    Default 1997 GMC W4 truck

    I found this truck for sale and he says it has a 4.9L Isuzu in it. Did GMC offer something different? The NPR's did not have a 4.9L in that year. I have spent hours and hours trying to find one of these engines for my jeep. This is such a great site. Thanks in advance.

    Unfarmiliar with a 4.9 Turbo Diesel Isuzu.

    AFAIK the W4 GMC, W4000 Chevy, and the NPR are all the same truck for a given year, just 'badge engineering', some might have different options than others depending on how they were 'ordered'.

    As I understand it there are GMC/Chevy equivalents for allmost all the N&F series Isuzus (same difference, just the badges, I've even seen some at various West Coast port terminals with no badges on them yet).

    Deviant that's keeping the NPR (with the engine).

    That is what I thought too. It has a rebuilt trans and he is asking 3k for it. I think I will go look at it. Thanks

    It probably was a typo as the two choises were 3.9 liter diesel or 5.7 liter gasoline.
