Do you know how much your car weighs?
This may not seem like a need-to-know feature of your vehicle, but there are some instances when knowing the weight is important. Like when crossing certain bridges that can only allow up to a certain weight. Or when you’re trying to properly classify and categorize your car for the DMV.
So today, we’ll be looking at cars that weigh around 2 tons (4,000 lbs.). You may have one of these cars sitting in your driveway.
Cars Weighing Just Under 2 Tons
1. 2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid – (3,950 lbs.)
First the Prius, and then this. The 2016 RAV4 hybrid offers an EPA fuel-economy rating of 33 mpg combined, or 8-mpg better than the non-hybrid.
A RAV4 hybrid buyer can expect to recoup a lot of savings in fuel. In every RAV4 hybrid, a 2.5-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine rated at 150 horsepower works in conjunction with three electric motors to send power to all four wheels. Total system power is 194 horsepower.
2. 2014 Porsche Panamera – (3,968 lbs.)
The 2014 Panamera makes a visual statement that is unmistakable — it has major stage presence.
In 2014, Porsche upped the antes with a revised exterior showing off tighter lines, a new plug-in hybrid model and a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6.
A total of nine models made up the Panamera lineup, including the 4S Executive and Turbo Executive, featuring rear bucket seats divided by a full-length center console.
The horsepower ranges from 310 to 520, with the plug-in hybrid promising a 0 to 60 run in 5.2 seconds and a top speed of 167 mph.
Cars Weighing Just Over 2 Tons
3. 2016 Kia Sorento – (4,004 lbs.)
The 2016 Kia Sorento is a midsize SUV available in five- and seven-passenger configurations and five trim levels: L, LX, EX, SX, and SX Limited.
Every Sorento comes with Driver Mode Select, which features three modes (Normal, Sport and Eco) that alter transmission shift points and steering effort.
The 2016 model carried on the tradition of doing a great job of occupying middle ground between compact and midsize SUVs.
4. 2016 Chrysler 300 (4,029 lbs.)
The Chrysler 300 combines the classic American style and wide range of engines to be one of the best vehicles of its time.
Its combination of luxury and attitude separates it from the pack. This is a full-size sedan available in four different trim levels: 300 Limited, 300S, 300C, and 300C Platinum.
5. 2013 Ford Taurus – (4,037 lbs.)
The 2013 Ford Taurus is a comfortable ride with plenty of truck space. At 20.1 cubic feet, it has more storage space than most other cars in its class.
It has seating for five in a quiet cabin that features high-quality, soft-touch materials.
6. 2016 Buick Envision – (4,047 lbs.)
The 2016 Buick Envision is a small crossover SUV that comes with plenty of features at a reasonable price.
The Envision seats five people and comes in two trim levels, Premium I and Premium II.
7. 1955 Buick Special – (4,069 lbs.)
The Buick Special was Buick’s lowest-priced model, starting out as a full-size car in 1936.
By 1970, the Special was no longer offered as a standalone model.
8. 2007 Cadillac CTS-V – (4,110 lbs.)
The 2007 Cadillac CTS-V comes as a four-door sedan with one trim level only.
Regular features come standard and include HID headlights, 18-inch wheels, leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, sport seats, Bose audio system, a navigation system and a power sunroof.
9. 1974 Chevy Monte Carlo – (4,122 lbs.)
The Monte Carlo was introduced in 1969 and was designed as a personal luxury vehicle — four-person two-door coupe.
It was an instant success on the market, competing with the Pontiac Grand Prix and Ford Thunderbird. Three models later, nearly 440,000 cars had sold.
10. 2015 Lexus LS 460 – (4,233 lbs.)
The 2015 Lexus LS 460 embodies everything you’d expect in a luxury vehicle — it’s whisper-quiet, well-built and luxurious.
The ride is smooth, even with a V8 engine under the hood. The sedan is available in regular- and extended-wheelbase (LS 460L) models, with rear- or all-wheel drive.
11. 2020 Honda Pilot – (4,319 lbs.)
The Honda Pilot is a three-row crossover with an exceptionally comfortable and spacious cabin. It comes in six primary trim levels: LX, EX, EX-L, Touring, Elite and Black Edition.
