Americans addiction to the V8 and low-end torque begun when automatics were nearly science-fiction, as it would allow the driver to keep the high gear all the time if there is not any hill on the way... And it applied to engines with fewer cylinders too, such as the Chrysler flathead-six and the Chevrolet OHV straight-6 from the 3rd and 4th generations.
