Understanding the Differences Between Towing and Payload Capacity

If you are going to use your truck as it is meant to be used, you have to know the difference between towing and payload capacity. You need to know what your truck can handle, and you cannot get these two numbers confused. Reed Chevrolet is here to help you understand the difference.

The towing capacity of your vehicle is just that, the weight that your vehicle can pull behind it. This number may be higher than the payload number, and that is for a good reason. The payload capacity of your vehicle is the amount of weight that the vehicle can have inside of it. This includes the weight of your passengers and any weight that is actually in the vehicle, itself.
