Highest Ground Clearance Hitch for 2022 Subaru Outback


I need a hitch for my 2021 Subaru Outback. Which offers the most ground clearance?


Expert Reply:

When the removable receiver of the Stealth Hitch # 391SUOB20 (for hitch mounted accessories) or # 391SUOB20T (for hitch mounted accessories OR towing) is removed, no portion of the hitch would extend below the underside of the rear bumper, so either option would offer the most ground clearance. With the receiver installed, the underside of the receiver would sit about 2-1/2 inches below the bumper fascia.

Of the remaining hitches, the EcoHitch # EH34FR would have about about 13 inches of clearance under the lowest point of the hitch, and the Curt # C67JR and the etrailer # e25TR would have about 12-3/4 inches clearance under the lowest point of the hitch.

Since there's a pretty large price differential between the lowest and highest cost hitch, and the amount of ground clearance doesn't differ by much, I'd personally go with the Draw-Tite # e25TR because I really like how the matte black finish blends into the black trim on the bottom of the bumper.
