What Hitch Bike Rack Do You Recommend for My 2021 Lexus RX 450H?


Im having trouble finding a bike rack hitch for this 2021 Lexus - do you have any recommendations? If the bike hitch is not out yet for the the 2021, what bike rack would you recommend using? I am concerned about damaging my new car. Thanks!!

For a great hitch for your 2021 Lexus RX 450h, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 75540. Not only does this hitch provide you with 675 pounds of maximum tongue weight and 4,500 pounds of gross trailer weight, it also involves a concealed crosstube for a more factory look.

As far as a bike rack for the hitch, I recommend the Saris Freedom Bike Rack for 2 Bikes - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches # SA4412B or the fat bike version # SA4412B-FB (if you have fat bikes with tires from 2-1/4 inches - 5 inches wide). The Freedom comes with a 60 pound per-bike capacity and accommodates wheelbases up to 48 inches long from axle to axle. It also has the benefit of 8 inches of additional rise for greater ground clearance. With the shank length of the Freedom, you will have no bumper clearance issues when using the Freedom on the # 75540. If you want extra rack security with the Freedom, I recommend the Hitch Tite Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock for Saris Bike Racks # SA3022 along with the Saris Cable Lock # SA981.
