Yep. Because of the higher loads on C&C, compared to pickups, engines are detuned slightly for sake of longevity of power train. Like most diesel engines there are automotive and industrial ratings. Higher continous loads results in lower power ratings compared to automotive loads which usually are cyclical in there loads.
