Torque may indicate behavior, but not performance. It's overuse as a metric of comparison is what annoys me. I've seen article after article of puzzled auto journalists wondering why their vehicle is so slow despite being able to "feel the torque!".Ican make 1000 ft-lbs of torque, but I doubt many people would want me in their engine bay. My guess is that when a new HD powertrain is developed, a trade study is commissioned. This study could analyze the actual required performance vs required marketing output. The appropriate levers to tweak become the engine geometry itself. Need more torque? Upsize the stroke, or perhaps downsize the turbine wheel and trade some power out on the topside. If the engine was a black box, and I said I had one that made 1000 ft-lbs of torque, and one that made 2000 ft-lbs of torque, are those engines any different? Or did I just slap a 2:1 gear reducer on the back of one of the two identical engines? Which is the better choice?

Well, seeing as how torque on a diesel is rated at the flywheel, the above seems moot.
