I have a 2020 hybrid sport. I would like to get a hitch for a bike rack as well as small trailers. My concern is that I will lose too much ground clearance for certain dirt roads. Many trailheads in Colorado require no less then what the Escape can give. Does anyone with a hitch know if it is lower then other parts of the vehicle bottom? Is it possible to cut out an opening in the middle of the bumper and have the hitch stick out there rather then below the bumper?
