What Does Horsepower Mean?

When people go to look for a new car, there are lots of features that people look for. For example, one of the more popular options is the rearview camera or even the parallel parking feature. However, what is still one of the popular ones is horsepower. In layman's terms, horsepower is the term used to describe the power of the vehicle.

Now horsepower is really important for people buying trucks and SUV's. Of course, the bigger the horsepower, the better, the smaller, the worse. What people do not know is the origins of the word. It was actually started in the 18th century by James Watt to describe the power of his steam engines.
