The Isuzu V engine is a family of all-aluminum 75° V6 gasoline engines produced by Isuzu. They feature either a belt-driven SOHC or DOHC valvetrain. Later versions feature direct ignition as well as gasoline direct injection. These engines are notable for their early adoption of gasoline direct injection technology and also for their uncommon 75° cylinder head bank angle.
