TOWING WEIGHTS

For details of the Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW), and the front and rear axle weights, see WEIGHTS.

NOTES

Include the trailer's tongue weight when calculating the GVW.

NOTES

When calculating the vehicle's rear axle weight, the vehicle's payload weights must also be considered. Include the combined weights of all the rear passengers, the luggage compartment, roof rack, accessory equipment, and the trailer's tongue weight.

Trailer Variant lbs (kg)
Technically permissible maximum towable mass (Unbraked Trailers). All vehicles. 1 653 (750)
Technically permissible maximum towable mass (Trailers with Overrun Brakes). All vehicles. 5 291 (2 400)
Technically permissible maximum static vertical load/mass of the vehicle's coupling point. All vehicles. 385 (175)
Maximum trailer tongue weight.* All vehicles. 220 (100)
Gross Train Weight (GTW). 3.0L gasoline. 10 803 (4 900)
2.0L diesel. 10 714 (4 860)

*For every lb (kg) above 220 lbs (100 kg) added to the trailer's tongue weight, the same weight must be removed from the vehicle's payload. Make sure that the GVW and the rear axle weights are not exceeded.

NOTES

For every 3 281 feet (1 000 metres) increase above sea level, the GTW must be reduced by 10%.
