2.0 Ecoboost engine camshaft operation

Does anyone know whether this engine uses belts or chains for the camshafts? I saw a reference in the owner's manual to changing the timing belt for the 1.6 engine, but I didn't see any reference one way or the other for the 2.0. Also, is the valvetrain an "interference" design vis-a-vis the pistons, or not?

I believe that is what I've read as well. One of the reasons the 2.0L is better. Less maintenance.
