Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2021 Volvo XC90

Question:

I have a 2021 Volvo XC90, and would like to add a hitch receiver so I can transport 3 or 4 bikes on a bike rack. I checked out Draw Tite’s website and also asked their customer service if the part number 76194 would fit my vehicle, but they couldn’t give me a clear answer and asked me to contact the service department at a Volvo dealer. But the service department at my dealership also didn’t provide a firm answer and noted that the manufacturer of the part should confirm that. Can you please help? Thank you.

Draw-Tite hasn't yet confirmed the fit of their # 76194 Class III on the 2021 Volvo XC90. This typically happens because they haven't actually been able to get their hands on an example of the vehicle.

This being said, Curt offers a confirmed fit, part # C13233. If you'll be towing with the hitch, you'll need a wiring harness, a ball mount/hitch pin and a trailer ball. For a wiring harness, Curt hasn't confirmed fit of a plug and play option yet, so I'd recommend a hardwired taillight harness, part # C59236. For a ball mount, use # D-28 and # PC-3 for a hitch pin. For a 1-7/8 inch trailer ball, use # 19260 or # 63845 for a 2 inch ball.

If you don't yet have a bike rack, you certainly can't go wrong with the Swagman Traihead, part # S63380. The Trailhead can handle 4 bikes weighing up to 35 lbs apiece. The rack features sturdy rubber cradles to hold your bikes securely without damaging them, with an added anti-sway feature that prevents the bikes from swinging back and forth while being transported.

I've linked to an installation video for the hitch as well as to a demonstration video for the bike rack I recommended.
