My car is going 50 mph at 2000 rpm. 4 speed auto, in top gear w/locked converter of course.

I'm surprised how short the gearing is in some small cars, like Neil's xA for instance.

As for peak torque, my engine's peak torque is listed as 125 lb/ft at 3750 rpm. I know from experience it takes very aggressive acceleration to reach this rpm. I also know that this engine (single cam 2 liter 4 cylinder) feels pretty responsive at lower rpms compared to some other small cars.
