Auto makers market horsepower figures for consumers exactly like you. Carroll Shelby said this many years ago: "Horsepower sells cars, but torque wins races." The average consumer continues to only look at horsepower, and ignores the more important torque number.

Go ahead and buy the Camaro V6 - it's a fresh car, a good deal and you get a lot of bang for your buck. Just don't try beating a Mustang GT with it, because you'll fail.
