Exploring the Difference Between Curb Weight and GVWR

Taking a look at the RAM 1500 weight measurements, the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) is seen as the maximum weight of the vehicle and the contents it’s carrying, whereas the RAM 1500 curb weight doesn’t include passengers, equipment, or the towing weight.
