Understanding The Difference Between A Truck's Payload And Towing Capacity

Many people confuse the payload of a truck and the towing capacity as being the same thing. This is a big mistake. Confusing the two can lead to serious damage to the vehicle and harm to the driver.

The payload of a vehicle refers to the carrying capacity of a vehicle. It includes both the weight of the vehicle and everything you put inside of it. Passengers, grocery bags, and any other item lying around will all add to the payload.

The towing capacity is completely different from the payload of a truck. It refers to the amount of weight it can pull. Things that determine the amount of towing a vehicle can handle include the engine type, transmission, and frame.

We at Philpott Pre-Owned Super Center have plenty of trucks in stock for you to browse. Our sales staff will also happily explain the differences between each truck to you.
