Best Commercial Gross Vehicle Weight Ratings

August 20th, 2018 by

Commercial trucks
An extremely important aspect of vehicle specs, whether it’s a commercial truck or a sedan, is the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR). This number is the maximum weight your vehicle can carry, excluding trailers. Keep in mind, this takes into account base overall vehicle weight, passengers, cargo, etc. To put it in simple terms: this is the metric for how much weight your vehicle can handle before it becoming unsafe and problematic. When selecting a commercial vehicle, you want to have a good GVWR to work with, so that you can transport plenty of cargo to wherever you’re heading. Let’s take a look at the highest rated vehicles we carry in terms of GVWR.

Our Strongest Options

  • 2019 Hino 268A: This hefty and durable chassis comes bearing a massive GVWR of 25,950 pounds
  • 2019 Isuzu NPR: Carry tons of cargo across Milwaukee thanks to a GVWR of 14,500 pounds
  • 2019 GMC Sierra 3500 4WD Crew Cab: Capable and flexible, this truck has a GVWR of 13,025 pounds
  • 2019 Chevy Silverado 3500Hd 4WD Reg. Cab: This mainstay pickup, with an attached dump body, allows for a GVWR up to 13,200 pounds
  • 2018 Hino 258LP: Easily haul cargo around Racine with the 25,500 pound GVWR
  • 2018 Chevy Express Cutaway High Cube: This practical vehicle comes packing a 9,900 pound GVWR

Not only do we carry plenty of heavy-duty commercial vehicles like those listed above, but we also offer a wide selection of more practical, smaller-to-medium-duty vehicles for non-business focused needs. Opt for great choices like the 2018 GMC Canyon or 2018 Chevy Colorado, which have a 5,700 and 5,600 pound GVWR, respectively. Another thing to keep in mind is most GVWR listed above are based on the chassis of the vehicle only, meaning the placement of a cube, trailer, dump body, or anything similar, will take a substantial chunk out of the GVWR. Still, these vehicles offer plenty of power and ability for whatever job may come your way. If you ever need a new part or some service on your commercial vehicle, we have a great rotating selection of available specials.

More to Keep in Mind

When thinking about your next commercial vehicle, remember that GVWR is not taking into account any attached trailer or something similar. If you’re trying to figure out your max weight rating for that sort of job, what you want to look for is the Gross Combined Vehicle Rating (GCVR), which will give you the maximum weight the vehicle can handle when a trailer is attached. Much like GVWR, the GCVR is a number you should be very wary of. These are not just suggestions, they are manufacturer-backed specifications you should adhere to for vehicle safety.
