What is the difference between torque and BHP? Will more torque at lesser RPM mean more pickup? What does pickup depend on?

Thanks Mohit. So as i understand, in simple english, torque is the power whereas BHP is the stamina. So good pickup depends on high torque at lower RPM??

Torque is the prime driving force that is produced by the engine and in its units of measurement, there is no 'time factor'. It's the Torque, therefore, that's transmitted to a Vehicle's drive wheels via its Gearbox. Further, it's capable of being 'multiplied' by its Gearbox Ratios. torque is the turning force exerted hence for max acceleration you need max torque (thats why some people change gear ratios etc) and its this that throws you back into your seat. You cant have BHP without torque and vice versa, but bhp doesnt measure a force it measures the "energy output per unit time" the engine is producing.
