Review of the Curt 17x46 Hitch Cargo Carrier on a 2015 Buick Enclave


Today, on our 2015 Buick Enclave, we'll be doing a test fit of the Curt Cargo Carriers, 17x46 inch, 500 pound capacity, steel constructed, cargo carrier for 1-1/4 inch and 2 inch hitches. We have a 2 inch hitch here today, so let's go ahead and put on our carrier. It's going to be part number C18145. Insert that into your 2-inch receiver, just make sure your plastic adapter gets in there the right way, there you go. Then we'll go and line up our pin holes. Once you got your pin holes lined up go ahead and insert your anti-rattle bolt that's included and thread that in as far as you can by hand.

Once you've gotten it threaded in as far as you can, go ahead and take a 3/4-inch socket, and tighten it up the rest of the way. As you can see there, it helped to eliminate a lot of the rattle, sway or wobble that you may have had. Go ahead and put your clip in and we'll go ahead and get some measurements. The first measurement that we are going to get is going to be our closest distance, which is going to be from the bumper to the front of the rack, about 1 1/2. Overall distance that we've added to the vehicle about 20-3/4 inches. Ground clearance from the bottom of the shank about 16-1/4 inches.

Next, we'll go ahead and give your exhaust standoff, in case if you're carrying anything that's going to be heat sensitive. This vehicle does come with dual exhaust, so just bear that in mind for your applications. We're looking at about 9-1/2 inches. From there, we'll go ahead and open up our hatch, that way we can give you your break over point. Go ahead and lower your hatch slowly and your break over point is going to be about 13 inches.

Now that we've seen how the Curt Cargo Carrier 17x46, part number C18145, fits on our 2015 Buick Enclave, let's see how it does on our test course. .
