Default 2010 Equator almost to 100K. Question about timing belt?

My Equator is about to flip over 100K, and it's running great and I want to keep it that way. Couple of questions for those that are more knowledgable- does this truck have a timing belt or a chain? Is the engine an interference type or non-interference? I assume it has a chain. Should I go ahead and change the chain or run it till it breaks? I do regular oil changes every 5-7K. If there's any other maintenance that anyone would recommend at 100K I'd like to hear from you. Thanks, all!

Looking at the parts list both the 2.5L straight 4 cylinder and the 4.0L V6 use chains. Normally if the vehicle is serviced regularly these will last out the rest of it. I'm not familiar with these engines though so other opinions welcome. Your normally hear when they are worn or it may throw up a fault code on the V6.

Not that we don't want you here , but as I understand it the equator is a re-badged Nissan and assume it uses Nissan engines. You may get better help somewhere like here timing chain renewal? - Nissan-Navara.net
