We here at Landers Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM have compiled the weights of the different trims, as well as made a list comparing curb weight, GVWR, and more.

What’s the Difference Between Curb Weight and GVWR?

Gross Vehicle Weight Rating is the maximum weight you’ll want the vehicle and its contents to weigh (including passengers, cargo, and tongue weight if towing). Curb weight on the other hand does not include other passengers, towing weight, or additional equipment.

Note: Tongue weight is not the same as towing capacity. It’s simply the amount of weight the trailer places on the hitch itself.
