In order to determine how much weight your vehicle can safely carry, you'll have to look at the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR).
If you exceed the GVWR, you may damage your car.
Never overload your car or truck or tow more than the GVWR allows, since this can cause damage to the vehicle and may make it more difficult for you to stop safely or control your car.
That's why automakers always specify a car's gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR).
The GVWR tells you about your car's weight limits.
While your GVW changes all the time, depending on what you're carrying or towing, your GVWR will always be the same.
In order to drive safely and avoid harm to your vehicle, it's essential that you make sure your GVW is lower than the number specified as your GVWR.
Once you've found your GVW, be sure to compare it against your GVWR.
If the GVW is higher than the GVWR, you'll need to remove some cargo in order to travel safely.
