This is excellent information for some years VINs but not all inclusive of all years. Does anybody have a similar breakdown of VINs for more recent years? I looked on the internet for hours with no luck. http://www.pronto-net.com/vin_app/vin.php works but doesn't give you a digit by digit breakdown. Thanks!

im not so sure this is correct because there were several special series of these vehicles that are not even noticed thru this system. Heritage editions and s series and such. the Vins on these vehcles basically show up as normal 5.7 ltrs
