Recently I have been researching torque and horsepower. I know that the lower the car gear, the more the torque. However, whenever I see specifications of a car, it says : X lb-ft of torque at Y rpm. Now, shouldn't they specify the gear that was measured in? Or is this the torque the engine makes, measured before the gearbox? I am a little confused, I would be happy if you could help me with some explanations. Thank you!
