    Thats a pretty common engine for Isuzu box trucks, we have a small fleet of them at work, I would caution against using a post 2010 model, there were engineering changes made and these engines seem to be more problematic than pre 2010 engines.
    Personal opinion only but the earlier engines do a good job of moving box trucks, they arent the fastest thing on the road but I believe in something like an S10 with decent gearing it would be a good choice for power and mileage.
