Differences Between Towing and Payload Capacity

At Loving Honda, we want you to be able to take care of your truck by understanding the important differences between payload and towing capacity. Overloading your truck can cause severe damage.

The towing capacity of a truck is the amount that it can tow from its hitch. This is usually based on the frame of the truck, the torque that the engine can create, and the type of transmission it has. On the other hand, the payload includes everything that is inside of the truck or in the bed. Trying to carry too much can cause damage to the suspension, chassis, bed, and tires of your truck and reduce its lifetime.

To have a professional take care of your truck, bring it to our dealership and catch any small problems before they grow.
