August 3rd, 2020 by

Red 2020 Ram 1500

The 2020 RAM 1500 has a curb weight ranging from 4,798 pounds to 5,374 pounds unloaded and a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) that ranges from 6,800 pounds to 7,1000 pounds. Follow along as Clear Lake Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram FIAT breaks down the differences between curb weight and GVWR so you can determine which 2020 RAM 1500 weight and which configuration works for you.
 

RAM 1500 Weight: Curb Weight vs. GVWR

Curb weight is how much a vehicle weighs without passengers or cargo; it’s the weight of the physical vehicle itself. GVWR is a vehicle’s maximum weight that includes its curb weight, passengers, cargo, and tongue weight if the truck is towing anything. It’s important to keep in mind that tongue weight is not a vehicle’s towing capacity. Rather, the tongue weight is the amount of weight a trailer places on the hitch of your vehicle. The GVWR does not interfere with the max RAM 1500 towing capacity.
