Review of the Curt 24x60 Hitch Cargo Carrier on a 2014 Acura MDX


Today on our 2014 Acura MDX, we're doing a test fit of the Curt folding 24 by 60 cargo carrier. The part number for that is C18153. This cargo carrier has a weight capacity of 500 pounds and is designed to work with 2-inch hitches. First thing we'll do is take a few measurements. Our ground clearance here is going to be about 15 inches. Overall to the vehicle, we're adding about 52 3/4 inches.

Our closest point is going to be about 17 inches. Now, on the Acura, we do have a single passenger side exhaust over here. It does come a little bit towards the ground but just to be safe, we'll take a measurement. We're about 28 inches away between the two so if you plan on carrying any heat sensitive materials, you may want to be precautious about that. Now we'll check our hatch clearance here. Now our hatch doesn't break over the carrier so you shouldn't have to worry about carrying any materials stacked very high on your cargo carrier.

Now this carrier does fold up. To do so, we're just going to pull out this pin and clip here at the middle. We'll lift up on the back of the carrier. We'll just replace our pin and clip down here at the bottom. With that in place, we'll take another set of measurements.

Got about 12 inches of ground clearance. We're adding only 16 inches to the vehicle now. Our closest point is going to be about 8 1/2 inches away. Now while we're down here, we do have a hitch pin and clip holding that in but it's not included when you purchase the carrier but you can find that on our website. It's part number PC3. That's going to complete our look at the Curt 24 by 60 folding cargo carrier, part number C18153 on our 2014 Acura MDX.

Let's see how it does on the test course. Here on our test course, we'll start by going through the slalom. This is going to show us side to side action which simulates turning corners or evasive maneuvers. Once we get to the alternating speed bumps, we'll see the twisting action. This will simulate hitting a curb or potholes or driving over uneven pavement. Once we get to the full speed bumps, we'll see the up and down action. This will be just like driving in and out of a parking lot, garage, or driveway.
