Depends on the displacement and RPM range too. When the Ford F-350 was phased out in Brazil on late 2011, it had a 3.9L engine with 120hp, and a higher torque peaking at a lower RPM than the 163hp 2.8L engine which was fitted to it from 2014 to 2019.

It's also worth to take a look at a 1.0L car engine and a motorcycle engine within the same displacement range. Even though the specific torque might be the same, the higher peak torque RPM might lead to the motorcycle engine be perceived as if it had a higher torque if geared lower enough to match the speed on the transmission output.
