There are plenty of reasons why someone might want to locate a great vehicle that weighs over 6000 pounds, however we won’t be getting into all of that in this article! Instead, we spent a ton of time looking for all of the possible vehicles on the market today that weigh over 6000 pounds, and even found some that weigh over 7000 and even 10,000 pounds. We also detailed our favorite vehicles from within that list, and then give you an easy to read table to give you an easy way to know which vehicle might work well for you.

This article took hours of research to put together, as this is the only resource I have found that details all vehicles that are over 6,000 pounds with their actual GVWR (read what that is later in the article). I hope this helps you out, so let’s get into it!

Weighing in at over 6000 pounds, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is a hefty SUV. But that doesn’t mean it’s not a great vehicle. In fact, the Grand Cherokee is one of the most popular SUVs on the market. It’s packed with features, including a powerful engine, comfortable seats, and plenty of cargo space.

And thanks to its four-wheel drive, it can handle any terrain you throw at it. Whether you’re heading to the mountains or the beach, the Grand Cherokee is up for the challenge. So if you’re looking for a great SUV that can handle anything, the Jeep Grand Cherokee is a perfect choice.

I have always been a huge fan of Grand Cherokee’s, really any generation. I think they are a highly capable, yet also great looking vehicles to own. They tend to hold their value well, and mix luxury with practicality.

What vehicles weigh over 7000 pounds?

Our Choice: Ford F-150 Raptor

Weighing in at over 6,000 pounds, the Ford F-150 Raptor is a heavy duty truck that means business. Its large size and powerful engine make it capable of tackling any job, while its muscular exterior and comfortable interior make it a pleasure to drive. Whether you’re looking for a workhorse or a daily driver, the Raptor is a great choice. And with its starting price of just over $50,000, it’s also a great value. So if you’re in the market for a new truck, be sure to check out the Ford F-150 Raptor. You won’t be disappointed.

Ever since the Raptor was released, I have always wanted to own on for myself. While hopefully that will happen soon, I will always enjoy getting to talk about it here on this site.

Now, as soon as I can get my hands on a Raptor R, with over 700 horsepower, I think that will be a blast, and will likely take this Raptor’s spot as my favorite truck over 7,000 pounds.

What Vehicles Weigh Over 10,000 pounds?

Our Choice: GMC Hummer EV

The GMC Hummer EV is a sight to behold. It’s a massive electric truck that weighs over 10,000 pounds, but it’s also crazy fast. It can go from 0 to 60 in just 3 seconds flat. And it’s not just fast in a straight line either. It can also do some seriously impressive off-roading. The Hummer EV is definitely one of the most unique and interesting vehicles on the market today. If you’re looking for an electric truck that’s sure to turn heads, the Hummer EV is definitely worth a look.

Most of the weight of this vehicle is the massive battery that sits at the bottom of this vehicle, which on its own is the weight of a small car. However, this massive battery also gives it a low center of gravity (and over 1,000 horsepower), making it not only hefty, but also nimble.

What makes these vehicles weigh so much?

One big reason is safety. These days, cars and trucks are designed with an eye towards protecting passengers in the event of a collision. That means beefier materials and stronger construction overall. Plus, there’s all the extra safety equipment that’s now standard in most vehicles, from airbags to anti-lock brakes. All of that weighs a vehicle down.

Another factor is size. Vehicles have gotten bigger and more luxurious over the years. More room for passengers means more room for materials like leather, wood, and metal. Not to mention all the electronic goodies that people expect in their cars nowadays. GPS, entertainment systems, climate control… it all adds up.

So next time you’re complaining about how heavy your car is to push around in the snow, just be thankful that it’s not even heavier!

What does GVWR mean?

GVWR stands for “Gross Vehicle Weight Rating”. This is what a vehicle is expected to weigh if it was completely maxed out. This would include the people riding in the vehicle, luggage in the back, possibly towing something on the back, etc.

Basically this is a rating that allows people, and businesses know how much a vehicle will weigh when it is actually being utilized.

This is different from curb weigh, in the fact that curb weight is the vehicle’s weight without all of these things. These two weights can vary greatly between each other, so don’t be confused when you see your vehicle curb weight way less than your GVWR.


I know, I know, this article was incredibly dry, however it took me hours and hours to gather all of the data needed to make it happen. I’m here to help answer your vehicle questions, and rev up your vehicle knowledge. I hope it helped you out, and that you stick around to read through other articles on the site!
