Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (13 Customer Reviews)

Perfect for light-duty towing, this custom, vehicle trailer hitch receiver features fully welded, gloss powder coated steel construction. Drawbar sold separately.


The hitch actually showed up a day sooner than stated. I put it in in a couple of hours. It fit perfectly and the instructions were excellent! Just to be on the safe side l added Loctite to all of the bolt threads. It looks great and is tucked very neatly under the bumper. Thanks!


Excellent hitch, fit was spot on. The long lanyard was helpful to pull the bolts thru the frame. My GT line KIA had two of the holes and drilling the others was not a problem, although the car is low to the ground. looks good blends in with the black lower skirt. Bought another hitch here for another vehicle. Great service !!!

Kia Forte

Works great on a 2020 KIA Forte GT. It is possible to install. You'll have to cut a small square hole in the plastic bumper for the hitch to come out and modify some of the frame but it will work. I took mine to a custom shop to get it installed.


Product worked great. Etrailer got the hitch shipped to me quickly.


Hangs kinda low and out. If clearance is important, get the higher cost ones


Order was processed quickly, delivery was very fast. Although corner of box was damaged, no parts were lost due to proper packing of smaller parts. cost was good. Product quality is very good.


Worked perfect and looks great!

2020 Kia Forte

Excellent service


Great product delivered fast

  • Does the Curt Hitch C55HR Require Drilling on My 2022 Kia Forte Sedan?
    Yes. With the only hitch we carry for your 2022 Kia Forte, the Curt Hitch - 1-1/4" # C55HR, there is a bit of drilling required for installation. The instructions require you to drill out the rear mounting holes on the bottom of the frame rails. I went ahead and attached a photo from the instructions that shows this step.

  • Can 2022 Kia Forte Tow Over 2,000 lbs With Class I Trailer Hitch
    While there are some tolerances in trailer hitches, like the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C55HR for your 2022 Kia Forte, it's never a good idea to exceed the weight rating as that's the most the manufacturer is comfortable saying the hitch is capable of dealing with. Aside from that, when I checked the online owner's manual for your Forte it looks like your vehicle is rated for much less than 2,000 lbs. So while the hitch might be able to keep up with 2,100 lbs for a bit, your vehicle...

  • How to Replace Spacers for Class I Curt Trailer Hitch for 2021 Kia Forte
    To get replacement spacers for the Class I Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C55HR for your 2021 Kia Forte you'll need the whole replacement hardware kit found as part # RHK on our site. This gives you the bolts, nuts, spacers, zip ties, and fishwire needed for the installation. The spacers aren't available individually but if you wanted to try getting some on your own here is their size - Square-hole spacer 1/4" x 1" x 3". Attached are the installation instructions for you to check out.

  • Curt Trailer Hitch Fit For 2023 Kia Forte
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C34UR that you purchased for your 2022 Toyota Corolla will only fit a 2020 - 2022 Toyota Corolla Sedan. For your 2023 Kia Forte you'll need the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C55HR instead. This has different mounting brackets that will match your newer vehicle as it's designed.

  • Recommended 4-Way Wiring Harness And Trailer Hitch for a 2022 Kia Forte
    Yes, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C55HR will fit on your 2022 Kia Forte! This trailer hitch has a maximum towing capacity of 2,000-lbs, a maximum tongue weight of 200-lbs, and has a 1-1/4" x 1-1/4" class I hitch opening. You are also going to need a set of wiring, like the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # C54ER. This wiring harness will plug into your vehicle's factory OEM wiring harness and will provide your vehicle with a 4-way flat...

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver Confirmed to Fit 2022 KIA Forte GT-Line For a Bike Rack
    Yes, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C55HR has been confirmed to fit all trim levels(except GT) of the new 2022 Kia Forte, including your GT-Line trim. The new GT has a new dual exhaust that will not allow it to fit properly. Since the Curt receiver has a class I rating you will need to ensure that your bike rack is safe to use with a class I receiver like the Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Rack # NV12G.

  • Is Drilling Required When Installing A Trailer Hitch Receiver On 2020 Kia Forte?
    Yes, you will need to enlarge a few holes and likely drill a few new holes in order to install a trailer hitch receiver onto your 2020 Kia Forte. I am showing that the two receivers available for your vehicle are the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # DT83MR and Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C55HR. I recommend the Curt as it is USA made and typically has higher quality paint. Both have instructions that show the necessary drilling and hole enlarging that needs to take place when...

  • Do You Have To Drill The Frame On the 2021 Kia Forte To Install the Curt Receiver?
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C55HR does require holes to be drilled in the frame as there is currently only one hole on each side of the frame available for mounting the receiver. Each additional hole on each side of the frame is required to provide the strength to hold the receiver in place while being used. There currently are no hitches available that do not require drilling to install them on your 2021 Kia Forte. I recommend installing a Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness...

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver and Wiring Harness That Will Not Obstruct Rear Camera On a 2021 Kia Forte
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C55HR will not block the rear camera on your 2021 Kia Forte. I recommend installing the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness # C54ER when you install the receiver. This will give you a 4-way flat connector that is needed in the event you tow a small trailer. It will also allow you to use Auxiliary Lights # C53201 if your hitch mounted accessory impairs the view of your tail lights.

  • Is Drilling Required to Install a Trailer Hitch Receiver on a 2021 Kia Forte?
    Yes, you will need to drill into the frame of your 2021 Kia Forte Sedan to install a trailer hitch. Out of the available options I recommend going with the Curt # C55HR because it has a hidden crosstube so the installation will look a lot more clean when installed. If you don't already have a bike rack then I recommend checking out the Kuat Sherpa # SH12B because this is a lightweight platform rack at 32 lbs and it is compatible with most adult bikes that don't have a front fender.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2021 Kia Forte
    There sure is! You'd want to use the Draw-Tite # DT83MR, as the # 24903 you'd looked at fits the previous generation vehicle and wouldn't fit your 2021 Forte. This being said, instead of the Draw-Tite # DT83MR which would be fully visible once installed, I'd recommend the partially concealed Curt # C55HR instead. Once installed, the crossbar of the Curt # C55HR would be concealed behind the vehicle's rear bumper fascia with only the receiver tube and the safety chain hoops being visible,...

  • Can You Carry a Mobility Scooter on a 2022 Kia Forte I have a 2022 Kia Forte that i
    The only trailer hitch options available for a 2022 Kia Forte are class 1, 1-1/4" like the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C55HR which is what I recommend. Unfortunately, this hitch won't be cut out for hauling a mobility scooter as they don't make mobility scooter carriers for this size and the weight capacity is not enough when used with an adapter as you said. Therefore, your only option would be to place the mobility scooter on a small trailer and tow it behind the vehicle if applicable....

  • Will Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver C55HR Fit a 2021 Kia Forte LXS Sedan?
    Yes, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver item # C55HR you were looking at is confirmed to fit your 2021 Kia Forte LXS Sedan. The Curt item # C55HR has a 200lb tongue weight rating and a 2000lb trailer weight rating making it a great option for carrying a bike rack, cargo carrier, or even light duty towing. If you are planning on using your trailer hitch receiver for a bike rack I recommend the Hollywood Racks Destination Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Frame Mount item # HLY94FR...

  • Can Curt C11368 Class I Hitch Be Removed From 2017 Kia Forte and Installed on 2020 Model
    The 2017 Kia Forte was the second to last model year of the 2nd generation Forte, while the 2020 is the second model year of the 3rd gen. There were enough changes in the structure of the vehicle from the 2nd to the 3rd gen that unfortunately your Curt # C11368 from your 2017 Forte will not work on your 2020 model. For the 2020 Forte sedan, I'd recommend the Curt # C55HR Class I hitch you'd looked at. As you can see in the photo I provided, once installed the # C55HR will be much more...
