Understanding the Towing and Payload Capacity of Your Truck

Mixing up the meanings of payload and towing capacity could cause you to overload your truck and cause damage to its chassis, frame, suspension, or tires. Barber Honda will help you understand how much weight your truck can carry and how much it can tow.

The payload rating of a truck measures how much weight can be placed in the bed and cab of the vehicle. It is calculated from the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating and the strength of the frame. The payload capacity is generally far less than the towing capacity, which is a measure of how much weight can be pulled behind a truck using a hitch.

Regardless of the make or model of the truck you drive in Bakersfield, we have the skills needed to service it and keep it running smoothly.
