Default 06-07 rear differential, is it the same 4cyl and 6cyl?

looking at buying a parts vue to fix the wreck damage and rear end issue with my vue.

the parts car is a 4cyl AWD 06 model, will it have the same rear differential as my 06 model v6 AWD?

Mac,
I am 99% certain that there were no AWD 4 cylinder Vues made after the 04 model year with the CVT transmission. So if you are getting an 06 4 cylinder Vue, it will not have a rear drive module. However, I believe that ALL the RDMs were the same.

07 Vue V6 AWD LOADED!!! aka SUPER CRITTER!!! Sadly gone, and definitely missed.
08 Equinox Sport 3.6 6 spd auto, AWD, even more loaded. And the jury is still out on it.

Couple of things. First, the last year for the VTi AWD 4 cylinder Vue was 2005. The CVT was eliminated from the FWD automatic 4 cylinder models starting in 2005, replaced with 4 speed Hydromatic, but the VTi AWD remained available in 2005. 4 cylinder AWD Vue's were finally dropped from the lineup in the middle of the 2005 model year.

As far as the RDM's, the '02-'03 AWD V6 Vue, all 4 cylinder AWD Vues, as well as the '05-'06 Chevy Equinox and '06 Pontiac Torrent all use the same RDM (GM Part Number 19180874/19148873).

The RDM in the 3.5 V6 models is a different, more robust RDM. All '04-'07 Vue 3.5 V6 models use the same RDM (GM Part Number 19180875/15850855).

So if you are after a replacement RDM for '06 V6 AWD, the replacement RDM will need to come from another '04-'07 AWD V6 Vue with the 3.5.
