I needed a trailer hitch for my Mitsubishi Outlander. etrailer.com made the process easy to know if I was purchasing the right hitch for my vehicle based on customer reviews, especially the reviews including pictures. I checked around on other internet sites to make sure I wasn't paying too much. I was happy to find that etrailer.com was within $0.50 of these other websites. It took me almost twice as long to remove the rubber mounts on the exhaust then it did for my wife and I to install the hitch and the 6 bolts. The good part was that I know that I would have to remove these rubber exhaust mounts before I started, and was prepared. I have a small trailer for towing canoes and kayaks, and a 4 X 8 low wall trailer. I will also be using it for a bike hitch mount. I have three bike racks. 544964

Looks/Feel: The hitch is sturdy, easy to install and has a nice finish to it. Installation: I installed it with my dad's help - I held it in position while he turned the ratchet. The instructions were straight forward. Use: I've used it with the 20x59 Curt Cargo Carrier C18151. I've loaded firewood, cooler, luggage, camping equipment, etc. I appreciate the extra "space" it provides me for carrying around additional items. What I would change: The hitch bottoms out on some shopping center driveways - without a load. The bottom of the hitch is 10 & 7/16th inches from the ground - without a load. The tires/wheels and suspension are all stock. I feel it should not bottom out that easily. Of course, with a load, I have to be mindful of any dip. I wish there was a way to raise it a bit more off the ground. 639467

Would have fit great if the vehicle under carage frame would have had the same hole size as it was supposed to. Also I had to stretch the frame to reach the holes because it had been bent in a little in shipping. It was still a pretty straight forward install and looks great. 799460

My order arrived much earlier than they estimated. It’s a Curt hitch which will surely be top notch. I can’t say enough about etrailer, I don’t use them often but I have a ton of friends and customers that swear by them. They are all 100% right.

I am happy with the quick service that I received from etrailer.com. The person I spoke to ( Diane ) was really great to work with and very pleasant. My only complaint is the condition of the package when I received it. It was funny how the delivery person placed the extremely torn up side against the house, I wonder if that was the attempt to hid how bad it was torn up? Other than the torn up box, everything else was great. 661011

  • Trailer Hitch for 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # C13163 excludes the PHEV. However there is a 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV fit and it is # C13398. This will work well for bike racks and other accessories. If you will be towing I recommend the ZCI Circuit Protected Vehicle Wiring Harness w/ 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector and Installation Kit # 119250KIT that will not require any splicing into your vehicle wiring. The zero contact interface sensors will work well to...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendation for 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander
    For your 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander I recommend the Curt hitch part # C13163 as it has plenty of towing capacity, has the most durable powder coat finish and installs relatively easy. I attached a picture of the hitch installed as well as an install video for you to check out as well. For trailer wiring the easiest to install and most reliable option is the Tekonsha part # 118482. If you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes...

  • What is PHEV Model of 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander for Picking Out Hitch
    The PHEV models of the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander are hybrid models. Most likely if you are unsure if you have one or not you would not. If you were looking for a trailer hitch you would want the part # C13163 if you do not have a PHEV or if you did have one # C13398.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for Bike Rack On 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13163 is what I recommend for a 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander (Except Sport). This trailer hitch features a bolt-on install with no cutting or drilling required. It has the larger 2" receiver tube and the hitch is almost flush with the bumper so there really isn't a bike rack you can't use. If you don't already have one in mind, the Thule Hitching Post Pro part # TH934XTR is our best seller and for good reason.

  • Comparing Trailer Hitches For 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander
    The Draw-Tite and Curt hitches have the same style and same rated capacities. The only edge one way or the other is the integrated trailer wiring bracket on the Draw-Tite # 75888 or the fact the Curt # C13163 is made in the USA. If you will be using a 4-way trailer hitch connection, then I recommend going with the Curt hitch as you won't need that mount. Both come with bolts for installation. You may want the Nylon Tube Brush - 1/2" # 814092 and # L11363 to clean your factory frame...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander
    For your 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander I highly recommend the Curt Class III Round Tube Receiver Hitch # C13163. This custom hitch is going to line right up to existing holes in the Outlander's frame rails for a simple bolt-on (no-drill) installation and the black powder coat that Curt uses on their hitches is superior to those from other manufacturers so it's going to look brand new and resist any rust/corrosion for much longer. The hitch itself will provide you with a 2" receiver and...

  • Should the Curt Hitch C13163 for a 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander Stick Out Past Rear Bumper
    Sounds like you installed the Curt Hitch part # C13163 correctly on your 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander. If you check out the picture I attached that I got from Curt you will see that this hitch is supposed to stick out a little bit when installed.

  • Hitch and Wiring Recommendation for 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander
    Both of our hitches are shipped in the same packaging so this means that the Curt Hitch does weigh more than the Draw-Tite. All will also work with your spare tire. The differences in the hitches for your 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander is that the Curt offers a higher GTW (Gross Towing Weight) when used with a weight distribution and in turn weights slightly more than the Draw-Tite # 75888 Hitch. If you are planning on transporting a trailer this will be important to you, if not the Draw-Tite...

  • Troubleshooting Curt Hitch Not Fitting 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander
    If you are having a hard time lining up the mounting tabs of the Curt Trailer Hitch # C13163 with the frame of your 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander then most likely the hitch was indeed bent a bit during transport/shipping and it just needs to be corrected. This actually isn't too uncommon because trailer hitches are made from a mild steel so that it can flex with travel when it's mounted to your vehicle. There are a few good methods for flexing the hitch back into position including the...

So instead your best option is a trunk mounted bike rack like the Yakima Fullback 2 bike rack part # Y02634. I really like this trunk rack because it has large mounting pads to spread out the weight of the bikes and rack on the rear of the vehicle and because it comes with locks as well.

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver Fit for 2018 Mitsubishi Highlander NON-PHEV Model
    We have trailer hitch receivers that fit non-PHEV models of 2018 Mitsubishi Highlander, but the hitch you mentioned will not fit. Instead the two hitches that fit are: - Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75888 - Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13163 These two hitches are the same in regards to weight capacities, clearances, and installs so I recommend going with the one that is the least expensive.

This is also a Class III hitch like the C13079 and will offer you the same no-drill installation.
