2022 RAM 1500 Weight Ratings

There’s several different weight ratings that you’ll have to contend with when shopping for a truck in Villa Rica. If you’re looking for the weight of a vehicle without any passengers or cargo, you’re looking for the 2022 RAM 1500 curb weight.

The GVWR, or Gross Vehicle Weight Rating, is how much cargo your truck can carry when loaded up. This includes the curb weight plus the maximum allowable weight for passengers and cargo. Payload factors into the calculation of this weight.

If you’re towing, you’ll need to know about the maximum safe weight of the loaded vehicle when combined with a loaded tow trailer. This is the Gross Combined Vehicle Rating, or GCWR. Towing capacity is the maximum safe weight your vehicle can tow, but this is not to be confused with tongue weight, which is the maximum weight you can place on the trailer hitch by the trailer itself.
