But all of these measurements are about how well you can get your vehicle to perform from that measurement.
The displacement numbers were always an exact measurement, that the customer could just calculate on his own, and fudging doesn't work well.
Although Ford did fudge the 5.0 liter displacement, which actually calculates to 4.9 liters.
But displacement in itself doesn't really tell you the performance.
and "horsepower" was always silly, since harnessing 200, or even 400 horses to your vehicle will never even get you up to highway speed.
Torque is the best number to describe the potential performance of a vehicle's drivetrain.
But horsepower and torque are not very "specific" measurements, in that you can get different measurements depending on how you measure it (at the motor, at the driveshaft, at the wheel, etc).
Not to mention outright lying, which has gone on forever in the biz.
At least GM tried to implement a standard, and utilize an SAE standard definition and measuring setup for horsepower in the last decade.
That having been said, the only real flaw in GM's idea is the rounding up to the nearest hundred.
You've got 3 digits, use them to get something at least remotely close to what you measured.
