Full-size pickups in America are sold in four ranges — ½ Ton, ¾ 1 Ton, and now 1 1/2 ton. These ranges originally indicated the payload of the vehicle, however pickups can typically carry far than that. For example, the model Ford F-150 (a ½ Ton has a payload of between 1,400 lb kg) and 3,060 lb (1,390 kg), on configuration. Likewise, the 2006 F-350 (a 1 Ton pickup) has a payload of 4,000 lb (1,800 kg) and 5,800 lb kg) depending on configuration.
