RAM 1500 Weight Ratings

Are you wondering how much the RAM 1500 weighs when empty? This weight is known as the curb weight. As previously stated, this can be as little as 4,775 pounds or as much as 6,439 pounds for the 2022 RAM 1500.

If you’re wondering how much the RAM 1500 can carry when fully loaded, the GVWR or Gross Vehicle Weight Rating offers the information you need. The GVWR is the curb weight plus the amount of cargo and passenger weight a vehicle can handle.

Another weight rating you might be curious about if you need to tackle tough tasks in Pekin is the Gross Combined Weight Rating or GCWR. This is the maximum safe weight of a loaded vehicle plus the weight of a fully loaded trailer.

Of course, if you want to take over the Washington job site in your new truck, you’ll need to know about towing capacity and tongue weight. The towing capacity is the maximum amount of weight a vehicle can safely tow, while the tongue weight represents the maximum amount of weight the trailer hitch itself can handle.
