    Rack for 2010 Ford Taurus?

    I just received my new company car and am going from a Ford Freestyle (which had tons of cargo room and enough for my bike) to a 2010 Ford Taurus, which obviously doesn't

    I am thinking that installing a hitch and buying a hitch rack would be the best bet. I am totally new to this type of rack and was wondering what tips anyone had for the best bang for the buck to get this done. Most use will be within about 100 miles and very little over that.

    A local place can install the hitch for only $30 (putting me just over $200 for that part) and it's definitely worth $30 to me for that, but if I could find one for around $100 I'd just do it myself.

    As the rack goes....it just needs to hold 3-4 bikes and I'd like it to either include or have available a locking mechanism for the rack to the car and the bikes to the rack.

    I appreciate any tips you have folks!

    Thanks Scott! I don't see any difference b/w the 914 and the 914xt, is there anything of note I am missing?

    the 914xt has anti sway cradles built in, while the 914 does not include them, but they can be purchased separately...
