What's the Difference Between Towing and Payload Capacity?

Regardless of the type of truck you drive in Woodbridge, understanding the difference between a towing and payload capacity can help you avoid damaging the chassis, suspension, and tires. Both ratings are based off of the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating but are vastly different.

The towing capacity is the feature most advertised in new trucks. It is the weight that the truck can tow behind it in a trailer and tends to be significantly larger than the payload capacity. The payload rating is the weight that the truck can carry in its cabin and bed, and overloading it can cause significant damage to the frame of your truck.

To have the peace of mind that your truck is ready to haul your load, bring it to Palmery Motors today. We offer a wide variety of services to suit any need.
