it has great towing capacities and is mostly hidden since only hitch opening hangs below rear bumper. This allows it to be the least visible and also helps with ground clearance. I attached an install video for this for you to check out as well.
