What’s the Difference Between Curb Weight and GVWR?

A vehicle’s curb weight is its total weight before the addition of equipment, passengers, or towing weight, whereas the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating is the maximum weight your vehicle can have that includes the vehicle’s standard weight, the passengers, cargo, and tongue weight when towing. However, tongue weight also isn’t the same as the towing capacity but is the amount of weight a trailer leaves on the hitch itself. The GVWR is better remembered as simply being the max weight you can have the vehicle and its contents weigh.
