Drivers side near air cleaner box. Has smart plug on it so a bit different looking to what you may be used to.

Good luck

Probably cold climate package. Snow plow attachment?

I think it has to do with it's delivery location. Ones going to Cal or TX. AZ etc etc I dont think so but for the colder climes I believe they are just on there.
Can't find a car around these parts that does not have either a block heater or now the newer ones have oil pan heaters on them.
I bet this one delivered to AK would have one.

When i went to dealers asking about new cars they said "none of the cars come with factory installed block heater, they are usually installed by dealer prior to delivery to customer".
So make sure your dealer actually put it in, they might have just forgotten to do so.

If the RPO code K05 is on the spid sticker then the factory did infact install a block heater. Not to say that it was'nt installed after the fact. The factory heater has a energy power saving cord that turns the power on to the block heater after the outside temp is 0 f or -18c if it's pluged in to 120vac.

The moral of this story? Don't EVER rely on the dealer for information. 9x out of 10, they don't know so they make something up.
