How much does a car weigh?

One of my friends told me that she and her friends couldn't find a parking spot. However, they did find one car that was taking up two parking spots. So, all these women moved this vehicle to fit it in its spot correctly so they could park. It made me wonder how much a car weighs because I think it’d be cool to just lift and move a vehicle that’s blocking me from parking correctly.

Answer
That is very impressive! Your average car is hefty, about 2,871 pounds or 1302 kilograms. Different types of vehicles will weigh different amounts. Let’s look at a few together.
A Chevrolet Spark is considered a small compact car and weighs between 2,246 to 2,312 pounds.
A Toyota Camry is considered a midsize car and weighs between 3,310 to 3,595 pounds.
A van like a Chrysler Pacifica is quite big and weighs 6,055 pounds.
A truck, on the other hand, like a Ford Ranger, weighs between 3,922 to 4,441pounds.
Lifting things, especially heavy things like cars, can be hazardous, so please be very, very careful. Any mistake could result in very terrible injuries.
