The 2.6-liter Hyundai D4BB diesel engine was produced by the company from 1993 to 2004 and was installed not only on commercial vehicles, but also on the H1 minibus and the Galloper SUV. This motor was just one of the many clones of the famous Mitsubishi 4D56 diesel engine.

In the early 90s of the last century, Hyundai upgraded the D4BA engine by installing a crankshaft with a large piston stroke and its displacement increased from 2.5 to 2.6 liters. But in all other respects, it is still the same clone of the Mitsubishi 4D56 atmospheric pre-chamber diesel engine. By design, there is a cast-iron block, an aluminum 8-valve cylinder head without hydraulic lifters, a timing belt, a block of a pair of balancers and a distribution-type fuel pump from Zexel.

This diesel engine was most often offered in naturally aspirated versions without a turbine, but mentions of a supercharged version for commercial vehicles can be found.

This family also includes diesels: D4BA, D4BF and D4BH.

The engine was installed on:

  • Hyundai Galloper 2 (JK) in 1997 – 2003;
  • Hyundai Starex 1 (A1) in 1997 – 2004.
