MAXIMUM TRAILER WEIGHT RATING (KG/LB.)

This chart gives you an idea of the maximum amount of weight you can confidently trailer with different GMC model lines when your vehicle is properly equipped. When determining the total weight of trailer and cargo, include the weight of any additional passengers and optional equipment (driver weight and base equipment are already included).

  1. Before you buy a vehicle or use it for trailering, carefully review the trailering section of the Owner’s Manual. The weight of passengers, cargo and options or accessories may reduce the amount you can tow.
  2. For comparison purposes only. See the Owner’s Manual and the label on the vehicle door jamb for the carrying capacity of a specific vehicle.

DETAILS ON TRAILERING

Whether its payload, torque, or transmission, finding the best pickup truck for you starts with knowing what you’re looking for. Learn more about trucks and trailering below.

GROSS COMBINATION WEIGHT RATING (GCWR)

Gross Combination Weight Rating is the maximum allowable weight, as determined by the manufacturer, for the truck, the trailer, all equipment, total payload, fuel, fluids and occupants. This is the total loaded road-ready rig.

GROSS VEHICLE WEIGHT RATING (GVWR)

Gross Vehicle Weight Rating is the maximum allowable weight of the vehicle, as determined by the manufacturer, including all of its contents, fuel, optional equipment and occupants. Tongue Weight or Kingpin Weight is also included when trailering.

GROSS TRAILER WEIGHT

Gross Trailer Weight is the weight of a loaded trailer.

CURB WEIGHT

Curb Weight is the weight of an empty vehicle, without payload or driver, with standard equipment, full tank of fuel, coolant, and oil. It is also known as the vehicle weight.

AXLE RATIO

Axle Ratio is the relationship between driveshaft revolutions per minute and the drive axle's revolutions per minute. Rear axle ratios are used so that a truck can be closely tailored to match load hauling and performance demands. Numerically higher ratios (such as 4.10) increase engine rpm relative to the road speed, resulting in greater load hauling power but less road speed and a reduction in fuel efficiency. Numerically lower ratios (such as 3.23) operate just the opposite, resulting in lower engine rpm relative to road speed, less hauling capability but improved fuel efficiency.

TRAILER TONGUE WEIGHT/KINGPIN WEIGHT

The Trailer Tongue or Kingpin Weight is the amount of weight put on the hitch ball or fifth-wheel hitch, respectively.
