What Is an SAE J2807 Towing Rating?

Designed by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), this series of tests and requirements make sure there’s an even level playing field when it comes to towing. It sets requirements for the following areas of the truck:

  • Structure
  • Ballast
  • Chassis
  • Tires

Also, the tow ratings take into account more than just engine power. Hitch structure and overall vehicle dynamics are also incorporated. Because of this, the SAE can accurately measure the towing capabilities of a truck. With trucks not measured by SAE J2807 standards, the towing numbers will not always be accurate. You’ll have to do more research to find the true Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR).

*Before towing, confirm your vehicle and trailer are compatible, hooked up and loaded properly and that you have any necessary additional equipment. Do not exceed any Weight Ratings and follow all instructions in your Owner’s Manual. The maximum you can tow depends on base curb weight plus the total weight of any cargo, occupants, and added vehicle equipment. “Added vehicle equipment” includes additional standard/optional equipment and accessories added by the manufacturer, dealers, and/or vehicle owners. The only way to be certain of your vehicle’s exact curb weight is to weigh your vehicle without passengers or cargo.
