The vehicle weight of a vehicle is used for a variety of reasons. For towing applications, the gross weight of a vehicle, also knows as GVW is used to determine the strength of a towing application. For salvage purposes, the curb weight of the vehicle can be used to determine the value of the vehicle from local salvage yards. For example, if the weight of a car is 2 tons, and a scrap yard is paying $200 per ton, then the value of the car is $400 at the salvage yard. So, what is GVWR? GVWR is the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating for the vehicle. This value is set by the manufacturer and states the maximum weight that the vehicle can be. Truck weight will vary significantly from car weight and should be verified with a trusted curb weight reference table like the ones included in this site. Choose your vehicle Make below.
