New­ton vs Watt

The Witness - Wheels - - MOTORING -

New­tons ba­si­cally show the size of an to en­gine’s mus­cles when it comes to heavy lift­ing. Watts tell you how fit - or well en­gi­neered - the en­gine is to do all that heavy lift­ing fast with­out tear­ing a mus­cle. The strong­est bakkie in Sa, the 3,2-litre Ford Ranger , makes 470 Nm, and any­thing less than 300 Nm is be­low par in the world of dou­ble cabs. For a smooth ride, the Hilux 4,0 V6 Raised Body Raider auto of­fers 174 kW, which is quite fir, for a bakkie.
