The weight of a truck tells you something about your vehicle, as it usually is a factor in towing capacity and payload. So, how much does the 2020 RAM 1500 weigh? The Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) on this truck ranges from 6,800 lbs to 7,100 lbs. Oviedo Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram FIAT covers what the RAM 1500 weight means and other important specs on this storied truck below.

Types of Weight Measurements in Trucks

How much does the RAM 1500 weigh when you’re looking at curb weight? When you’re examining vehicle specs for your next Giddings truck, you’ll run into a few different words to describe weight. Three very important terms to know are: 

  • Curb Weight: The curb weight of a vehicle describes how much a vehicle weighs without any passengers or cargo inside. It’s the “pure” RAM 1500 weight. 
  • GVWR: The Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GWVR) factors in everything from the weight of passengers to your cargo to your trailer tongue (see below), measuring the maximum weight that the RAM 1500 can take. 
  • Tongue Weight: There’s towing capacity, and then there’s tongue weight. Tongue weight isn’t a measure of the weight of your trailer, but the amount that trailer places on the trailer hitch. As noted above, tongue weight is a factor in GVWR.
