Not Ferrari's fault that Americans put overpowered engines in pickup trucks. You don't need more than 150 PS in a pickup truck. Maybe only if you live in hilly area.

For offroad racing type car I get it. It has to be fast. But thats niche thing, low volume production. For normal workhorse pickup truck I want something:
A) Durable and reliable
B) Fuel efficient to offset the high wind drag and high weight
C) That can move the truck down the road at speed limit with little stress and effort
Which means moderately sized diesel engine.
All European commercial vehicles - vans, mini-vans etc, have small diesel engines. You don't need anything more.
American manufacturers didn't have diesel technology for longest time so they could only satisfy A and C and did it with large displacement V8 engines. But fuel efficiency was dreadful.

Also, you need lots of torque in a pickup, and diesel engines have that.
FastestLaps 4m ago @benedekpuskas
That is implied by C. "little stress & effort" = low rpms = high torque.
Americans achieved this by simply resorting to big displacement gasoline engines (V8 etc), Europeans by long stroke compression ignition engines with turbochargers. Which are still small displacement and high efficiency due to diesel fuel energy density, lower friction etc.
