2018 Used Truck Towing Capacity & Payload

Recently, we took you through the three big American pickup truck models to analyze their towing capacities but, considering the fact that we carry far more than just the big three, we thought we’d expand our horizons and highlight both the maximum towing capacity & payload ratings of all the used trucks in our inventory that have a 2018 model year version. That means trucks like the Chevy Avalanche and Dodge Dakota are out, since they’re tragically no longer made, but it means vehicles like the GMC Canyon and Nissan Frontier are included.

As you can see here, the varieties and differences are vast from the smallest midsize pickup truck all the way to the heaviest duty, full-size trucks. There is a truck to meet everyone’s needs, regardless of what you plan to do with it. Off-road trucks might not need much towing capacity or payload, which means smaller rating trucks like the Frontier might be good for that. If you have any questions about any of the trucks listed here or in our inventory, don’t hesitate to give us a call here at the sales desk!
