What’s the Difference Between Curb Weight and GVWR?

The curb weight of a vehicle doesn’t include passengers, additional equipment, or towing weight. The gross vehicle weight rating is the maximum amount of weight you can safely have in the vehicle, including the vehicle weight, passengers, cargo, and tongue weight if you’re towing. Tongue weight isn’t the same as towing capacity, however. It’s simply the amount of weight the trailer places on the hitch itself. Basically, you can think of GVWR as the max amount of weight you’ll want the vehicle and its contents to weigh.

When it comes to Ram 1500 towing, the upgraded V8 engine allows this pickup to handle up to 12,750 pounds of extra work gear, lumber, or anything else you need to tow through town.
