What is the vehicle load limit?

All vehicles have a load limit, which is the amount of combined weight they can safely carry without putting undue strain on the engine and transmission, which can lead to damage. Your car’s load limit is 825 pounds without the third row seat. With the seat, it’s 1,155 pounds (the 3.5 liter engine also has a 1,155-pound capacity). This amount includes the combined weight of everyone in the car, all the cargo (in the cargo compartment, as well as anything on the roof rack, and your luggage. Don’t exceed this limit, as it will put additional strain, as well as wear and tear on your engine and transmission, and may also overload your suspension and tires.
