Review of the Reese Hitch Bike Racks on a 2020 Chrysler Pacifica


Adam: Hi everybody. Adam with etrailer.com. Today we're going to be taking a look at the Reese 3 hanging style bike rack on our 2020 Chrysler Pacifica. So this is the three bike rack version, but we also do have a two and a four bike rack version available on our website. So if you got a couple more friends than just two, may as well just grab the bigger one. But this one right here is only three.

And they're all going to have two tie down points per bike. You're going to have two here up top, it's going to be a hook and loop type strap. It's really easy to get off, just like that. And you don't really have to worry about it scratching anything, it's not that abrasive. Then you can just go ahead and take that bike off the rack.

One thing this bike rack doesn't have as an anti-sway cradle so we are going to have a little bit of play, just side to side whenever we're driving down the road.But we don't have to worry about our bike getting damaged with the strap. And this rubber insert here is just going to protect that bike frame, just so it doesn't get scratched or anything like that. Also we have a little ridge here which will leave room for your bike cables, just so they're not smashing up against your frame. Super easy to put these back when you're not using them. Does have a nice powder coated finish so it just looks pretty nice, and it's going to resist against rust and corrosion over time.

One of the things that this one does give you is the tilting feature which allows you to access back to your hatch. Just pull this pin here, don't have to worry about losing it because it is attached, which is a plus. Once you pull that you can just lean it back, and we checked no contact with our back hatch. So after you remove your bikes from the rack, you can go ahead and grab whatever you need out of the back. You don't have to worry about taking the rack out of your hitch.If you don't like the idea of having to take your bikes off the rack to tilt back and you still want a hanging style bike rack, Saris Glide EX has a bunch of different bike racks, there's a three, two, four, and a five.

So if that's something that you like, definitely go check out the video we made on that. But whenever we're done with that feature, you can just go ahead and replace that pin, and done deal. So this is going to be the only drivable position with this bike rack. So let's go ahead and see how much length you're going to add to the back of our Pacifica. In this instance, it is going to be about 33 inches. And again, that is fixed so we won't be able to cut that down at all without just removing it out of the hitch.So let's look down at our shank here. We do have a rise in the shank, so it's going to be a little bit higher than your hitch receiver. And at the farthest point out it's going to be about 13 inches, which is plenty. It doesn't really stick out too far. Center of the hitch pin hole to the end is about 19 inches. So I don't really think we'll have any issues bottoming out. Another neat feature with the shank is the fact that it's going to fit both the inch and a quarter inch hitch, and also there's a sleeve in here making it compatible with our two inch hitch receiver. It's always nice buying a product knowing that you can put it in two different sizes. If you have two size hitches on two different vehicles. Also it comes with anti-rattle bolt and all that does is just keep that shank securely inside the hitching receiver so you don't really have to worry about listening to that rattle whenever you're going down the road.So whether you go with the two, three, or four bike rack, I do think this is going to be an economical choice just to get your bikes to and from your destination pretty easily. Other than that, that's pretty much it for our look at the Reese 3 on our 2020 Chrysler Pacifica. Here on our test course, we'll start by going through the slalom. This is going to show us the side to side action. This simulates turning corners or evasively maneuvering. Once we get to the alternating speed bumps, we'll see the twisting action. This will simulate hitting a curb, or pothole, 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, parking garage, or driveway.
