Differentiating Between Towing and Payload Capacity

Knowing the difference between the towing capacity and the payload capacity can prevent you from placing too much weight into your truck, potentially causing damage to its frame, chassis, or suspension. DCH Honda of Temecula can explain the various ratings and help you make informed decisions.

The payload capacity of a truck is based on the strength of the frame and its Gross Vehicle Weight Rating. Since it is generally less than the towing capacity of a truck, it's important to understand the difference between the two. Towing weight in a trailer is much easier on a truck, but overloading a trailer can damage the engine and transmission.
