The invention relates to a connecting rod (1) for an internal combustion engine. The connecting rod (1) consists of a first portion (5a) and a second portion (5b) respectively associated with the head (2) and the foot (3), said portions sliding relative to each other along the longitudinal axis of the connecting rod (1) so as to form a variable-length connecting rod. The connecting rod (1) comprises an indexing device (9) of the first and second portions (5a, 5b) to ensure both of said portions are given a specific relative orientation. According to the invention, the indexing device (9) comprises a first element (9a) which is rigidly connected to the first portion (5a) and supported by the head of the connecting rod (2).
