Draw-Tite Tested Tough

Draw-Tite Tested Tough

Draw-Tite's Tested Tough program provides testing standards far superior to those outlined by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), the go-to source for engineering professionals.



Each Draw-Tite trailer hitch receiver undergoes extensive fatigue testing and static testing with the ball mount that is either supplied or recommended for use with that particular hitch, thus ensuring results that are applicable to real life use. Fatigue testing is also conducted on hitches rated for use with weight-distribution systems.


In addition, Draw-Tite performs static testing on a simulated automobile, as opposed to the rigid fixture used for SAE testing, resulting in a more true-to-life scenario.


etrailer.com Technical Support

At etrailer.com we're committed to the products we sell, and to our customers. Our experienced and knowledgeable staff are available via both phone and email to address your questions and concerns for the lifetime of your hitch. The technicians at etrailer perform hitch installations on a daily basis, making them a valuable resource for do-it-yourselfers. The one-on-one, personal service you'll receive comes straight from an expert in the towing and automotive field. We've installed it, we've wired it and we've towed with it, so whatever your question, we can answer it.

Fit, quality, instructions and customer support were top notch. Got a new 2020 Ford Escape on Jan 26th, ordered the hitch the next day, then tore my rotator cuff so couldn’t install until today. But the install was quick easy and exactly like the video. I’d recommend etrailer any day of the week! Thanks!!

Installed it on my 2020 Escape Sport Hybrid AWD. Confirmed fit, as advertised! I was worried about finding one that fit since that the model is still pretty new redesign. It wasn't too bad to install (I'm not a professional), and I got it done in an evening. Didn't need an exhaust hangar removal tool -- I just used some grease and a pair of pliers. For resizing the access hole, I used a Dremel with a Silicon Carbide Grinding Stone bit and it didn't take much grinding. Other than that, I followed the directions and it was pretty straightforward. The product itself feels very sturdy and it's heavy. It almost feels like overkill since I'm only going to be putting a bike carrier on it. Only not-so-good thing was some of the black paint was flaking off already, on arrival. It's not in a visible spot though.

Looks like a good product. Came in good condition and no parts are missing. It will a week or two before I install it. Busy with other projects.

by:
2014 Ford Escape

Took a total of about 35 minutes to install, definitely a better fit than the earlier 2014 escape models, no trimming exhaust shelds! Just remove 2 exhaust bolts, enlarge 2 holes in sub frame. The most time consuming part was fishing the lock plates and bolts through the subframe.. then tighten the hitch and install the 2 exhaust bolts! Easy!!

easy to order, simple installation, nearly perfect fit. I had to grind the access holes larger to get the bolts into the frame rail. also had to shim the front bolt locations due to a sheet metal transition not accounted for. my shim prevented the hitch from pointing downwards a little

  • Will Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver Fit a 2020 Ford Escape Titanium Hybrid
    The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # DR47FR is a fit for your 2020 Ford Escape Titanium Hybrid as indicated by the Q&As that you've seen. From what I could find it looks like Draw-Tite has gone back and forth as to whether this will fit or not, but they now have it listed as a fit for the Hybrid and we actually have photos another customer posted to prove it! I have attached those photos for you to check out. Have fun riding your bike!

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack for 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid
    We do have a trailer hitch confirmed to fit all models of the 2020 Ford Escape, including the Hybrid - the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # DR47FR. This has a 2 inch receiver, and a tongue weight capacity of 675 lbs, perfectly suitable for a bike rack. If you're also in the market for a bike rack, I really like the RockyMounts WestSlope 3 Bike Rack # RKY10223 because it holds your bikes by the wheels for zero frame contact, and the open design in the center makes it super easy...

  • Will Hands Free Liftgate of 2020 Ford Escape Still Work with Draw Tite Hitch Installed
    We've found that if you kick to either side of the hitch opening of the Draw Tite hitch # DR47FR that fits your 2020 Ford Escape the rear door will open still. The factory hitch might be a different story which is why they offer a way to relocate the sensors. We don't have a way to do this but I am sure the harness and kit is available at a Ford dealer. If you are looking for custom fit trailer wiring for your Escape as well we have the Tekonsha kit part # TE54FR as well. This installs...

  • 2 inch Hitch Recommendation for 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid
    For your 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid Titanium the Curt hitch part # C23FR would be a great option for a 2 inch hitch. It has a mostly hidden appearance which allows it to be slightly less visible and also has great ground clearance with the best towing capacities.

  • Draw Tite Hitch That Fits 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid
    Yes, the Draw Tite hitch part # DR47FR is a confirmed fit for the hybrid models of the 2020 Ford Escape like what you have. This would fit and work great! For trailer wiring you'd then want the Tekonsha kit part # TE54FR for an easy to install and reliable option. If you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes...

Not everyone who installs a trailer hitch plans to tow a trailer which is why the wiring wasn't included. Some people only want to carry a bike rack or cargo carrier.

  • Recommendation for Trailer Hitch Receiver on Chrysler Pacifica 2020
    There are a few things to consider when comparing the Curt # C13383 and Draw-Tite # 76046 Custom Fit - Class III - 2" Trailer Hitch Receivers on your Chrysler Pacifica, but I recommend the Draw-Tite. First, is TW and GTW capacities; the Curt has 400 lbs. TW and 4,000 lbs. GTW while the Draw-Tite has 675 lbs. TW and 4,500 lbs. GTW. You want to consult your Pacifica's owner's manual to check its capacities, but the Draw-Tite gives you the advantage here with its higher abilities. Second,...

    The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class II - 1-1/4" # DT92RR is confirmed to fit all 2020 Ford Escape models with the exception of the Hybrid. I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # DR47FR instead. This is a stronger Class III hitch that will provide more versatility should you need it in the future. I have attached an installation video of the hitch for your reference.

  • 2020 Ford Escape Titanium Hybrid AWD Trailer Hitch
    We don't offer a 1-1/4 inch receiver for your Escape, but we do have a Class III hitch with the 2 inch receiver from Draw-Tite, part # DR47FR. The hitch is compatible with all models of the 2020 Ford Escape, so it'll fit your Titanium Hybrid perfectly. If your bike rack is only compatible with 1-1/4 inch hitches, an adapter sleeve, part # HT02 is available. Unfortunately, the # CU56FR Curt hitch you mentioned isn't compatible with Titanium or Hybrid models, so it wouldn't work for you. If...

  • Curt Trailer Hitch vs. Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch on 2020 Ford Escape
    When it comes to the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C23FR compared to the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # DR47FR for your 2020 Ford Escape there are a couple of differences between the two that I'll go over for you. The first is the style, with the Curt hitch being a concealed crosstube which only shows the receiver, while the Draw-Tite is a visible crosstube, so the Curt is going to maintain your Escape's look better than the Draw-Tite.

    You are correct the Curt hitch part # CU56FR on the 2020 Ford Escape is not recommended for weight distribution.

Instead, you will want to use the Draw-Tite # DR47FR, which has been confirmed as a fit on your Escape Hybrid. When it comes to the operations of the hands free lift gate, we have found that in order to use this feature you will need to kick on either side of the hitch receiver, but it will still operate and allow you utilize the hands free opening of your rear cargo gate.

The Curt Hitch part # C23FR is a fit for your 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid and would be a great solution even though it has more weight capacity than you'd need.

This hitch receiver has a maximum tongue weight of 675 lbs. Please check your owner's manual for the maximum tongue weight and adhere to the lowest value between the two.
