  • 2019 RAM 1500 Big Horn – Between 6,800 lbs and 6,900 lbs

What’s the Difference Between Curb Weight and GVWR?

When a vehicle’s curb weight is calculated, passengers, equipment, and towing weight are not factored into the equation. The GVWR is the greatest amount of weight you can have in a vehicle and still be safe – this does include passengers, equipment, the tongue weights of your trailer, and any cargo you’re hauling. And drivers should note that tongue weight is not the same as towing capacity. Rather, it is the amount of weight the trailer puts on the hitch. To sum up, think of GVWR as the highest amount of weight your vehicle and its contents should ever weigh.

Towing Capacity

When the 2019 RAM 1500 is properly equipped, you’ll be able to tow up to 12,750 pounds through College Station or Temple. You will also enjoy these feature highlights:

  • Active-Level™ Four Corner Air Suspension
  • Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path and Trailer Detection
  • 360 degree Surround View Camera
  • Available 4×4 Off-Road Package

When you drive a RAM 1500, you’ll get to your destination safely and with everything you need, no second trip required.
