Payload and Towing Capacity

When you are going to pull a trailer with your truck or SUV or when you are going to transport a load within the bed of your truck or inside your vehicle, it is vital that you understand the difference between your vehicle's payload capacity and its towing capacity. Pulling too much weight or carrying too much weight can damage the vehicle's suspension.

The payload capacity of your vehicle is the amount of weight that your vehicle can hold within itself. On the other hand, your vehicle's towing capacity is the amount of weight that it can pull behind it. A vehicle can pull significantly more weight than it can hold within itself.

If you have questions about your vehicle's payload and towing capacity, contact Thompson's Honda. The professionals who work in the service department can also perform a wide variety of routine maintenance and repair services for your vehicle.
