Horsepower is a term that has stuck around since the 18th century. This term is a unit of measure that helps describe the power of an engine. When the term was originally coined, it was one to help people understand the power of a steam engine. Since that day the term has stuck around. Engines have changed a lot since the 18th century, but the measurement has remained the same.

So how much horsepower do you need? Well, that depends on your driving habits, style of driving, and your daily commute. All that power can come at a price. The more horsepower you have, the fewer miles per gallon you will get. If you commonly excessive mileage, a high horsepower vehicle may not be right for you. The same is true if you only drive a few miles to and from work.
