I have used this trailer on our Pacifica Hybrid for three road trips around the midwest, the product has only been used for a bike rack as the Pacifica Hybrid is not rated for towing. The hitch has performed well with the vehicle. It did not sway or create any odd sounds. The one disadvantage is the hands-free lift gate sensors are blocked by some of the hitch and that function of the vehicle is impaired by the hitch. If that is not an issue for you this hitch is a great fit for those who want a fuel efficient van and the ability to haul some bikes on a rack. 683604

I installed this on a 2018 Pacifica Hybrid. The hitch installation went well. Most everything lined up correctly but there were a few places that did not go on as easily because I installed it on a Hybrid Pacifica. The kit did not come with a good solution for the emissions canister on the drivers side. They could have drilled the small hole on the drivers side slightly larger to accommodate the ground wire that needed to be removed. I did not like the idea of moving it because that was the factory grounding spot. Other than those two areas the installation went well. I would recommend it to anyone that needed a hitch. The hitch is well constructed and the installation instructions are accurate. 652977

While the receiver generally fit and looks good, it did have a problem with the 2019 Pacifica Touring L. On the drivers side, there was a hole provided to fit over an unused grounding bolt that didn’t align. If I had access to a heavy duty drill press, it would have easy to redrilled a hole in the proper location. I did not so I was left with needing to grind and chisel away the bolt. Also, it was very difficult to reinstall the rearmost exhaust hanger due to the close proximity of the receiver support and the configuration of the hanger. 595870

My only complaint about the hitch itself is that there is a small hole on the drivers side to accommodate a screw with a nut on the bottom of the car and the hole in the hitch is too small for the nut. I have done this job on a Dodge Caravan a couple of times before and found the Pacifica to be much more involved. First the bolts had to be installed into the frame of the car, then all the covers on the bottom of the car that needed to be removed, modified and reinstalled. It was a long and difficult process to do alone and without a lift. A floor jack is a must to lift the hitch and hold it in place while you put the nuts on and to take the drivers rear wheel off. There are 3 screws in the wheel well that hold the cover onto the rear bottom of the car. 514793

Ultimately, the hitch went on (1 star for that) and looks good (one star for that) for a total of three stars. The installation though was not as advertised. “Grounding stud” hole too small. Yep, had that. Had to “nudge” the stud a little with a hammer to get the hitch in position. This ultimately constrained the position of it so that, no matter how much I ground on the frame (for reasons left completely unexplained in the instructions but other reviews suggest it’s to help with carbon canister clearance) the hitch wasn’t going to move anyway! Which brings me to the carbon canister clearance. Had to modify that (also not in the instructions) so that it cleared the carriage bolts and nuts. This wasn’t hard since the canister mounting brackets are plastic but completely unexpected and appears to have been addressed by Draw-Tite with a $100 auxiliary bracket. One other issue is that, on tightening, the carriage bolt spacers rotate into the carbon canister nutplate and cause it to misalign with the (large) hole in the frame for it. To get around this, I placed the canister mounting bolt, torqued the carriage bolt nuts, then removed the bolt, ground the frame hole, and installed a new bolt as the 6mm 10.9 bolt from the kit had no threads left. Another one - the underbody panel trimming dimensions are not even close! See the photo. They’re off by nearly two inches from side to side and three inches along the length of the vehicle which, at the end of the day, doesn’t impact function but makes for a very frustrating and ultimately, ugly end result. How this is off by this much, I can’t begin to understand. Photos are included and I’m hopeful this can help someone get it right(er than I did). CURT! Please repeat this installation, revise the instructions and pay more attention to the Hybrid version. etrailer should do the same for the Hybrid with a video. I shouldn’t have to scour the reviews (reviewers, thank you for helping to bail me out and, yes, I’m wishing I would have read them ahead of time because I wouldn’t have bought this). I’ve done three other hitches including one Curt and two Draw Tites (and many other car projects) with zero issues. This one though took 5 hours and one unexpected trip to the hardware store for a new 6mm carbon canister screw. Not fun at all. Recommend against this hitch :( 690787

Thank you for your review. Unfortunately we have not yet had the opportunity to install this hitch on a Pacifica Hybrid. We will keep your review in mind if we have the chance to perform this installation.

A few places on the hitch where the paint had been scraped off when it arrived that I'll have to paint over before I install it--I live in Iowa where the road salt causes major corrosion. Other than that, product arrived quickly. It seems to be heavy-duty and high quality. Directions are clear, so I'm not too worried about install, provided that it fits right, which I'm optimistic about. 636307

I installed this on a 2018 Pacifica Hybrid. Mostly smooth sailing, except for 1 hiccup. I didn’t read the paper directions first, just watched the install video. Didn’t realize that there is a slightly different installation process for the hybrid, which the manufacturer recommends grinding the holes in the frame slightly larger to allow it to sit further back and avoid contact with the carbon canister on the driver side. Since I already had the hitch in place once I realized this issue, I searched some Pacifica owner forums and found an alternate solution, which involved slightly modifying the bracket which mounts the carbon canister to allow space for the hitch bolts. Wasn’t very hard, just a little extra time/work to figure it out. It would be nice for e-trailer to add a hybrid-specific install video. All told, install took about 3 hours for 2 fairly handy dudes, including searching forums and such. Final installation looks pretty clean. 597149

Got this for a 2018 Pacifica Hybrid. Installation instructions were great, but it was a tough, two man job. Unfortunately the receiver is does not stick out far enough from the bumper. As the hybrids are not rated for towing the primary use for the hitch is going to be bike racks, and with our 4 bike 1-UP in the stow position the rack winds up being too close to the car to open the hatch...not an issue on any of our other cars (prius v, forester). Receiver really needs to come out another 3" to edge of bumper. We can still make it work, just not perfect. 526904

Ask the Experts about this Curt Trailer Hitch

  • Best Hitch For 2018 Chrysler Pacifica and 4-Bike Platform Rack
    Yes Karine, we are still here to help! For the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13383 because it is a 2" hitch that fits the Hybrid model and has a more durable powder coat finish compared to some of the other options. Using a 2" hitch opens up more bike rack and accessory options compared to a 1-1/4" hitch. I also find the photos in the Curt installation instructions to be easier to follow. For the 4 bike rack the best option is a platform...

    Both the Draw-Tite Class III Trailer Hitch # 76046 and the Curt Class III # C13383, which are confirmed to fit your 2018 Chrysler Pacifica, will require that the heat shield is trimmed/modified for proper installation. In both cases the heat shield does get reattached after the hitch is in place. Even when trimming the heat shield, your vehicle will still be protected because the installed hitch will essentially be taking the place of the trimmed off portions. Between the two hitches,...

    I took a look in the owner's manual for your 2019 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid and saw where it said that towing a trailer is not permitted. However, it does not say that you cannot install a trailer hitch for a cargo carrier so you should not worry about voiding your warranty.
