What’s the Difference Between Curb Weight and GVWR?

The curb weight of a vehicle doesn’t include passengers, additional equipment and accessories, or towing weight. The gross vehicle weight rating is the maximum amount of weight you can safely have in the vehicle, including the vehicle weight, passengers, cargo, and (if you are towing) tongue weight. Tongue weight the amount of weight the trailer places on the tow hitch, and all of these things factor into the total 2019 RAM 1500 weight.
