Curb Weight vs. GVWR: What’s the Difference?

The 2021 RAM 1500 weight may be listed as 4,778 pounds to 6,396 pounds, but it’s important for El Cajon contractors to note that this range is the curb weight. That means it’s the weight of the RAM 1500 without any cargo or passengers loaded into it or towed behind it. If you want to know the RAM 1500 weight with all of these “extras” factored in, you’re actually looking for the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating, or GVWR. The GVWR is the safest maximum weight the RAM 1500 can handle, including passengers, cargo, curb weight, and tongue weight when towing. 

Note: Despite common misconceptions, the tongue weight does not equal the towing capacity of the RAM 1500. Rather, it’s the amount of trailer weight placed on the actual hitch.
