You mean the 3.0 V6 EcoDiesel? Well, there are other examples of some random "old" engine design being slightly updated to some newer emissions standard. Another example from FCA is the Sofim engine fitted to the Fiat Ducato and briefly the RAM ProMaster, and also fitted to the Mitsubishi Fuso Canter.

Most isuzu branded vehicles I have seen are box trucks diesel powered
Regarding trucks, only a handful of the ones I've seen weren't rebadged as GMC. Those older ones had rock-solid engines, even though the lack of electronics by the time most of them were made could be accountable for such resilience to somewhat extreme conditions and neglect, plus the fact that much of the old-school Jap trucks were mostly naturally-aspirated.
