Review of the Curt 24x60 Hitch Cargo Carrier on a 2015 Buick Enclave


Today on our 2015 Buick Enclave, we're going to be doing a test fit of the Curt Cargo Carrier. This is going to be part number C18153. It's going to be 24 inches wide by 60 inches long. Have that nice expanded metal base for easy cleanability as well as a sturdy steel construction that's going to offer a 500-pound weight capacity. Another nice feature about it is it's going to have that nice folding 2-inch shank and it's going to fit into our 2-inch receivers just fine. With the attachment to our receiver from our shank, it's going to attach using a hitch pin and clip and it's not going to be included so if you'd like to obtain one, you can get it on our website, part number PC3. Let's go ahead and start off by getting a few measurements with it in the stowed position here.

Our closest distance would be our first one. That's going to be from the point here to the back side of the bumper, at about 4 1/8 inches. Overall distance with it in the stowed position from the back of the bumper to the back of the rack at about 13 1/4 inches and our ground clearance at about 16 3/8 inches. All right, now let's move down to the bottom here and we'll go ahead and put it down into the platform position so you can store all your cargo on it. Remove the clip and the pin here on the bottom side. Go ahead and bring it down and you replace the pin and clip once you've done so.

All right, now let's go ahead and open up that rear hatch. Let's see what kind of access we have. The only thing we're going to have to keep in mind with our hatch opening is if we plan on stacking any items high up on our cargo carrier that our hatch may make contact. Let's see what that measurement is going to be. This contact point is called our break over point.

It's going to be about 24 inches. Let's go ahead and close that up and just keep that in mind if you plan on stacking anything more than 2 feet high, you're going to run into contact with your hatch. Now, for exhaust on this vehicle, it does have dual exhaust exiting straight back on both sides. If you're going to be storing anything that's going to be heat sensitive or perishable, you're going to want to know that your stand off distance is going to be able 23 inches before any of that heat makes it to your cargo carrier. Let's go ahead and get our close distance, overall distance and ground clearance measurements one more time. With it in the platform position here, it's going to be about 14 3/4 inches from the back side of your bumper.

Overall distance would be about 40 inches and your ground clearance would be about 18 3/4 inches. Now that you've seen the Curt Cargo Carrier, part number C18153 on our 2015 Buick Enclave, let's go ahead and see how it does on our test course. Here, you see it out on our test course. First is the slalom which shows the side to side action to simulate turning corners or evasive maneuvers. Next are the alternating speed bumps which show you the twisting action such as hitting a pothole, road debris or going over a curb. Finally, we will finish with the solid speed bumps which show the up and down action to simulate a parking garage or coming out of a driveway.
