What's the Difference Between Towing and Payload?

A common question in the trucking community is what is the difference between towing capacity and maximum payload? The term seems to be commonly used as one and the same. That is why our team here at Route 23 Honda of Pompton Plains, NJ wants you to be an informed truck owner and realize that there is a big difference between the two terms and it can be potentially dangerous to misunderstand them.

First, towing capacity is the maximum amount of weight that a truck can pull when hooked up to the trailer hitch. Payload on the other hand is the maximum amount of weight the truck can carry in the bed of the truck. These numbers are not always the same and if they are exceeded in either case, there is a high probability of damage.
