RAM 1500 Weight Ratings

  • Curb weight is the weight of a vehicle as it would sit next to the curb, ready to drive. This includes the weight of the vehicle and any fluids required for it to start up and drive away, including fuel and oil. This figure is best when comparing different vehicles for your Waco and Aransas Pass area drives.
  • GVWR or Gross Vehicle Weight Rating is the curb weight and the maximum amount of cargo weight that can be put on top of that, while the vehicle can still safely drive.
  • Gross Combined Weight Rating, or GCWR, is the maximum safe weight of the loaded vehicle combined with a loaded tow trailer. This is a critical consideration when towing between Jackson and Oklahoma City.
  • Towing capacity is the maximum amount of weight the vehicle can tow safely.
  • Tongue weight is the weight placed on the trailer hitch, by the trailer itself.
