Get More Horsepower for More Power

When shopping around for a vehicle, people normally want to know how much horsepower is under the hood. So, what exactly is a measure of horsepower? One horsepower is the same as a pony hauling 33 pounds for one minute.

This came to be because of James Watt in the 1800s. He wanted to come up with a way to measure just how much power was behind his steam engines. He saw the power behind the ponies at the mines that were hauling coal and the term horsepower was adapted and is still used today. The more power that a vehicle has the more it will do so pay attention to its horsepower.
