The 2020 RAM 1500 has a curb weight of between 4,798 to 5,374 pounds unloaded.

Let’s find out everything you need to know about the 2020 RAM 1500 weight!

2020 RAM 1500 Curb Weight vs. GVWR

You can express the 2020 RAM 1500 weight in different ways, so it’s important to keep each term straight when looking over the specs sheet:

  • Curb weight: This is the weight of your unloaded vehicle, the truck’s pure weight before you introduce passengers and cargo.
  • GVWR: The Gross Vehicle Weight Rating is the maximum weight of the loaded vehicle. The GVWR represents how much weight can be safely transported by the truck, including equipment and towing.
  • Tongue Weight: This is the amount of weight that the fully loaded trailer places on the truck’s hitch downward, which is important to know if you tow heavy loads. Too much tongue weight can make your vehicle harder to control.
