Ground Clearance With Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver 76194 Installed On 2021 Volvo XC60


Looking at 2 receiver hitch for 2021 Volvo XC60 76194. I see the pix, and it appears that with the safety loops being located vertically below the receiver that the ground-to-hitch distance is pretty short. Any way to measure that for me before purchase?

Luckily we have the exact measurement you are looking for.

When we installed the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76194 on a 2020 Volvo XC60 we found that from the bottom of the safety chain loops to the ground is 9", and from the bottom of the receiver tube to the ground is 11" as shown in the included diagram.

The Draw-Tite # 76194 is a great option for your 2021 Volvo XC60 as it is a very strong trailer hitch receiver that has a maximum tongue weight rating of 900lbs, and a maximum trailer weight rating of 6000lbs. While these numbers are higher than the ratings Volvo lists in the owners manual of your vehicle which are a maximum tongue weight of 350lbs, and a maximum trailer weight of 1650lbs if the trailer does not have brakes, or 3500lbs if the trailer has brakes, you will know that this trailer hitch is strong enough to support any loads within the vehicles limits with ease.

If you are planning on towing with your XC60 you will also need trailer wiring, and a ball mount, hitch ball, and hitch pin and clip.

For wiring I recommend the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # 118773 which is a plug and play installation that will not require splicing into your factory wiring, and the included Powered ModuLite will use a wire run directly to the battery of your vehicle to protect the vehicle's wiring harness from damage.

Lastly I recommend the etrailer Ball Mount Kit # 989900 which includes two ball mounts, two hitch balls, two hitch pins and clips, and a carrying case.

I included installation videos for all of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.
