What is the payload capacity of my vehicle?

Vehicle payload is the capacity in terms of weight that a vehicle is able to carry but does not include the weight of the vehicle itself. The maximum payload for your vehicle appears on the Tire and Loading label located either on the B-pillar, on the edge of the driver's door.

Look for "The combined weight of occupants and cargo should never exceed XXX kg OR XXX lb" for maximum payload.

Tire and Loading Information

If you install any aftermarket or authorized dealer-installed equipment on the vehicle, you must subtract the weight of the equipment from the payload listed on the Tire and loading label in order to determine the new payload.

Notes:

  • Payload is the combined weight of cargo and passengers that your vehicle is carrying.
  • The payload listed on the Tire and Loading Information label is the maximum payload for your vehicle as built by the assembly plant. If you install any additional equipment on your vehicle, you must determine the new payload. To do so, subtract the weight of the equipment from the payload listed on the Tire and Loading label. When towing, trailer tongue weight or king pin weight is also part of the payload.
  • For more information on load limits, refer to your Owner's Manual under Load Carrying
