I dont think you will be able to tell. Here is how to decode the VIN

Make/Model: (Digits 1-3) This breaks out the vehicle's make, model, and manufacturer.
Vehicle Features: (Digits 4-8) These digits identify the various features of the specific model — trim specifications, driveline options, etc.
Verifying #: (Digit 9) Determined through a complex mathematical formula that relates to the other numbers in the VIN; used to verify that the VIN itself is not fake.
Model Year: (Digit 10) Represents the vehicle's model year, which is not to be confused with the year it was sold or delivered.
Assembly Plant: (Digit 11) An internal digit that shows where the car was built.
Sequence Of Model Production: (Digit 12-17) These digits indicate the order in which the vehicle left the assembly line. This is effectively the serial number.

thanks. Here's what I've got:

VIN: 2BVEKSM158Vxxxxxx
2 Canada
B Bombardier
V (vehicle type or manufacturing division)
E Outlander
KSM1 (model details)
5 check digit
8 2008
V (assembly plant)
xxxxxx SN

it’s those 5-8th digits, KSM1, I was trying to figure out. I believe they code for color and engine size (and others?).
From other sources I’ve figured out this is a 400. Maybe it’s the K?
