WHY DO 200 SERIES LANDCRUISER VEHICLES REQUIRE G.V.M (Gross Vehicle Mass) UPGRADES?
Recent assessment has shown that a fully rigged 200 Series with bull bar, winch, extra fuel tank, roll out drawers and a rear bar with spare wheel carrier can be close to or over the manufacturers Original Equipment GVM of 3300kg and that that’s without anyone in the vehicle! Also worthy of note is that MAIN ROADS and Police use the equation of adding an extra 68kg’s of load per empty seat to the overall weight of the resulted weighed vehicle, plus an additional 13kg’s luggage per person for each unoccupied seat in your car! A 7 seater for example with a driver and 1 passenger may be weighed. Therefore the 5 empty seats are x 68kg’s + 13kg’s = 405kg’s. This figure will be added to the weighed vehicle. Most 200 series Landcruisers from empty have approx a 600kg payload as standard! Add driver, 1 x passenger, fuel any or all accessories then add to that your trailer or caravans tow ball weight and you will soon find that you are over weight. A GVM upgrade will help you with this.
