What’s the Difference Between Curb Weight and GVWR?

A vehicle’s curb weight is the weight of the vehicle without taking into account factors, such as passengers, cargo, and other contents, including the tongue weight of any items towed. 

Gross Vehicle Weight Rating, or GVWR for short, is the maximum amount of weight your vehicle can accommodate in the cargo hold/bed and interior and on a trailer, plus its own weight, or curb weight. In other words, GVWR is the maximum total allowable weight of the vehicle and anything that weighs it down.

Note: Tongue weight is not the same as towing capacity. It’s the amount of weight the trailer places on the hitch itself.
