What’s the Difference Between Curb Weight and GVWR?

When learning about the RAM 1500 weight, you might be wondering what the difference is between GVWR and curb weight. Often, the GVWR is the maximum weight that the vehicle can carry and travel safely. The curb weight is the weight of the truck without passengers, upgrades, or other items. 

Note: It’s also important to know that the tongue weight is not the same as towing capacity, as it’s the amount of weight the trailer places on the hitch.
