Best Trailer Hitch for 2019 Subaru Outback Limited  


I have a 2019 Subaru Outback Limited and am looking for a really good trailer hitch that fits this car. I will be using it for a bike rack or cargo carrier mostly so if there is something with good bumper clearnace Id like that a lot.


Expert Reply:

The best trailer hitch for your 2019 Subaru Outback Limited is the Curt # C13206 because it has the best bumper clearance among hitches that fit your car; this hitch is a fit for both the 2.5i Limited and 3.6R Limited.

This Class III, 2" trailer hitch has a black powder coat finish which helps protect it from corrosion and also has a 4,000 lb towing capacity and a 600 lb tongue weight capacity, allowing you to carry even the heaviest bikes and bike racks. The Curt # C13206 is made in the USA and comes with a lifetime warranty.

I have added a link to a video of this hitch being installed on a Subaru Outback for you to check out and the accompanying photo shows how it will look when installed.

If you need a bike rack I strongly recommend checking out the Kuat Sherpa 2.0 because of its superb combination of style and functionality. This rack comes in your choice of colors: Black # SH22B, Pearl # SH22P, or Gray # SH22G.

This is a wheel-mount rack which uses ratcheting hooks to grasp your bikes by the front wheels, eliminating any frame contact with your bikes; it also has rear-wheel cradles with ratcheting straps to secure your bike's rear wheels.

The Sherpa 2.0 can be tilted down - even with the bikes loaded - with the press of a handy foot lever, and can also fold up for when the bikes are not being carried. It does not require any tools to install into your hitch as you'll only need to turn a knob to tighten the rack in the hitch; this also works as an anti-rattle device so you can get a quiet ride.

Additionally, the Sherpa 2.0 comes with a hitch lock to secure the rack to your Outback and a cable lock to secure your bikes to the rack, helping protect your investments. This is a lightweight, 32 lb rack which has a weight capacity of 40 lbs per bike and fits bikes with tire widths up to 3", wheelbases up to 47" and wheels that are 20" to 29". I have added links to video reivews of this rack for you to take a look at as well.
