Driving the family up to the campground? Hauling tools and equipment from the home improvement store? Pulling your boat to the nearby swimming hole? Whatever your destination and whatever trailer you're towing, Bring It® with a CURT trailer hitch!
CURT class 3 trailer hitches are designed, built and tested to accommodate a wide variety of towing applications. They are used on everything from full-size cars, vans and crossovers to light-duty pickup trucks and SUVs. Class 3 trailer hitches are perfect for towing fishing boat trailers, popup campers, ATV trailers, utility trailers and much more. They are also ideal for adding storage space to your vehicle with a hitch-mounted cargo carrier or bike rack (NOTE: Never exceed the lowest-rated towing component).
Each CURT class 3 hitch is engineered to fit on a specific vehicle. This provides the best possible fit and easiest installation. This particular custom class 3 hitch fits specific years of the Ford Escape and Lincoln Corsair (to verify vehicle compatibility, see the CURT application guide or use the Vehicle Lookup tool). It is designed to integrate with the vehicle's existing features and offer a reliable connection to your trailer.
This Ford / Lincoln hitch is stringently tested in accordance with SAE J684 to ensure a weight carrying capacity of 3,500 lbs. gross trailer weight and 525 lbs. tongue weight. It also features a 2" receiver tube opening to accept ball mount or other hitch accessory with a 2" x 2" shank.
From class 1 to class 5, all CURT custom-fit receiver hitches are made in the USA to ensure quality from design to finish (may include imported hardware). They are designed with hands-on engineering for a precise fit. They are welded using a combination of manual and robotic operations for speed and accuracy. Finally, they are finished with our unique co-curing process. Each hitch is dipped in a liquid A-coat for rust prevention, inside and out, and then co-cured in a durable black powder coat finish for maximum rust, chip and UV resistance.
Every CURT custom hitch design is thoroughly tested at our in-house testing facility in Detroit, MI. We adhere to the proposed SAE J684 testing protocols to make sure that the hitch you mount on your vehicle will be a dependable means to enjoy your lifestyle.
Whatever your passion -- whether it's hunting, fishing, camping, offroading or hard work -- you can expect reliability for the road ahead. All CURT custom hitches are covered by a limited lifetime warranty to give you confidence in each adventure, season after season.
I installed the Curt hitch #13454 on my 2021 Lincoln Corsair. Used a floor jack to hold the hitch in place while threading the flange nuts onto the carriage bolts. Had a problem on the driver side, forward oblong bolt hole on hitch could have been 3/8" longer
extended forward, so that the bolt wouldn't be on an angle. That prevented me to thread the nut on the bolt. That won't be a problem, as I don't plan on towing anything other than an empty tow dolly in the RV park, for storage. Can't find a wiring harness (Hopkins or similar 7 blade) for the corsair, to plug in the dolly, Other that that, hitch is hardly noticeable, and does look good.
Being a novice mechanic, and not having all the tools required, I attempted to install the Curt hitch #13454 on my 2021 Lincoln Corsair. Upon following the two video instructions, the driver side forward oblong holes on the hitch, next to the exhaust mounting block, could be longer by 1/4" forward. I couldn't screw on the flange nut as the bolt was on an angle. I'm really not concerned as I only use the hitch to maneuver a 300 or 400lbs tow dolly at a camping site. Other than that, installation was great.
