Understanding the Key Differences Between Payload and Towing

The terms payload and towing capacity are often erroneously used interchangeably. While they have a similar meaning, there is a distinct difference between the two.

Payload is defined as the items that you carry inside of your vehicle. This figure is determined by the total weight that a vehicle can handle. The towing capacity is defined as the amount of weight that a vehicle can pull behind it. Towing is based on the strength of the frame combined with the power and torque of the engine and its transmission. Vehicles will also generally have a higher towing capacity if they are equipped with the right equipment.
