The Differences Between Towing and Payload Capacity

When you're shopping for a new vehicle, the amount of power your vehicle has is often important. If you're going to be towing extra items with your vehicle, you might be looking closely at the towing rating for a certain vehicle. Payload is something that is similar to towing capacity, but there are some differences. Let's take a look.

Towing capacity refers to the amount of weight that a vehicle can pull behind it. It doesn't matter if the weight is on a trailer or it is a separate vehicle. This is the number of pounds that you can take along.

Payload refers to the amount of weight that a vehicle can carry in its cargo bay or in the back of a pickup truck. While it might seem like these numbers reflect the same thing, they each have their own effect on how the vehicle will function.
