Don't forget...in today's world, each engine/transmission combo must be certified for fuel economy and safety (crash tests). This costs the manufacturers more to offer a wide variety of engines in one platform, which is why we see models like the Dart with only 4 cyl engines available (and no 2.4 at launch), or small Jeeps with 2.0/2.4 only, etc. Trucks are more versatile as the different engines don't change the crash data that much, but small cars can make a big difference going from a 4 cyl to a V6 in the way that they crash.
