Dodge Charger: TRAILER TOWING / Trailer And Tongue Weight

Dodge Charger 2011-2022 Owner's Manual / STARTING AND OPERATING / TRAILER TOWING / Trailer And Tongue Weight

Never exceed the maximum tongue weight stamped on your fascia/bumper or trailer hitch.

Dodge Charger. Trailer And Tongue Weight

CAUTION!

Always load a trailer with 60% of the weight in the front of the trailer. This places 10% of the GTW on the tow hitch of your vehicle. Loads balanced over the wheels or heavier in the rear can cause the trailer to sway severely side to side which will cause loss of control of the vehicle and trailer. Failure to load trailers heavier in front is the cause of many trailer collisions.

  • Consider the following items when computing the weight on the rear axle of the vehicle:
  • The tongue weight of the trailer.
  • The weight of any other type of cargo or equipment put in or on your vehicle.
  • The weight of the driver and all passengers.

NOTE:

Remember that everything put into or on the trailer adds to the load on your vehicle. Also, additional factory-installed options or dealer-installed options must be considered as part of the total load on your vehicle. Refer to the “Tire And Loading Information” placard for the maximum combined weight of occupants and cargo for your vehicle.
