Will The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 75751 Fit 2012 Ford Escape XLT w/ Factory 1-1/4 Hitch


I have a 2012 Escapr XLT with a fatory 1.25inch hitch and want to install a Draw Tite 75751 2inch hitch. Can it be accomplished with the factory hitch still in place?


Expert Reply:

The item you referenced, Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, part # 75751, will fit the 2012 Ford Escape models with factory 1-1/4 inch hitch. You will not need to remove the factory hitch to install the # 75751 hitch.

To complete your towing setup, you may need the following:
Ball Mount, part # 2923
2 Inch Hitch Ball, part # 19258
Pin and Clip, part # PC3

For wiring, if your Escape has backup sensors you will need to use T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness, part # 118551. If your Escape is equipped with a tow package, you will need to use Draw-Tite Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring, part # 118251.

I have linked a video installation of the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, part # 75693 on a 2009 Ford Escape as the installation should be the same. Also linked is an FAQ on trailer hitch installation tips.
