Default 4-cylinder eco tech on 2009 Vue; timing belt or timing chain?

Does the 4-cylinder Eco Tech engine in a 2009 Vue have a timing belt or a timing chain? If it's a chain, how long would it take a good shop to replace. And how much might it cost?

I've had four older Vues with the 4-cylinder engine and they were bullet-proof. Why would the timing chain break on this newer model?
...

Is it not an interference engine? I would assume the valves are all smashed into the pistons if the timing broke.

I've only done five but I haven't found a broken piston. Valves bent Yes, but not all of them. And my rebuilder believes the guides need to be carefully looked at. He believes the Ecotek is notorious for them.
