Recommended Trailer Hitch 2022 Ford Escape


I need a trailer hitch for my 2022 Ford Escape to haul a bike rack, what's the best option?


Expert Reply:

I suggest the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver, # C23FR. This is a Class III - 2", custom fit hitch designed specifically for the Ford Escape. This bolt-on installation comes complete with needed hardware kit and installation instructions included. This hitch will not interfere with the hands free action of opening the tailgate. You will of course need to go to the left or right side of the hitch to use that hands free set up, but it still works.

This hitch is rated for a maximum gross trailer weight of 3,500 lbs. and a maximum tongue weight of 525 lbs. Please refer to your vehicle specific owners manual for the limitations of your 2022 Ford Escape.

You stated that you want a hitch to haul a bike rack but I will add the recommended wiring harness for you to refer back to if you later decide that want to be able to haul a small trailer. That will be the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector, # C75CR and the Curt Towing Starter Kit for 2" Hitches, # C45534.

This Curt T-Connector will quickly and easily install on your Ford Escape providing a 4-way trailer connector. It plugs directly into existing wiring so no splicing of the original OEM wiring harness is needed and even comes with a dust cap for the 4-way flat connector.

Please note the linked product review and installation videos below.
