Our Staff Members are Here to Break Down the Meaning of Horsepower

If you've ever wondered where the term horsepower came from or why it is used to describe how powerful a vehicle is, it came from James Watt. James Watt decided to compare the power of ponies working in the coal mine to his steam engines. The term stuck and has been used since the 1800s to describe just how powerful a vehicle is. Horsepower can be used to tell you just how powerful your other machines are as well such as your lawn mower.

One horsepower is about the same as a horse pulling 33 pounds for one minute. that is how the term horsepower has become known to describe the power in your vehicle today. The more horsepower, the more power's behind your vehicle.

Come see us here at Tim Short Ford of Morehead to take one of our powerful vehicles out for a test drive today and feel the power to yourself.
