Depending on what style and engine CCs you go with, ATVs (All Terrain Vehicles) are available in a wide range of sizes and weights.
How Much Does an ATV Weigh?
On average, you’ll find ATVs in the following ranges:
- Average dry weight: 200 to 950 lbs.
- Average length: 44 to 95”
- Average width: 30 to 50”
The overall dimensions and weight of the ATV will vary depending on:
- Whether it’s a sport, utility, or youth quad.
- The size of the engine.
- Additional design features.
Considering what size ATV you should get is important. Certain sizes are better suited for different types of riding, and some ATVs may actually be too big for certain trails.

ATV Dry Weight vs Wet Weight or Curb Weight
When looking at the listed weight for a particular ATV or UTV, make a note of whether it is listed as the vehicle’s dry weight or wet weight.
Dry weight refers to the weight of the vehicle without an fuel, oil, or other consumables added.
Wet weight refers to the weight of the vehicle when there is gas in the tanks and oil in the engine.

What size ATV do you need? (ATV Weight by Type)
The appropriate size and weight ATV for you will depend on where and how you want to ride.
In most cases, larger dimensions and weights are associated with bigger engines and/or features.
For the most part, Sport ATVs will be slightly lighter than Utility ATVs.
And, a bigger engine typically means a faster, more powerful vehicle.
A bigger ATV may be better suited for hauling cargo or being put to work. While a lighter ATV will be easier to handle on narrow trails and over rough terrain.
If you’re new to riding ATVs or are introducing your child to off-roading, a lighter, less powerful quad is often the best choice.
You’ll also need to consider where you’ll be riding.
If you’re working in open fields with a utility ATV, overall dimensions are less of a concern.
But, if you plan to ride on trails and need to transport your ATV back and forth – you should probably pay attention to the dimensions of your 4×4.
For example, many off-road riding trails come with ATV width restrictions of no wider than 50.”
ATVs that exceed the posted width restriction may have a difficult time navigating through the trails, crossing bridges, and getting through gates.
Will an ATV fit in the bed of a truck?
Another important consideration you’ll need to make when choosing the size ATV you want is how you’re going to transport it from place to place.
If you have a trailer to tow your ATV, the overall size may be less of a concern.
But, if you plan to transport your ATV in the back of your pickup truck, you’ll definitely need to make sure it fits.
Most full-size pickup trucks are able to fit any standard sized ATV.
However, smaller and mid-sized pickup capacity may vary.
Before trying to load your ATV into your truck, be sure to take measurements and make sure there’s enough room to secure it tightly.
Most truck beds are available in the following lengths:
- Short Bed pickups: 5’5” to 5’8”
- Standard pickups: 6’5”
- Standard Long Beds: 7’
- Long Beds: 8’
The inner dimensions of most truck beds (between the raised wheel wells) are typically designed with a width of 4.” Most pickup trucks should be able to carry ATVs that are 48” wide or less.
