There was something special about diesel-powered trucks at the time? Look at the badge on grille.

The only thing about the Diesel-engines of the trucks, Wikipedia is mentioning ( http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borgward ), is the fact, that Borgward has produced them theirself.
One of the reasons, why the company smashed into the bankrupcy. It's just too expensive, to produce all items by yourself, especially when it's a not really big, just family-owned company and not a global player.

I mean: back in the days diesel engine was such a big deal, that it was mentioned in badges?

Yes. In the 50ies Mercedes Benz was the only German company, which had offered Diesel-engines for passengers cars, except a few Hansa 1800 Diesel, made by Borgward. Also Vans had no Diesel-engines back then (except Benzes), neither the VW T1, the Ford FK 1000, the Opel Blitz or the competitors.

In the 60ies, since Borgward disappeared, Mercedes stayed alone with Diesel-cars on the German market (plus Peugeot), until Opel has released the Diesel-version of the Rekord D (1972?). VW started in 1976 with the Golf D, one year later came the Passat D and the Audi 80 D.
The first Diesel-engine for a VW "Bulli" came in 1981, for the T3. The first Diesel-BMW was the 524td in 1983 (whose engine was mounted in the 2.4 liter Opels, too.

Here a later big Diesel-badge: /vehicle.php?id=403949 (though only for the US market).

@Nightrider: Yes, I think it was still quite something rare to have a diesel engine, even in a big truck. In Holland many trucks were adapted with a Kromhout diesel engine, in France Panhard was well known for its diesel engines, in GB theer were some Perins engined trucks (and some otheres, but for sure not all trucks); though in Germany diesel engines for trucks will have been a bit more common: Krupp, Magirus-Deutz, Borgward and Mercedes-Benz, to name just the best known...
