Learning About Towing Versus Payload Capacity

Understanding how much weight you can put in your truck as compared to the weight that you can tow with it is important. At Charlton Motors and Public Auto Brokers, we can help you understand the difference between towing and payload capacity so that you can make decisions to protect your truck.

The payload capacity of a truck tends to be significantly less than the towing rating. The payload is considered anything that you put in your truck, either in the cab or in the bed. Excess weight can cause damage to your suspension, chassis, and frame. The higher towing capacity rating refers to the amount that you can pull behind the truck with a hitch.

Regardless of the type of driving or hauling you do in Lewisville, keeping your truck in top shape is important. Bring it to us for any service it needs.
