    I bet FCA would have loved to put the Duster name on a CUV.....

    Yes I was in it, I don't remember how much gas was in it. I remember beating the Camaro SS and there was like 80 pounds different between the two cars

    Now, does that SAE J1100 standard (or the European standard, for that matter ) require the vehicle weight to include all relevant Recall Notices ... for the sake of completeness? ( ;) )

    Bob Sheaves posted the criteria years ago. I can't recall it now.

    Curb weight (US English) or kerb weight (UK English) is the total weight of a vehicle with standard equipment, all necessary operating consumables such as motor oil, transmission oil, coolant, air conditioning refrigerant, and a full tank of fuel, while not loaded with either passengers or cargo.” — Wikipedia (I can't believe I'm quoting them).

    From reference.com:

    QUICK ANSWER
    The curb weight of a vehicle is the total weight of the vehicle with all of its equipment, including a full tank of gas and coolant and motor oil, but without any cargo or passengers. This is the standard weight that is used by manufacturers when assigning a weight to a vehicle.

    Around 20 other sites seem to agree.

    Did not stand up well in crash tests but the handeling and brakes saved my life a few times. Performance at that time period was outstanding. I moved all my stuff from a 4 room apartment to my first house in it. Finally sold it in 2001.!

    Twin turbo sounds like a maintenance headache. 5.7 hemi gets good fuel economy, horsepower is more than I need. Make it a 4.7 hemi and save weight.

    Trademarks, if not used, do expire and can be taken.

    Okay ...

    But actual True ' Curb Weight ' is the weight of the cured, finished Portland Cement Concrete ( or Bituminous product ) of the section under consideration - :p
