Rugged, Matte Black Finish

The sturdy steel construction is protected with a matte black finish for added durability. This unique powder coating gives etrailer hitches a carbide-like appearance and a rugged look that sets them apart from traditional glossy hitches. In addition to being rust and corrosion resistant, the tough matte coating hides dirt, scuffs, and dings better than a glossy finish.

2023 Ford Escape

I e-mailed support to verify fit to a 2023 Ford escape PHEV, and they said its an exact fit. I knew from looking at the photos I would have to modify the hitch frame. Using a cut-off disk I removed several inches on the drivers side frame and sacrificed one bolt hole to accomodate a mounted plastic box that Ford installed on part of the frame. I could not locate all of the fasteners for the box so removing some steel was my best option. My hitch will only be used to haul a bike carrier or an aluminum cargo box, so this hitch will do the job. No modifications had to made to the vehicle. Every thing was stock when complete with the hitch install. Photo taken was without the heat shield, the last part to install when the job was done.

Ford Escape

The hitch fit perfectly and was easy to install on my 2021 Ford Escape Hybrid. Customer service prior to purchasing was excellent when I had questions. The hitch was delivered on time and in good condition.



The hitch has been perfect with no issues. It looks like it came from the factory instead of an after market product. I would certainly purchase it again.

@Morris Awesome, we're glad your # e89YR etrailer receiver hitch is working well for you!

2023 Ford Escape

Easy to install within 1 hr. Solid hitch 2023 Ford Escape St line.

2020 Ford Escape

Install was straight forward, your videos didn’t miss anything and I was able to install it by myself. I wished I had a helper though! Lol


Hitch went on exactly like the YouTube video instructions. Looks great and arrived on time. I would definitely buy this hitch from etrailer again and will recommend to anyone.


Was easy to install. Glad that it had fish wires or there would be no way to install the frame bolts. Looks like a factory job...


Putting the trailer together would’ve been a whole lot easier if the instructions that were sent were for this exact trailer. We had to follow the [online] video to do this. As for the materials for the trailer itself, the base looks decent, but the second tier parts, specifically the brackets/plates to connect the tubes, look ridiculous. The quality of these parts don’t belong on a $x,xxx trailer. Etrailer was great to work with and they have no control on the quality of this trailer as it was shipped directly from Malone. With that being said, I would buy from Etrailer again, not sure I’d pay this much for attachments to a trailer from Malone.


I’ve ordered hitches from in the past. Their service is superb.

2021 Ford Escape

The look and ease of installation was awesome. Only draw back I had was I feel like the bolts should of been a little longer. Just a touch. Mime are about flush with the nut. The instructions were detailed and easy to read.

2022 Ford Escape

See other reviews. To fit the 2022 escape I had to use a grinding bit to make the holes line up on the frame. It was off on one side about a half inch (the width of one bolt). Haven’t put it to use yet hauling yet but after the hole was drilled in the car frame the hitch went on securely. Definitely not something a novice would have an easy time installing.

2020 Ford Escape

The wife and I installed the hitch. The only drawback was the weight. It's not light but then it's well made too. It took us working together to get it installed. I don't think one person could do it. I did use a very small screwdriver to keep the bolt from moving as I attached the nut. that really did help. The videos are a huge help too and thanks for them.

2022 Ford Escape

This is my 3rd hitch from e-trailer. Never disappointed. Service is over the top and information plentiful. The videos are priceless making you believe you can do anything.

2020 Ford Escape

Install went well. 1/4" die grinder with rotary rasp made quick work of enlarging the forward holes. I used a knife blade to hold the bolts in place while starting the nuts. They kept pushing back up into the frame rail. One incident when I shifted the impact wrench from one hand to the other and accidently reversed it. Shot the bolt and washer back into the frame rail but was able to hook them with a copper wire and pull it back into place. Whew!


Will be perfect for wife’s electric whe rlchair


delivery/prompt/all parts there/with instructions. thanks!


Delivery was on time, the item was packed well, everything was as in the package and the installation was exactly as described in the video. I am completely satisfied and will recommend etrailer to anyone look for towing items. I apologize for having no photos but I can assure you that it looks seamless and I can hardly notice that the hitch is there. It's as though it was put on at the Ford factory.


Good price came faster then I thought. Have not installed yet. Great customer service.

Ford Escape

The hitch for my 2020 Escape Hybrid arrived very quickly. After watching the installation video I was confident the install wouldn't be too difficult. It was a piece of cake. The worse part of the job was making the forward most frame holes a little bigger. The fish wires worked great and the fit was spot on. It's a very solid hitch and appears very well made.


Really like how easy it was to install and comes in handy when my family goes on vacation to haul extra supplies.


The hitch worked as expected. Easy in stallation.


It is awesome

2023 Ford Escape

Ford Escape

This worked well on a 2022 Ford Escape Hybrid AWD. The installation videos were very useful and the tips were spot on. I was wary of fishing the bolts into the frame, but it was surprisingly easy. The only tough part of the installation was holding the hitch receiver in place while the nuts were threaded onto the bolts. This was mainly due to the weight of the receiver and the fact that I only had the car raised on jack stands. Can definitely use another pair of hands to hold the hitch receiver in place while the other person screws the nuts on. Good fit otherwise.

Ford Escape

Working fantastic, looks good on my Ford Escape. They did a great job installing it on the car.

Ford Escape

Great hitch. Fair price. Installed on my mother-in-law's Ford Escape so she can get a mobility scooter

  • Will Installing etrailer Class III Hitch on 2022 Ford Escape Block Hands-Free Liftgate Sensors
    With the etrailer # e89YR hitch installed, the receiver tube will block the sensors in the middle of the bumper, but if you wave your foot several inches to the right or left of the receiver, the sensors will pick up the movement and operate the liftgate. You might need to hunt around a bit until you find the sweet spot, but the liftgate will still work.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2023 Ford Escape
    For your 2023 Ford Escape I recommend the etrailer # e89YR. This custom-fit Class III hitch has a 2" receiver and a bolt-on installation. What sets it apart from others is the matte black powder coat finish. This gives it an OEM look and also helps hide dirt and dings when compared to a glossy finish. I have attached an installation video below for your reference.

  • Why Isn't There 2 inch Hitch that Fits 2012 Honda Accord for Wheel Chair Carrier
    For lighter duty vehicles like your 2012 Honda Accord there are only 1-1/4 inch hitches available like the Draw Tite part # 24899 since the vehicle just doesn't have the capacity for heavier accessories like a wheel chair carrier. Only solutions would be a vehicle with higher weight capacities or use the Draw Tite hitch I mentioned to to a small trailer. If you were going to go the trailer route you would also need trailer wiring like with the # 118420.

  • What Trailer Hitch Fits My 2021 Ford Escape Hybrid?

With this hitch, you will receive 525 pounds of maximum tongue weight capacity and 3,500 pounds of maximum gross towing weight capacity. If you need a hitch pin and a ball mount for your hitch, I recommend the Pin/Clip # PC3 along with the Ball Mount # BM20.

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver For a 2020 Ford Escape Compatible With a Weight Distribution Hitch
    Currently the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # DR47FR is the only aftermarket receiver we offer for your 2020 Ford Escape that is rated for a weight distribution hitch. It will have the lower receiver height as it is intended to also fit vehicles that do not come with a factory tow package and the supporting rear fascia. I do recommend contacting your Ford dealer to ensure your Escape will be able to support the amount of weight you are looking to tow.

  • Higher Capacity Trailer Hitch that Fits 2021 Ford Escape Non-Hybrid
    The most similar and highest capacity hitch we offer for the non-hybrid models of the 2021 Ford Escape would be the etrailer # e89YR which has a tongue weight rating of 525 lbs and a total trailer weight capacity of 3,500 lbs. Worth mentioning is that the max capacity a 21' Escape can have is 3,500 lb so using the etrailer hitch will allow you to use the full capacity of your vehicle.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2022 Ford Escape Hybrid
    For your 2022 Ford Escape Hybrid we have the etrailer hitch part # e89YR as a confirmed fit which is a really great option. It's mostly hidden and has great towing capacities as well. Only the hitch opening hangs below the rear bumper which allows it to be mostly hidden and this also helps with ground clearance. If you need trailer wiring too the Tekonsha kit part # TE54FR is an easy fit and has a very reliable converter box.

  • DIfference Between Curt and etrailer Trailer Hitch for 2023 Ford Escape
    The Curt # C23FR and etrailer Hitch # e89YR have the same design and specs. The main difference between the two is the powder coat finish. The Curt has a glossy finish while the etrailer hitch has a matte finish. The matte finish gives it more of an OEM look and typically blends better on the vehicle. This also does a better job hiding dirt and scratches compared to the glossy finish. If you aren't concerned with the look of the hitch I would choose whichever has the better price.
