The Scary Confusion of Payload and Towing Capacity

There is something that is very scary going on when people talk about carrying with their trucks. This scary thing is the interchangeable use of payload and towing. One of the reasons this is scary is because when it comes to weight capacity, the manufacturers and experts do not use these terms interchangeably.

The towing capacity of a vehicle is typically higher than the payload of the vehicle. S,o it is important to be clear when referring to each of them. The last thing you want is to damage your truck because of filling the payload to towing capacity.

One of the easiest ways to differentiate between the two terms is that payload is a term that is related to carrying while towing is more related to pulling. Therefore, if you are towing something, you are pulling something with your truck while payload is what you carry in your vehicle.
