The MacPherson strut is a type of automotive suspension system that uses the top of a telescopic damper as the upper steering pivot.
A hybrid vehicle uses two or more distinct types of power, such as an internal combustion engine and an electric motor.
The designation of AWD is becoming narrowed, to apply to vehicles with drive train systems that have permanent drive and usually include a differential between the front and rear drive shafts.
Horsepower (hp) is a unit of measurement of power (the rate at which work is done).
Torque, moment, or moment of force is the tendency of a force to rotate an object about an axis, fulcrum, or pivot.
The inline-four engine or straight-four engine is a type of inline internal combustion four-cylinder engine with all four cylinders mounted in a straight line, or plane along the crankcase.
The Wankel engine is a type of internal combustion engine using an eccentric rotary design to convert pressure into rotating motion.
A reciprocating engine, also often known as a piston engine, is a heat engine (usually, although there are also pneumatic and hydraulicreciprocating engines) that uses one or more reciprocating pistons to convert pressure into a rotating motion.
A supercharger is an air compressor that increases the pressure or density of air supplied to an internal combustion engine. This gives each intake cycle of the engine more oxygen, letting it burn more fuel and do more work, thus increasing power.
A turbocharger, or turbo (colloquialism), from Greek "τύρβη" ("wake"), is a turbine-driven forced induction device that increases an internal combustion engine's efficiency and power output by forcing extra air into the combustion chamber.
