Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2021 Subaru Ascent


Is there a hitch fit available for the 2021 Subaru Ascent? Last time I checked, there wasn't.


Expert Reply:

There indeed are hitches available for a 2021 Subaru Ascent. The most popular choice among Ascent owners is the Curt # C25VR. The hitch installs behind the bumper cover, and actually takes the place of the factory impact structure, so the receiver will actually utilize the cutout in the bumper cover, which can be replaced when the hitch isn't in use. This is the perfect option for folks that want a hitch, but aren't too enthused about the way a hitch looks.

I'll provide a photo showing what the hitch looks like once it's installed.

If you'll be towing with the hitch, you'll also need a trailer wiring harness like # 118790, a ball mount like # C45100, a hitch pin like # PC3 and # 19260 for a 1-7/8 and # 63845 for a 2 inch trailer ball.

I've linked to install videos for the trailer hitch and the wiring harness.
