Your truck has limitations. Understanding the difference between towing capacity and payload limits is important to get the full use of your vehicle.
Many people confuse the two terms and think they are the same thing. They’re not.
Towing capacity refers to what the truck can tow behind it. The weight given is the maximum amount the truck can tow.
Payload capacity refers to the weight in the truck. The weight can be anything, from the driver and passengers to a load of rock in the bed. The payload limit is only for the truck itself.
So, you can tow the limit and carry your payload limit at the same time and be fine.
At Car Trackers, we care about drivers and want you to get the most out of your vehicles. Sell us your truck so you can upgrade to something with a better payload or tow rating!
