Hitch & Roof Rack for 2018 Chrysler Pacifica


Hi, Im looking for a trailer hitch and roof rack rails for a Chrysler Pacifica 2018 non-hybrid. I see ions for hidden hitches that fit my vehicle and my question is if those hidden hitches will further lower the vehicle clearance. Can I please have your recommendation on this? Im not going to be towing with this, just a bike rack and cargo box. I dont see any compatible roof rails that dont require drilling. Should I get the factory rails instead? Thank you

Regarding a hitch for your Pacifica, I would definitely use the Draw-Tite # 76046 Class-3 hitch. The 2" receiver size has more options available than the smaller 1-1/4" size receivers. It has a nice finish, a bracket for trailer wiring, and a limited lifetime warranty. This hitch will not have a negative impact on road clearance as there are other parts (like the exhaust) that hang lower than it.

It's beefy 2" receiver will easily hold a bike rack like the Thule # TH9058 “Camber” 2-bike rack or the Swagman # S63380 “Trailhead” 4-bike rack. Each rack has the “Tilt” feature to allow access to the rear of the vehicle, and an anti-rattle hitch pin for a quiet ride.

You could also add a small cargo carrier like the Curt # C18145 which will help you free up interior space when it it time for a road trip. This carrier just plugs into your hitch receiver, and can be used on your other vehicles with a hitch as well.

Regarding the roof rack, we do not have a verified fit for the 2018 Pacifica. The factory does offer a proprietary system available for roof cargo.
