Cars that were named after Horses

David Sanderson Around the World

It’s no surprise that some of the great pioneers of automobiles in the US had a great appreciation for horses. In fact, some cars were named after these majestic animals! Ever wonder why they call it “horsepower”? One of these cars is still in production today. We’d be willing to bet that you can guess which one that is.

So here they are:

Ford Bronco 1966 to 1996

Dodge Colt 1970-1994

Ford Pinto 1971–1980

Ford Mustang 1964 – Present
