Comparing Curt and Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receivers For 2022 Ford Escape


I am looking for a trailer hitch receiver for my 2022 Ford Escape non-hybrid. Which options do I have?


Expert Reply:

For your 2022 Ford Escape non-hybrid there are two trailer hitch receiver options, the Curt # C23FR, and the Draw-Tite # DT95MR.

Both of these hitches share the same hidden crosstube design so that when the hitch is installed the only visible portion is the receiver itself.

However I recommend going with the Draw-Tite # DT95MR due to it having much higher ratings at 675lb tongue weight and 4,500lb tongue weight compared to the 525lb tongue weight and 3,500lb trailer weight ratings of the # C23FR.

If you will be towing a trailer with your Escape you will also need a vehicle wiring harness # TE54FR, along with a ball mount, hitch ball, and hitch pin and clip which can all be found in the etrailer Ball Mount Kit # 989900.

I included install videos of the recommend products along with a picture of the # DT56MR installed for you to take a look at.
