How Does Horsepower Affect Your Car?

Advertisements often tout that a particular vehicle has a certain horsepower that is higher than their competitor's similar vehicle. But what exactly is horsepower other than just a number we see on commercials? We here at Lithia Chrysler Jeep of Reno want to be sure that you understand exactly what you're paying for when you shop at our dealership.

Horsepower isn't exactly what it sounds like. While it is a unit of power, a 500 horsepower truck does not literally have the power of 500 horses. Vehicles with higher horsepower typically have greater acceleration than those with lower horsepower. Other characteristics of higher horsepower vehicles include, but are not limited to, greater towing capabilities. Those who frequently haul very heavy loads are more likely to require a truck with very high horsepower.

If you have any questions about horsepower or are looking for a vehicle with more horsepower, be sure to give us a call at our auto dealership in Reno, Nevada today!
