If you plan on hauling any large loads with your new truck, then you need to know the difference between towing capacity and total payload. Some drivers use those terms interchangeably, but that can lead to major problems while loading up your truck or trailer. Here is a closer look at the key differences between these two terms.
The towing capacity of a vehicle is exactly how much weight it can pull behind it. That number is determined by its horsepower, torque, and transmission. Its payload, on the other hand, is how much weight can go inside the cabin and bed of the truck. Going over the maximum payload is extremely dangerous, and it could result in severe damage to the vehicle or a deadly accident.
