I think this is respecible numbers.
They sure are, especially the torque figure combined with the fuel economy one. Diesels are another thing we don't get here for the most part either. I think that's because our gasoline has always been cheap and the fact that hardly any Americans think about CO2 emissions because it's not taxed here.
