    The closest motor to fit the OP is the Isuzu 3.0 4JH. If you could swap out the fuel pump to mechanical, you would have a winner.

    It must be economical.
    Parts must be easy to source.
    I must have enough power to overtake a vehicle going 110kph safely.
    It must be available in a workhorse, meaning that although BM and Merc make GREAT diesel motors, they dont qualify for this.
    It must be diesel.

    What would you guys say? It must be currently available.
    Lots of engine would tick some of the boxes(like the 1HZ, but it loses out on power and economy.

    Shoot...

    I will vote for the Isuzu 250 with the new 2.4 Toyota as a possible.

    The old Hilux 2.4D engine also gave good km.

    The oldest diesel engine on the market currently is the old Isuzu 2.5 diesel. 58kw of pure horse racing power.
    My dad bought an Isuzu in 1989 with this engine and this year he bought one again. 31 one years later, same engine. Unfortunately this engine wont meet the criteria. Its almost impossible to pass something with it. Although a good motor, its a frustration on the road.
    When people are refering to the Isuzu 2.5, then surely its the commonrail 100kw 4JK motor and not the donkey 58kw?

    It certainly is a record of some sorts. 31+ years on a market fir a motor.

    Yes I would say the Isuzu 250 (100kw) version is awesome.

    Not the 58kw donkey although its very reliable. Heard of a guy down here in the Cape complaining he can't get his 58kw donkey over 100km/h when the south east wind blows.

    I run a fleet of 50+ Isuzu 250 D-Max single cabs. This is 100kw version. They are economical and strong. Easily achieve 350 000km before requiring overhaul. We blank the EGT valve off; it prolongs engine life.

    I own a Hilux and will never change to another vehicle, but for a commercial application - nothing beats the 250 D-Max engine.
