Payload And Towing Capacity Aren't The Same Thing

Piazza Honda of Philadelphia knows that some of the terminology surrounding vehicle features can be confusing. There is often confusion when it comes to the terms payload and towing capacity. Some think these two terms refer to the same thing. That is not the case.

Towing capacity refers to how much weight a vehicle can safely pull behind it. If you have a travel trailer for recreation or a load trailer for work, you need to pay particular attention to towing capacity. You want to make sure that any vehicle you purchase has a towing capacity that exceeds what you want to tow.

Payload capacity refers to how much a truck can hold within itself. For instance, payload capacity refers to how much weight a truck can hold within the bed of the truck. If you plan to put a lot of weight in the bed, you need a lot of payload capacity.
