Trailer Hitch Fit for 2020 Ford Explorer and Fascia Trimming Needed to Install


Looking for a trailer hitch for 2020 Ford Explorer. Want a clean look so I know there's going to be a big of fascia trimming needed. Can you tell me how much?


Expert Reply:

There is a trailer hitch that fits a 2020 Ford Explorer, the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76320, which is a Class III hitch with a 2" receiver, 6,000 lb towing capacity and 900 lb tongue weight capacity.

As you can see from the cut outs I added from the linked installation manual, this hitch will rest neatly underneath your Explorer's bumper to retain its clean appearance, but some slight fascia trimming is required. Just a 3-1/4" x 5" section needs to be trimmed in order for the receiver to be as high as possible which gives it the best ground clearance and appearance (as a note, the hitch in the photo is gray but this is just for the install instructions; the hitch does have a black powder coat finish).

For wiring which will give you a 4-way connector and allow you to power your trailer's lights you need Wiring Harness # 118599. I also recommend checking out the etrailer Ball Mount Kit # 989900. It comes with a 1-7/8" hitch ball and 2" hitch ball to pair with your trailer's coupler.
