What’s the Difference Between Curb Weight and GVWR?

For those who are unfamiliar, you can think of GVWR as the max amount you will want your truck to weigh when fully loaded. The RAM 1500 curb weight does not account for passenger, equipment, or towing weight. The gross vehicle weight rating, on the other hand, is the max amount the vehicle can handle including the vehicle itself, passengers, cargo, and tongue weight while towing.

Pro Tip: Tongue weight is the amount of weight the trailer places on the hitch itself, which is not the same as the towing capacity.
