I guessed that was a mistake, lol.....those things usually have higher outputs...they're diesel too, I believe!

Edit: I've just read the artical, apparently there's no mistake, lol. However, there's no mention of torque, which is what that engine is built for!

After googling it, the Ford F150 with 300hp and 300lb-ft of torque can tow up to 16,000 lbs, but the Unimog, with the right hitch tows 45,000lbs...I call shenanigans on you and your British technological magic lol.
