New 3.5L Engine

I read that the European version of the new 3.5L engine has the stop/start feature.

How does this work? Does the engine stop in its entirety at traffic or red light? Why do they disable this feature in North America engines?

I'm not familiar with this engine specifically but the stop/start feature does mean the engine is turned off when you stop (within some restrictions like engine temperature, ambient temperature etc.).

At least the S-class diesel that I've tried, had a special alternator that was able to start the car. The car just starts going immediately without any starter motor noise when you leave traffic lights.
