In the United States it was used also in the a Volvo 260 variant. As such, the Volvo 260 with a B28F can generally be used as a cross reference for the DeLorean's engine.

A 3 liter version of this engine was used in the 1987-1992 Eagle Premier, Dodge Monaco, and Renault 21[1]. The Wikipedia article on the PRV engine has a complete list of all vehicles that use the PRV.
