Settle on the Right Amount of Horsepower for Your Needs

What is horsepower? When car shopping it’s a good idea to learn the lingo. Horsepower will often be used when describing vehicles, and the stickers in the window might have horsepower ratings. But what is it?

The term horsepower was created in late 1700’s or early 1800’s. Way back then, one horse could pull 330 pounds of coal out of a mine, up to a 100-foot-tall tunnel all in one minute, so horsepower literally means the horse’s power. Basically, a unit of measurement. In the 1970’s the Society of Automotive Engineers, or SAE, standardized the horsepower testing protocol for cars, so all vehicles can be measured more consistently against each other to determine how much, or little, horsepower they have.
