If you have ever shopped for a new vehicle, you have probably heard a sales consultant mention a vehicle's horsepower and torque. You may have a vague idea of what those terms mean, but do you really know the advantages of these specs? Even if you don't, the team at Lithia Motors Inc is here to tell you why they are important. In short, the more horsepower you have, the faster your car will drive. Torque is a measurement of your vehicle's ability to do the work.

When a vehicle you are considering has higher horsepower, it will usually have a higher top speed than a vehicle that has a lower horsepower. A car, truck, or SUV with higher torque can access more horsepower at lower speeds. If you have any other questions about these specs, or any others, please feel free to contact a sales consultant at a Lithia Motors Inc dealership location today.
