>Can someone provide the range and payload for a 757-xxx?

It depends on the engine and MGTOW options selected for the aircraft.
Passenger aircraft have MGTOW of 220,000 lbs to 240,000 lbs and range
in excess of 4,500 miles.  Boeing says cargo volume is 1,790 ft^3,
while United's schedule says only 1,698 (or 26,600 lbs).

According to Boeing's sales glossy, a 757 freighter, which can go up
to a MGTOW of 255,000 lbs, can carry a full payload (6,600 ft^3 on the
main deck, 1,830 ft^3 in the belly -- 87,650 lbs total) up to 3,000
nautical miles.
