Gross Combined Vehicle Weight Rating (GCVWR): What You Need to Know

Gross combined vehicle weight rating is an important phrase that all drivers need to know before hauling any loads. That particular specification tells you exactly how much weight your truck or SUV can safely haul at all times. Going over that number could result in a major accident or expensive damage to your vehicle.

The GCVWR is the maximum weight of your loaded trailer and truck. What many drivers don’t realize is that they must take a vehicle’s curb weight into consideration as well. If your truck weighs 7,000 pounds and the GCVWR is 15,000 pounds, then you can safely haul an extra 8,000 pounds in the bed and trailer.

Our world-class service department in North York can help you keep your car or truck running smoothly for years. We invite you to stop by FARAZ AUTO SALES today for all of your service and repair needs.
