As of August 2015, to find a chart of gross vehicle weights, go online to HowStuffWorks and access the How Gross Vehicle Weight Rating, or GVWR, Works article. Click to the second page, which lists many types of vehicles.
Select your vehicle's make. On the next page, scroll down the chart to find the correct year and model. The gross vehicle weight is on the right side of the chart in pound units.
The GVWR is the manufacturer's weight limit for a vehicle. This is a combination of its base weight, accessories, cargo and passengers. If a vehicle is overloaded, problems sometimes show up with its brakes, suspension or tires.
