bigpoppanils Posted September 1 Report Share Posted September 1 there is a massive power war being waged by manufacturers these days. 5 years ago it was very rare to see engines producing over 400hp/lb-ft torque. Now it seems commonplace in the luxury segment. VW, Ford, BMW, DaimlerChrysler, GM, etc. are all hopping on board.hell....in the family car segment it looks like 300hp will become the norm if this keeps up.is it me, or are many manufacturers going overboard with the power war?in many cars it just seems like overkill....and the added power also adds weight in most cases. now it seems the industry has reached a point where a 50hp increase in power does little for actual performance.does the normal driver really need 400hp to commute to work or go grocery shopping?will the power war ever end?
