Why is it important to know your truck weight?

Truck weight is important because it is required to calculate the payload capacity and towing capacity of your truck.

The weights listed in this article are the curb weight. The curb weight is defined as the weight of a truck without any passengers or cargo, but with a full tank of gas.

Any changes to a truck, such as extra lights and front grills can increase this weight, so you may need to determine the actual weight of your truck for accurate calculations.

Payload capacity helps you to determine the amount of weight that a truck can carry and is calculated by subtracting the curb weight above from the GVWR.

Towing capacity is the maximum amount that a truck can tow. It is calculated by subtracting the curb weight from the GCWR.

  1. 1k payload is about worthless. Hilux is twice that yet a smaller truck. I know many in the 7-8k range with Tacomas so I’d be curious if it is just the lame soft springs they use for the American market that destroy the payload since the frames, axles, bearings and brakes seem to be up to task otherwise.

    • Sounds like your confusing towing cap with cargo cap. No midsized or even full size truck anywhere in the world is rated 7-8k like you seem to think.

      Tacoma can to upwards of 7k while having a measly 1100lb cargo cap. They aren’t the same thing
