What is the curb weight of my Lincoln?

Curb weight is the vehicle's weight, including a full fuel tank and all standard equipment. It does not include the weight of any passengers, cargo, or optional equipment. 

Keep in mind:

  • Curb weight is considered the closest weight to the vehicle's actual weight. Knowing the curb weight may be helpful when planning to ship the vehicle on a carrier or tow it behind another vehicle. 
  • The actual weight of a vehicle can be precisely determined by weighing the vehicle on a large scale. Scales for cars and trucks are often found at truck stops or where cargo is loaded onto trucks.
  • Lincoln typically publishes curb weight in vehicle sourcebook materials provided to Lincoln Retailers. However, some models and years may not have curb weight published. You may contact your Lincoln Retailer for assistance with obtaining the curb weight.

Calculating the Curb Weight

Curb weight is determined by subtracting the payload or passenger/cargo capacity from the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR).

  • The GVWR is printed on the vehicle’s Safety Compliance Certification Label
  • Payload or passenger/cargo capacity may be printed on the tire specification label located in the driver's door jamb area. 
  • Vehicles may display payload or passenger/cargo weight. However, both terms are the same. 

Example: A 5,280-pound GVWR with a 1,150-pound payload or passenger/cargo capacity would be calculated as 5,280 pounds - 1,150 pounds = a curb weight of 4,130 pounds.
