What is Torque vs HP?

Torque is simply a force acting on something from a distance (i.e. a piston pushing down on a crankshaft, using that leverage to rotate it), while horsepower is torque multiplied by RPM, or a measurement of how quickly an engine can accomplish a certain amount of work.

What makes a car faster torque or horsepower?

Torque multiplied by rpm returns horsepower. Basically, the faster the crankshaft spins with the same amount of force, the more power an engine will make. A car with more hp than torque will always be quicker since this gives a car acceleration and speed.

Why do diesels have more torque?

In a diesel engine, stroke length (2 or 4) and cylinder pressure are the main factors that increase torque. Their lean air-to-fuel ratio also helps diesel fuel go longer and add extra torque. Diesel fuel also has more energy per gallon than gasoline, which makes diesel fuel more efficient for combustion and torque.
