2013 Police Interceptor Sedan Hitch?

Post by cooldude.country » Sun Feb 19, 2017 10:37 am

New PI owner here. I have searched the forum for information on buying an appropriate Trailer Hitch for this PI and found nothing. My online search produced many hitches for the Taurus but not for the PI Sedan. Can anyone help? Thanks.

Welcome to the site, looks good! I imagine the Taurus tow hitch would fit but someone else should know better than I...

The two Curt hitches are noted as not fitting the PI but the Drawtite's are noted as fitting.

people shouldn't be able to put trailer hitches on cars. They are not designed for towing anything. Next thing he will be asking for a place to fix his transmission. Sorry guy just not a good idea or use of a Taurus. If you need to tow something rent a truck or buy one.

The PI has a trans cooler. It should be fine for towing a small trailer. I know the regular sedan taurus is rated at 1000lbs. No idea what the PI is rated at.

I pulled an older 17 foot bass boat when I had my SHO and had no issues. With all the extra cooling I see no reason why anyone would have a problem pulling a trailer on an AWD PI, especially the ecoboost. Just because Ford doesn't publish official tow rating for a vehicle doesn't mean it can't tow at all.

In the Owners manual for a 2014 PI, It shows towing for sedan is 1000lb and utility is 2500lb. I dug it up on google. go find it for yourself

...and many of us use our hitches for things other than towing--such as a bicycle rack... :)

Hey everyone, many thanks for your replies. jmr is correct. The PI's tow fine, with the extra trans cooler. I purchased the Drawtite. I do have one MAJOR issue tho. I want to replace the infotainment system with the Sony NAV/Stereo System but Metra has yet to produce a kit for the 2013 Taurus. Im pulling out my hair over this and will soon be bald. I also need a left (driver side) pilar cover with speaker. Thanks.
