    I know this is a newbie question, but what is GVWR, and how is it determined and what can you do to increase it. I am confused. I have a 95 tahoe with a 6800 gvrw and a 97 silverado with only a 6200 GVWR. Both 4x4. 350 with Auto. I know the 97 puts out more horsepower. what is the difference in numbers and How do I increase the silverado. Thank

    The question that i can't understand is my same truck has three different gvwr's options. 6200, 6600, and 6800. Why are there three and what is the difference?
