...then I'll just run an extension cord into the house with either the 2.4 kW or 9.6 kW onboard power (again dependent on pricing).
2000 lb payload > 1500 lb payload. Bikes can go over the tailgate or on my hitch rack.
Electric! So quiet, the zippiness as above, remote interior conditioning...
...Anyway, both the Suburban and the GLE were sagged way down low into their rear travel. I'm guessing they're both significantly above their payload capacity (and thus likely rear axle weight rating).
edit: old context on the GLE and its payload re their chosen trailer and its tongue...
...Lightning will be $3.5k through the end of 2022. (Cars are $2.5k. Light duty trucks up to 10k GVWR are higher.)
edit: if GVWR > 8500, that is. It'll be close given 2k payload and what the thing should weigh.
Small pack hp/tq 426/775. Big pack 563/775. This implies software limiting of current at high rpms for the small pack.
Small pack payload/towing 2,000/7,700. Big pack payload/towing 1,800/10,000, so payload will be tight with a big trailer and people.
BlueCruise, which is like...
...That's IRS. On a Ford half-ton. This is huge, assuming it percolates back to the gassers.
Re towing and payload the Ford site has some more details, proving my suspicion correct:
Maximum available towing of 10k: XLT or Lariat with big pack and Max Trailer Tow Package. Meanwhile, max payload...
...to be about 180 kWh going backwards from charging 15% to 100% SOC in about 8 hours on a 240V 80A EVSE, presumably the big pack.
2,000 lb payload. 10,000 lb towing capacity with the big pack—unclear whether this pack and the payload are mutually exclusive, though. On-board scale for tongue...
...range on the 4x4 assuming he picked it. 10 speed auto. Magnetic ride control standard and air suspension optional.
7,700 GVWR with 1,612 lb payload/6,016 lb curb weight (math, GM?), 14,500 GCWR with Max Trailering package (500 less sans it). 14,500 - 7,700 == 6,800.
It should tow better...
These are super cool features. The display on the taillights a la a phone's (or e-bike's!) battery indicator is a nice touch.
...2018 truck specs since Dodge doesn't have easily findable PDFs for later years and assuming the highest numeric final drive ratio: 6,580 lb payload, 14k GVWR, 39,100 GCWR, 31,210 lb max trailer weight rating.
I'm not quite sure how that math lines up, as isn't GCWR - GVWR == trailer weight...
...GX has the same nominal 6,500 lb tow rating as my Land Cruiser (and Tim’s old Tacoma, for that matter), but that’s against 1,401-1,470 lbs payload depending on trim.
So 912 to 843 lbs left for their family of 4 + luggage in the GX until GVWR is exceeded. Even at that small trailer weight...
...and trailer. From the interior layout and make I figured out the model, and also know of the pickup they chose.
Missing datum here is of payload, which is 1,820 lbs for a Trail Boss 1500 standard bed crew cab 4x4. (I safely assume they didn’t opt for the V6.)
At GVWR for the trailer...
...317 ft-lbs torque. 115 kW DCFC capability, and it sounds like ~10 kW level 2 charging. 2.4 kW onboard power available for tools.
3,800 lbs payload for cargo van build, and available in all three lengths and roof heights + cutaway version.
I hope to see a lot of these on construction sites...
...What I found:
1) The Ram 2500 CNG appears to have been discontinued in 2017.
2) It had really crap payload and towing numbers for a nominally 3/4 ton truck.
3) Landi Renzo could convert a 6.2 liter gas F-350 to bi-fuel CNG/gas, on the other hand, and maintain good capacity.
...this, is a 200 series a good choice? Per wheelbase one should stick to 21', but close enough there. Set up as a 7 seater there's 1,570 lbs payload capacity and an 8,100 lb nominal towing capacity.
Yeah, that's not a good idea: 570 lbs of remaining payload for 5 people + cargo. Payload always...
...bed on a half ton pickup?
After all, there's no realistic 5th wheel use case for them due to non-8' bed clearance when cornering, lack of payload for pin weight, and that the "1/2 ton compatible" 5th wheels are all dangerously close if not over the 5th wheel towing rating for an F-150...
...is link to a specific post from last page re F-150s
In particular, note 1,810 lbs payload for the hybrid. In the testing video they had that big box trailer at over 12k lbs per them. 200 lbs of a solo driver and test gear and that leaves max of 13% tongue weight… a fine line to walk indeed.
