Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2022 Ford Escape Hybrid


I would like to add a trailer hitch to my 2022 Ford Escape Hybrid. I also need a connection for trailer lights. Can you tell me what I should get? Thank you.

For your 2022 Ford Escape Hybrid I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # DT95MR. This is a Class III hitch with a 2" receiver and has a maximum gross trailer weight of 4,500 lbs and tongue weight of 675 lbs. You will want to check your owner's manual to find the towing capacity of your vehicle. You will be limited by whichever is lower, the hitch capacity or your vehicle's towing capacity. This hitch also has a concealed cross tube which will help maintain a factory look.

For wiring, I recommend the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # TE54FR. This wiring harness plugs directly into existing wiring and will provide you with a 4-way connection at the back of your vehicle to power your trailer's signal lights. If you also need a ball mount, I recommend the etrailer Ball Mount Kit # 989899. This kit comes with a 1-7/8" and 2" ball along with a ball mount bag to store everything in.

I have attached some review and installation videos for your reference.
