A ton is 2000 pounds (907.19 kg) so does a half-ton truck weigh 1000 pounds (453.5 kg) then? Actually the name doesn’t refer to the weight of the truck. In fact, half-ton pickups weigh much more than that. The weight of a truck without cargo o or passengers is called the curb weight. For example, many 2007 half-ton pickups have curb weights between 9000 (4082.3 kg) and 11000 (4989.5 kg) pounds [source: Edmunds].

The “half-ton” description loosely refers to the truck’s payload capacity. This means that the truck can carry up to 1000 pounds (453.5 kg) of cargo and passengers in the cab and bed. But wait a minute – if you take a look at the stats on modern half-ton ickupspickups, you’ll notice that their payload capacities exceed 1000 pounds (453.5 kg). Although early half-ton pickups could carry max loads of 1000 pounds (453.5 kg), since at least the 1960s, new and improved half-ton pickups have been able to safely carry more, surpassing their namesakes [source: Autotropolis].

But old habits die hard, and the name “half-ton” has stuck around to this day. It’s still helpful as a general classification term, differentiating the group from the larger, heavy-duty three-quarter-ton pickups and one-ton pickups (also obsolete terms). A better way to find out the maximum payload capacity is to check the individual truck’s specs online or in the owner’s manual to see what the manufacturer recommends. [source: How Stuff Works]
