What is Horsepower?

We have all heard the term horsepower when relating to vehicles, and while most of us know that horsepower refers to the power of a vehicle, that's about where our understanding stops. Even your most avid car enthusiasts don't quite understand it. Let Bryan Chrysler Jeep Dodge help you understand this term better and its historical origin.

Horsepower is a measure of power that began all the way back in the 18th century when steam engines were created. The horsepower number has always been designed as a way to brag about the power of a vehicle. It's just that the types of vehicles available over the years has changed. Now, when you're shopping for a vehicle, you can use horsepower statistics to determine if a vehicle is going to get you where you need to go in a short enough amount of time and also be able to tow any additional weight that you have.
