Hello all!

I’m picking up my BL + BL on Monday and can’t wait to get it. I do have a questions around the Class II receiver. I’ve generally thought class 2 receivers to be 1.25 inches, but I’ve seen a couple people in this forum mention it’s actually a 2 inch receiver on the Sport. Can anyone confirm the size?

Thanks!

I don’t have mine yet but I checked one out at the dealer and it’s definitely a 2”. I had the same concern.

I had the same concern, but research showed a 2” class II is just weight-restricted.

Speaking of these hitches, does anyone know why they are on preorder instead of actually being out for release? I called my local dealer and they said that they are waiting for them with no confirmation of what the hold up is.

I’m not sure. I opted for the Class II Trailer Tow package but haven’t heard about any delays.

Bronco Sport is experiencing delays because of tow package. And has been since at least early February when shortage of moonroof, tow package, and gray roof paint for BL caused a month long production delay for some orders with those options. Most recent reference below:

  • 21MY Bronco Sport OTD Orders – Please note that orders without Class II Trailer Tow Package (53B) will schedule more quickly; therefore please consider removing this option from your orders.

Good info., but sounds crazy -- it's a hunk of steel, a few bolts, and a separate mold for the rear bumper cover -- plus the 4-pin wiring and socket. Are they short "anti-sway system chips?" And gray roof paint? Almost ZERO examples in the wild, they're all black or body-color. But who can't just mix up some more gray paint? Weird...

You might have just solved it with the lack of “anti-sway chips”. Not sure if it’s separate but I wouldn’t be surprised.
