What Hitch Will Fit My 2021 Toyota Rav4 Prime?

Question:

Hello, I am looking for a trailer hitch for my new car. It is 2021 Toyota Rav4 Prime. There is a hitch for Toyota Rav4 2021. But based on my inspection of my vehicle, it will not work for Rav4 Prime. The holes are set differently. Do you know when will you have available product? Thank you

After reaching out to Curt on your behalf, I've been told that both the Curt # C66KR and the # C13416 are expected to fit all sub-models. I've included an installation video on a 2020 Toyota Rav4 that should help you with the install.

I don't think there's a hitch to fit the 2021 Toyota Rav4 Prime XSE. U-HAUL couldn't do it.

Did they try either of the hitches that Adam mentioned above? If they did try those do you know what the reasoning was for those hitches not fitting?

I am looking for trustable hitch for toyota Rav4 Prime 2021 as well with wiring kits. The new prime version is 302 HP and more powerfull, so can tow up to 2500 pounds

@Mehdi I'd go with the Curt Hitch # C13416 and wiring # C56434 .

How certain are you recommending these two on a new model? The Prime has larger batteries located in the undercarriage. Have you seen the schematics and installation instructions for a ‘21 Prime?

@Brad Very certain. We have recommended this hitch (and the Draw-Tite alternative # 76201 that is essentially the same thing) and haven't received any negative feedback as of yet.

@Brad Worked fine in my rav4 prime XSE with all the package options. Had to disable to foot sensor for the trunk though.

@Michael - did you have to swap out the bumper too?

@David e-trailer needs to do an install video on the 2021 Prime. I helped a friend install one on his prime and it’s a major pain! It’s not just a quick four bolt bolt on. It’s no wonder U-Haul won’t install!

@Jim websites like carparts,, advanced auto parts, etc. say that Curt #13416 does not fit 2021 RAV4 Prime SE. I am hesitant to buy it. Does it actually fit?

@AlexB We actually have a review on the Curt hitch product page (left by John on 5-1-21) where he was able to fit it on his 2021 Prime. So while we don't have a video of this fitting, we do have feedback showing that it will fit! He also gives some tips on what he did for the install that you can check out.

@JonG yes sounds good. A video would be extremely helpful for people who have no clue how to perform the install. I’m a retired mechanic and I did the install with a retired race car driver . Yes, it was doable but not an easy task for the average DIY tho

@Jim Hi, I bought some product from your website. Before buying you confirmed these products match with my car (Toyota Rav4 Prime). Today I opened the box to install on my car, I could install all however, I could not install roof rop on my car. The product number is MPG215. How can I install it?

You should just be able to clamp the legs around the raised rails on your RAV4. I'm attaching a link to an installation video of us putting this rack on a 2018 RAV4 that you can follow.
