GVM FAQs GVM Upgrades in Nissan Patrols
What is a GVM rating?
Every vehicle on our roads today has an official legally allocated Gross Vehicle Mass rating (GVM) and Payload Capacity (how much weight a vehicle can carry in both passengers and cargo in the cab and tray bed). The GVM rating is the maximum allowable weight figure (in kg’s) as specified by the manufacturer when fully loaded. It’s essentially the maximum legal weight, that you can safely drive at for that particular vehicle.
Why upgrade my vehicles GVM?
When your vehicle is fully loaded for the journey ahead or if you are carrying the tools of your work trade, chances are that your vehicle may be overloaded beyond its GVM and Payload capacity and you may not even know it. Common items such as tools, tool boxes, cargo, bull bars, winches, towbars, fuel, accessories, passengers, recovery gear all combine to add weight to your vehicle and decrease the available payload. It is also important to note that if you have purchased a cab/ chassis, the weight of any tray or service body is considered to be part of the “kerb weight” – therefore further reducing the available payload.
Is your Patrol GVM upgrade legal?
Yes, when the GVM upgrade kit has been installed on your compatible vehicle by our trained technicians, a new compliance plate will be fitted. The new vehicle can now be registered with new increased GVM. This procedure will allow the vehicle to be legally registered and driven in all states of Australia.
