How to Tell the Difference Between Towing vs. Payload Capacity

Do you get confused about the differences between the towing vs. payload capacity in a truck? Today, the team at Hendrick Cars Cary will clear up all the confusion.

Payload capacity is the added weight you wither place in the bed or the cab of your vehicle. It doesn't matter if you are hauling 100 sheets of sod in the bed or you just picked up a group of your friends and are driving them to work, these all qualify as payload. If it is added to the cab or the bed, you just increased the payload.

Towing capacity is easier to understand because it is simply anything added on a trailer that is pulled behind the truck by way of the bumper or hitch. Whether another car or a boat on a trailer, it is towing capacity.
