Parts Needed To Tow A Trailer With A 2021 Chrysler Pacifica Without The Factory Tow Package


I have a 2021 Chrysler Pacifica non-hybrid and am looking to tow a trailer with it but it does not have the towing package. What all do I need?

We have all of the parts you need!

To be able to tow a trailer with your 2021 Chrysler Pacifica non-hybrid that does not have the tow package you will need a trailer hitch receiver, a vehicle wiring harness, and a ball mount, hitch ball, and hitch pin and clip.

Starting with the trailer hitch receiver I recommend going with the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C65CR due to it being made here in the USA, and having a hidden crosstube meaning once installed that the only visible part of the hitch will be the receiver itself as you can see in the included picture. This hitch as a 400lb tongue weight rating and 4000lb trailer weight rating making it a great option for towing, though you will need to check the towing capacity of your vehicle in the owner's manual and use the lower rating between the vehicle and hitch.

Moving on to the vehicle wiring harness you will need to know which style vehicle your Pacifica is, for example if you have a touring model you will need the # C56399, or if you have a limited model you will need the # TK96FR instead. If you are not sure which model your Pacifica is just send me the 7th digit of your VIN and I can identify it for you so you get the correct harness.

Lastly for a ball mount, hitch ball, and hitch pin and clip I recommend the etrailer Ball Mount Kit # 989900 as it includes two hitch balls, a 1-7/8" and 2", two ball mounts, a 1" rise/2" drop and a 2" rise/4" drop, along with a hitch pin and clip and carrying case.

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