Express/savanna 3500 specs (gcvw)

Does anyone have specs for the 3500 GM vans as far as total combined weight? I can find max trailer, max hitch, and the 9,600# max vehicle weight but no where can I find gcvw.

My owners manual lists 16,000 lbs GCWR for the 3500 express.

I just found it, yes 16,000# for the 6.0L 3500 is the max. I am surprised the Ford e350 v10 w/4:10 is 18,500 considering the wheelbase is longer on the GM and the 6 speed auto. I am a little disappointed the GM numbers are low.

If you're towing your '14 8311 with the 6.0, you should be fine on both weight and power.

We are close to or over our 15,000# limit on our expedition. So I need to check vehicle curb weights out next. Was hoping for more out of a 3500 chassis.
