John, Roanoke, Va.

The gross vehicle weight rating is 10,600 pounds for the F-350 Super Duty crew cab with four-wheel drive and the 6.75-foot cargo box. The GVWR for the same truck with the 8-foot cargo box is 10,800 pounds.


GVWR is the weight of the vehicle, all installed optional equipment and what it can carry in passengers and/or cargo. This is not the same as the payload, which is how much a vehicle can carry in cargo and passengers. For the F-350 models discussed here, the payload is 3,860 pounds with the 6.75-foot cargo box and 3,930 pounds with the eight-foot box.
