Recommended Trailer Hitch for a 2020 Ford Ranger


I just got a 2020 Ford Ranger and now we need a trailer hitch and wiring to tow a trailer. What do you recommend?


Expert Reply:

The trailer hitch that I recommend for a 2020 Ford Ranger is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13417 which is a custom bolt-on fit that does not require any cutting or drilling. The process should actually only take you around 20 to 40 minutes. I have attached an install photo for you as well.

For a trailer wiring harness, the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness part # 22124 is your best option as it does not require any splicing therefore is almost entirely plug and play. I also recommend adding the 7- and 4-Pole Trailer Connector Socket part # HM40975 which gives you both a 4 and 7-way as well as a mounting bracket though this is not required.

If the trailer has brakes, I highly recommend the Autowbrake Electric Brake Controller part # 3430001 as it installs entirely on the trailer so you don't have to modify the vehicle which there is not a plug-in option for.
