TON­NAGE TI­TLES

Boating - - MOTORHEAD -

Half-ton, three-quar­ter-ton and 1-ton pickup clas­si­fi­ca­tions orig­i­nated with early pay­load ca­pac­i­ties. Though we still use these terms, pay­load rat­ings are far higher now than when the clas­si­fi­ca­tions were coined. Some re­fer to half-ton trucks as light-duty pick­ups, though with some tow rat­ings ex­ceed­ing 12,000 pounds, that term might be out­dated as well.
