Example for determining combined weight of occupants and cargo

Vehicle Load Capacity

  • The combined weight of occupants and cargo should never exceed the weight shown on the tire plate in the vehicle.
    Please see the chapter "TIRE PRESSURE PLATE" on page 335.
  • Never exceed the number of passengers shown on the tire pressure plate in the vehicle.

Determining the combined weight of occupants and cargo:

  • Add the weight of all occupants and then add the total luggage weight (figure).

Steps for determining correct load limit

  1. Locate the statement "The combined weight of occupants and cargo should never exceed XXX pounds" on your vehicle's placard (depending on the date of manufacture).
  2. Determine the combined weight of the driver and passengers that will be riding in your vehicle.
  3. Subtract the combined weight of the driver and passengers from XXX pounds or XXX kilograms.
  4. The resulting figure equals the available amount of cargo and luggage load capacity.
    For example, if the "XXX" amount equals 1400 lbs. and there will be five - 150 lb passengers in your vehicle, the amount of available cargo and luggage load capacity is 650 lbs. [1400 -750 (5 x 150) = 650 lbs.].
  5. Determine the combined weight of luggage and cargo being loaded on the vehicle. That weight may not safely exceed the available cargo and luggage load capacity calculated in Step 4.
  6. If your vehicle will be towing a trailer, load from your trailer will be transferred to your vehicle.
    Consult this manual to determine how this reduces the available cargo and luggage load capacity of your vehicle.
