I wonder why you get black smoke?
Is it because you accelerate hard when the revs are too low and there is no turbo boost at that time to provide sufficient air in the cylinders? The turbo takes time to spin up to speed.
The ECU should largely prevent that, depending on the fuel map in the ECU.ie, not dump fuel in, unless there is sufficient air in there.
Is the aircleaner dirty/restricted a little?
If the turbo is actually providing some boost, it already is spinning fast and so hard acceleration after than shouldn't make smoke. It isn't a D40 Navara!
I have a 2011 and purposely look to see if there is smoke under same circumstances. Heat haze and slight discolouration in exhaust but never see smoke.

Mine blows a cloud of smoke say when I'm cruising at 1500rpm and give it a boot full to merge into traffic.
It's always done it, even from new.
I see Navaras as you say and even late model Audi and Mercs blowing a cloud just like me.
No blocked aircleaners or anything. It's not like it's blowing enough to coat the tailgate, I never wash off diesel soot.

Whoops, jinxed myself. Did the 100K service and found the rear main seal just strating to go and the rear transfer seal gone. Bugger! Oh well, took it to the nearest dealer this morning and both getting fixed under warranty.

Just for everyone’s info, vehicle only serviced once by dealer, all other times by independent mechanic. Vehicle has a mild lift and aftermarket suspension.

The rear main seal is one of the very well known issues and everyone should get under their car and check no matter how old it is. Mine was changed when the gearbox was removed as a precaution (it wasn't leaking at the time).

Yep, dealer service manager said they have fixed heaps. Apparently the “factory robot” missed one spot of sealant. For anybody getting it done, I’ve been told it is an overnight job to fix correctly as the sealant needs to cure.

Rear main seal on engine, between engine and transmission. About 5 hours labour plus parts.

Rear transfer case seal is a $12 part and about half an hour labour.

Look under the car right where the engine and transmission meet (bellhousing) if there is any evidence of oil there show Isuzu asap especially those who are coming to the end of their warranty period and don't take no for an answer.
