We've been noticing escalating horsepower figures across the board for the past few years. It seems while hybrid interest is rising so is the lust for more power. Dan Jedlicka over at the Chicago Sun-Times takes on the topic and compares a number of new models for 2005 and their boost in hp. Although he does incorrectly call the Ford Escape the Ford Explorer but we'll let it slide because we had forgotten the old Escape only had a 127-hp base engine! Criminal. Now it has a whopping 153-hp 4-cylinder.
