What Does Horsepower Actually Mean?

Horsepower is a term you have heard many times when watching car commercials. However how many of you really know what that means? What does it offer when you are buying a car.

Most car professionals will tell horsepower is a method how powerful the engine is on a car. The engine will produce kinetic energy and allow for fast acceleration. Horsepower is a measurement emulating the amount horses that would be pushing a car at full speed. It's the reason why you don't hear that term in minivan commercials. Minivans have a higher amount of momentum and it takes longer to reach a top speed. It also takes longer for them to come to a complete stop.
