How to interpret car specs

If you’re a novice when it comes to reading car specs, the tables above might be difficult to decipher. But we got you covered! To help you interpret the 2017 BMW M4 specs above, we’ve created this quick guide below to break it all down for you 
  • Base curb weight: This refers to
    the vehicle’s weight
    with only a full tank of gas and standard equipment. 
  • Dimensions: Car manufacturers measure all parts of the exterior and interior of the vehicle to give you perspective on how big or small the vehicle actually is. 
  • Drivetrain: Front-wheel drive (FWD) is usually the standard on most vehicles, but you’ll want to consider all-wheel drive (AWD) if you’re frequently driving in difficult road conditions or you’re planning on going off-roading in your vehicle. 
  • Engine displacement
    : This number is the measure of the volume of cylinders that your engine takes up.
  • Ground clearance: Also referred to as “ride height”, this is the measurement of the distance between the lowest part of the vehicle’s body and the ground below. 
  • Horsepower: This refers to the power of your engine—or a unit of power equal to 550 foot-pounds per second. 
  • Torque: While horsepower refers to raw power,
    torque is its rotational counterpart
    that informs you of how good your vehicle is at making your wheels spin. 
  • Turning diameter: This number concerns the radius of the smallest circle a vehicle can make in order to complete a full U-turn.

, I just put in a bit of information, and they found lots of different quotes for me. I was paying $305 a month for 2 brand-new cars, but now I’m paying $150 a month for both with full coverage!” —Robin U.
