Is towing capacity assuming an empty bed and passenger compartment?

Does anyone have a definitive, documented answer from Ford on whether the listed towing capacities assume an “empty” vehicle (just a driver and no other payload) or a “full” vehicle (full passengers plus 1500lbs in the bed)? Or perhaps they came up with some middle ground?

That's what GCWR (Gross Combined Weight Rating) in the towing guide information encompasses.
Well, don’t I feel silly now lol. Thanks.
Figure above answered the question. My understanding is 1,500 lbs is the total weight. If a person weighs 500 lbs then the bed can only have 1,000lbs of weight added to it.

Is GWCR different than GVWR?
GCWR is the gross combined weight - tow vehicle + trailer. GVWR is the gross vehicle weight for the tow vehicle or the trailer -- they each have a GVWR.
holy fuck!
and they need a Kings Ranch truck rather than a Mav😊
I seen 8145 lbs combined. So if you tow 4000lbs with the truck at 3731 so.. so cut the 425 lbs by the weight of passenger
