Default Newbie with a Question about a 2005 Ranger XLT

Hello there! I have a 2005 Ford Ranger XLT with the 2.3L 4cyl engine and i was wondering if my truck engine has a timing belt or chain and if it is a interference or non-interference engine. I tried looking up that information and nothing comes up on google.

Dual overhead cams with a timing chain. Would think it is an interference engine, but not sure.

I believe they are non-interfering engines, but I'm sure somebody who has more knowledge will let you know for sure.

The newer 2.3 like yours are chain driven and are non-interfering
(86-88 and diesel 2.3 are belt driven)
