How do I find the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR)?

The Gross Vehicle Weight Rating of a vehicle, sometimes referred to as the Gross Net Vehicle Rating (GNVR), is shown on the vehicle’s Safety Compliance Certification Label, located either on the edge of the driver's side door or the B-Pillar.

Safety Compliance Certification Label

GVWR is the maximum allowable weight of the fully-loaded vehicle (including passengers and cargo). The Gross Vehicle Weight (measured weight of vehicle, cargo, and passengers) should never exceed the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating.

If attempting to determine the maximum allowable cargo capacity, we recommend weighing the vehicle with passengers on a commercial vehicle scale. The difference between the scale weight and the GVWR can be considered the maximum cargo capacity.

For more guidance on vehicle weight information:

  1. Visit the RV & Trailer Towing Guides page on the Ford fleet website.
  2. Scroll down and choose a towing guide.
  3. Refer to the information under What to Know Before You Tow.
