ONE WAY TO KNOW PAYLOAD VS. TOWING
Payload and towing can be very confusing for various reasons. Fortunately, there are ways that you can tell the difference between the payload and the towing capacity. When looking at the description of a pickup in order to see how much it can carry, you need to look thoroughly at the description.
One of the ways to know about the payload and the towing capacity is when comparing the numbers to each other. The larger number of lbs that is listed is generally the towing capacity. The smaller number is going to be the payload of the vehicle. The description generally makes it clear.
If you have a ton of heavy items that you are going to load into your vehicle, it is important to make sure that you know the towing capacity and the payload capacity of the vehicle so that you can properly load your vehicle.
