Towing a trailer increases the GVW by the amount of weight that's attached to the hitch, not by the entire weight of the trailer. An auto's GVWR never changes. 2.) Overload springs help keep the vehicle level when loaded or overloaded, but they do not strengthen the axle, wheel bearings, tires or frame. 3.) Engine, transmission, axle gearing, and passenger weight combined all play a part in the capabilities of your truck. An extra load is put on systems when a vehicle is loaded down enough to take its weight beyond its GVWR. The brakes must work harder, and might not even be able to stop the car or truck efficiently. Tires could blow and suspension might be compromised many components can be pushed beyond their limits when the GVWR is ignored. The GVWR can usually be found on either the driver's door jamb or on the door's frame.
Usually the ranking of the top five trucks based on gas mileage is founded on a combination factors. The prime parameters are the fuel economy rating given by EPA, the transmission of the vehicle, and its inherent popularity amongst car buyers. The formula for calculation for most gas mileage rankings is a combination of the city mpg rating, which forms 55 percent of criterion, and the highway mpg rating that completes the remaining criteria.
I hope this information has been useful in understanding how to determine the safety of hauling and cargo weight for the truck you own, or one you may be considering. Let me know if you have any comments or questions I can answer over at I welcome any feedback comments from other truck lovers like myself. Add some flash to your ride with some accessories or make life easier for hauling with some cargo nets. Above all else, be safe out there.
