Three Bike Carrying Option for 2020 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid


Is the outway 3 also compatible with Pacifica hybrid?


Expert Reply:

Because the vehicle can be damaged due to the weight of 3 bikes it's not recommended that a 3 bike trunk mount rack be used on this vehicle. Your best bet would be to install a hitch and use a hitch mounted bike rack if you need to carry three bikes.

For a hitch, I'd recommend the Draw-Tite class II hitch, part # 36798-SK. This hitch is a no-drill application that most folks could install on their own if they're fairly handy. I've linked to the installation instructions.

If you were avoiding a hitch because you feel they're unsightly, this hitch has a concealed design that places the cross tube behind the bumper, the only thing that'll be visible from the rear is the receiver tube and the safety chain hooks as shown in the provided photo.

For a reasonably priced 3 bike rack, you can't go wrong with the Swagman Trailhead, part # S63365. The rack has all the essentials, sturdy rubber anti-sway cradles and straps to securely hold your bikes in place. The rack tilts rearward once the bikes are removed for easy cargo area access.

The combined cost of the hitch and the rack I recommended is quite a bit less than the Thule OutWay 3 # TH56BV you'd looked at.
