Read Isuzu Faster/Chevy LUV model history on Wikipedia:

"North America: The United States continued to receive the Faster under the 'Chevrolet LUV' name for the second generation, introduced in 1980 for the 1981 model year. ...The LUV was now available with an Isuzu C223 diesel engine making 58 hp (43 kW) at 4,300 RPM and 93 lb•ft (126 N•m) at 2,200 RPM. This new engine gave the rear-wheel drive diesel LUV a fuel economy rating of 33 MPG US (7.1 L/100 km) city / 44 MPG US (5.3 L/100 km) highway."

"After the 1982 model year, General Motors stopped selling the Chevrolet LUV in the United States in favor of their own S-10 compact pickup, but Isuzu picked up sales in the US that same year under the name 'Isuzu P'up' (short for 'pickup'). The US market received the same engines as before; either a 80 hp (60 kW) 1.8-liter gasoline inline-four (G180Z) or a 2.2-liter diesel version with 58 hp (43 kW) (C223). Four-wheel drive was only available in short wheelbase form,[18] though some 4wd long-wheelbase diesels are known to exist, possibly dealer-installed or aftermarket conversions. Because of shared technology with GM and Isuzu, the diesel was offered with the LUV's replacement until 1985."
