Here at Philpott Toyota, we want you to be a knowledgeable truck owner. And driving a large truck usually means you will have to learn the difference between towing and payload. Surprisingly, not a lot of people are aware of the differences.

However, not knowing the difference may also mean possibly causing damage to your truck. Towing capacity refers to the weight that you pull behind your truck. And payload simply refers to the amount of weight that you are carrying inside the vehicle itself. Payload typically is much lower than the amount your truck can tow.

It is important to know how much towing capacity and payload capacity that your truck has before hauling anything big. After all, you want to be a responsible truck owner and not damage your vehicle.

No matter what kind of truck you have, our expert team members can help you with the routine service and maintenance on your vehicle.
