What’s the Difference Between Curb Weight and GVWR?

These are the two weights most Calera drivers need to know when they buy a truck. The GVWR (gross vehicle weight rating) is the maximum amount of combined weight a truck can handle between its own weight and its payload, passengers, and tongue weight if you’re towing. The curb weight is how much the truck weighs when it’s empty and isn’t equipped with additional equipment.

2021 RAM 1500 Curb Weight

The strength of the 2021 RAM 1500 comes from a mix of steel and aluminum materials, which makes for a sturdy vehicle that can still generate excellent fuel economy. As we mentioned, the RAM 1500 weight depends on which trim level you choose. Here’s how much a RAM 1500 weighs by trim:
