Are Towing Capacity And Maximum Payload The Same Thing?

One of the most important parts about being a truck owner is being informed about both the way it works as well as the terminology surrounding it. If either are misunderstood, you risk causing serious damage to a major investment. That is why our team here at Camelback Ford want to be sure you understand the difference between the maximum towing capacity and the maximum payload of your truck.

The towing capacity has to do with the amount of weight any truck can pull. This weight of course changes, depending on the slope the truck drives up or down. The payload, on the other hand, is the maximum static mass that the truck can hold without being structurally compromised. If you have any additional questions or would like to schedule an appointment with our service team, then feel free to stop on by and see us at Camelback Ford of Phoenix today!
