2.0 liter SOHC L4. --- 2.6 liter SOHC L4. These were they stock engines for your model. Either will fit.

there is also the rare diesel I4 and the 3.0L V6. the 2.0 was used in automatic applications only, the 2.6 was used in auto or manual. i know a guy who took a 3.8 LA (like a magnum but a little different) and stuck it in. you can cut up the floor boards and shoe horn in a 318 or some small block, one guy i know had a beat up peice of junk 82 long bed he stuck a ford 302 out a mustang into it. it all depends on what you want to do with it. pull a trailer, pull a house down, pull your church down, shoot rooster tails in the mud, get 25 mpg, be the next hoodrat, or whatever. there are endless possibilities.

Here is what i found that will bolt to a KM145: The motors offered in these trucks are the 4G52 2.0L SOHC 8V, 4G53 2.4L SOHC 8V, 4G54 2.6L SOHC 8V, 4D55 2.3L SOHC 8V TD04 wastegated intercooled turbocharged, and the 6G72 3.0L V6.
