What’s the Difference Between Curb Weight and GVWR?

When discussing pickup trucks, their towing capacity, payload, and weight, the topics of gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) and curb weight will surely come up. While the GVWR takes the maximum amount of weight you can safely have in the vehicle (vehicle weight, passengers, cargo, and tongue weight), curb weight does not include these factors. And tongue weight, to clarify, isn’t the same as towing capacity. Tongue weight is the downward force the tongue of the trailer places on the hitch.

A good way to break it down is by thinking of GVWR as the maximum weight you want the contents and the vehicle to weigh.

Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR)

Depending on which model configuration you choose of the 2019 RAM 1500, the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) can differ. Factors that determine this includes crew cab or quad cab models, as well as the bed length.
