Because the US likes to hang on to out dated systems of measurement. Mechanics other places have half as many sockets and wrenches because everything is Metric.

That said, I haven't found a single Imperial bolt on my truck, nor any Ford from the 90's on up. Likely because Ford's sold everywhere else are 100% metric
