I’m working beside a gravel pit so this morning I drove over and asked the boys in the scale house if they’d weigh my truck.

2012 Silverado LTZ crew cab 4x4 short box 5.3L.

With me in it, as well as some gear, an estimated combined total of 300lbs. They gave me 2740kg, or 6040lbs. A bit of a surprise since the manufacturer curb weight for my spec’d truck is, as far as I can find on the Google is 5340lbs.

I thought curb weight was the vehicle with fluids as it sits ready for the customer. Is that spec weight minus a few things like spare tire, floor mats, etc.?
