WITH A GROSS VEHICLE WEIGHT RATING IN EXCESS OF 6,000 POUNDS

 

Luxury Autos – Listed Property Limitations:  Luxury Automobiles: Chart of Trucks, Vans, and SUVs with GVWR Greater Than 6,000 Pounds

Trucks and vans, including SUVs, with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) greater than 6,000 pounds are not subject to the annual depreciation caps under the luxury car rules ((15,108.021).  Such vehicles are excluded from the definition of a passenger automobile to which the depreciation caps apply

Gross vehicle weight rating is the maximum allowable weight of a fully loaded vehicle (i.e., weight of vehicle, including vehicle options, passengers, cargo, gas, oil, coolant, etc.).  Generally, the GVWR is equal to the sum of the vehicle's curb weight and payload capacity.  The GVWR of a particular vehicle is usually located on the vehicle's Safety Compliance Certification Label, which is attached to the left front door lock facing or the door latch post pillar.

 

The following is a list of 2002, 2003, and 2004 model year trucks, SUVs, and vans with a gross vehicle weight rating in excess of 6,000 pounds.  This list was compiled by CCH Law Editors and does not necessarily include all qualifying vehicles.
