The CURT class 3 trailer hitch is the most common type of trailer hitch installed on full-size pickup trucks and SUVs. It is also found on full-size cars, crossover SUVs, minivans and mid-size trucks. That is because the class 3 packs the punch of a heavyweight hitch while still staying light on its feet. This CURT class 3 hitch offers a gross trailer weight capacity of 4,000 lbs. and a comparable tongue weight capacity of 400 lbs. It is designed to be a custom-fit trailer hitch for certain years of the Ford Flex with dual exhaust or Lincoln MKT with EcoBoost (to verify your vehicle compatibility, see the CURT application guide at curtmfg.com). It features a round tube frame and comes with all necessary hardware for a complete installation.
The 2" x 2" receiver tube opening of this class 3 hitch is able to accept a hitch-mounted accessory, such as a bike rack or cargo carrier, or a ball mount to tow most standard size trailers, including utility trailers, single-horse livestock trailers, boat trailers and large campers. One special feature about the class 3 that is not found in classes 1 or 2 is its compatibility with a weight distribution hitch. Though the weight capacity does not increase, this class 3 can be used in combination with a WD hitch to better stabilize the load (NOTE: Never exceed the lowest weight capacity of any towing component).
CURT class 3 trailer hitches are engineered to be strong and capable, having a quality steel frame and a solid finish. They are put through strenuous testing before being deemed ready for market and come with two coatings -- a liquid Bonderite coating and a powder coat in high-gloss black -- that cure together to form a strong resistance against rust, scratching, UV damage and other wear. Our hitches are our pride, and as such, we back them up with a limited lifetime warranty and a one-year finish warranty.

Towing a 5x8 with my 2013 Lincoln MKT
We put this hitch on. My husband and dad had it put on within an hour. My car is pulling a Uhaul 5x8 like a boss! It's probably towing about 1500lbs. Load the trailer correctly and you won't have swaying. Thank you Curt for the custom hitch and easy install
Fits Flex 2014 w/ dual exhaust
Although the 2013 Flex has a single muffler with twin tips on the left side and the 2014 has mufflers on the left and right side, this hitch will fit the 2014 Flex. You need to disconnect 3 muffler hangars to get clearance: the left and right by each muffler and one about 5 feet up on the central exhaust pipe. We supported the exhaust with jack stands so not to stress them. With the exhaust down we were able to get the hitch in place and mount it relatively easy. The hitch looks good and works well with my Thule hitch mounted bike rack. One improvement would be to have a hole for a lock pin. This is my second Curt hitch and I would buy another in the future.
