What Towing Capacity and Payload Mean

When buying a truck, it can be easy to confuse towing capacity with the vehicle's payload. This is because the towing capacity tends to be advertised more than the payload figure. The towing capacity number tells you how many pounds it can haul while payload refers to how much weight the truck can handle.

For instance, if you hear that the truck can tow 15,000 pounds, it means that it can haul objects behind it that are up to 15,000 pounds. This is true whether the truck is connected to a hitch or directly to the bed itself. The figure is determined mostly by how well the truck is constructed.
