What is Towing & Payload Capacity?

A truck's towing capacity is the maximum amount of weight that it can successfully pull behind it. Commonly towed items include trailers and small boats; they attach to the back of the truck and are pulled along. On the other hand, payload capacity refers to the maximum amount of weight that the pickup truck can carry in its bed and cab.

Why It Matters

It's very important to know the difference between towing and payload, and what the towing and payload capacities are for your specific pickup truck. Attempting to tow an object that exceeds the weight limit of the towing capacity can cause harm to your truck. The same goes for payload; putting too much weight in the bed will cause your truck to wear down faster and can damage key parts such as the suspension, frame, bed, and tires.
