What are the Three Classifications of Trucks?

Understanding truck classifications is typically the key to understanding the general service and repair process. Unlike standard family cars, trucks are generally classified by their Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR), which is a measure of the maximum weight a truck can carry, including its own weight, passengers, and cargo. This classification is crucial in determining a truck's purpose, its capabilities, and the specific regulations it needs to follow. The three main classifications of trucks include light-duty trucks, medium-duty trucks, and heavy-duty trucks.

Light-Duty & Pickup Truck Repairs

In the US, most trucks that fall under the classifications of Class 1, 2A, or 2B are considered light-duty:

  • Class 1: GVWR 0 to 6,000 lbs | Example: Ford Ranger
  • Class 2 A: GVWR 6,001 to 8,500 lbs | Examples: Ford F-150, RAM 1500
  • Class 2 B: GVWR 8,501 to 10,000 lbs | Examples: Chevy Silverado 2500, RAM 2500

Light-duty trucks, commonly used for personal or light commercial purposes, offer adequate towing and payload capacities. Ideal for towing small trailers, boats, or transporting construction materials, these trucks are mostly equipped with gasoline engines, though there are diesel options on the market as well.

In the United States, most drivers hold a Class C commercial driver's license. This license allows them to operate most vehicles that weigh under 10,001 pounds. However, a Class D license is required for operating heavier light-duty and pickup trucks. This license encompasses a wide range of vehicles, such as some residential cars, SUVs, and light commercial vehicles.
