    I wonder if this technology results in relatively high torque? If so, it could be good for towing.

    It likely depends on the compression ratio. If I understand the engine dynamics, diesels get their torque from the compression, the higher latent energy of diesel fuel and because they typically use under-square bore-stroke ratios.
