Becuase of their higher compression ratio diesel engines produce more torque than gas engines for a given displacement. Higher pressure in the cylinder and higher forces on the connecting rods and crankshaft require stronger, heavier components. Heavier rotating components prevent diesel engines from revving as high as gas engines. Diesel engines generally have similar power and inferior power to weight ratios.  This is compared to gas engines. Gas engines must be geared lower to get the same torque as a comparable diesel.   Because gas engines rev higher both will have similar acceleration. An arbitrary amount of torque at the wheels can be gained by gearing any power source down correctly.

A diesel engine with a constant 200 ft.lbs of torque and a 3000 rpm rev limit has just as much power  as another theoretical engine with a constant maximum 100 ft.lbs of torque and a 6000 rpm rev limit. A  2 to 1 reduction gear on the second engine will output a constant maximum 200 foot pounds of torque.  This is at a maximum of 3000 rpm.  This is with no change in power. Comparing diesel engines based on torque is just as useful as comparing them based on rpm.
