Hello,

Ordered a Touring last week. I know, I know, back of the line for you buddy! :smile: :crying:

Perhaps an odd question, but does anyone have data on the front/rear weight balance of the Ascent Touring (curb weight of 4600lbs)? The trim level may not change the F/R balance appreciably. Is it 50/50 or more front heavy? Thanks in advance!

Follow-up to this post, which didn't garner any interest but I now have weight balance data. My Touring with trailer hitch weighed in at approximately 4650 lbs with a near-full tank of gas without me in it. The weigh station I used is primarily meant for weighing trucks and, so, the scale only registers in the nearest 50 lb increment. The trailer hitch will add some weight (I estimate at least 30 lbs) over the factory-reported 4603 for the Touring, bringing it close to the 4650 lb figure. As for the front and rear weight balance, it is about a 53%/47% F/R split of that weight, so not too shabby. I did not measure left/right weight balance, however.
