Hi all, new to this forum, any forum for that matter. I was not sure how to search....sorry

I Just got home with my 2017 XT5 and I can not locate the block heater cord, looked around the battery area and around front of XT5 and no luck, I assumed they all have block heaters in Canada, Any ideas where the plug in would be ? Do they all have block heaters ?

Thank you, Mike

Not a guarantee. It's an option the dealer much check off when ordering even in Canada. According to the user manual the bundle of cord and plug is supposed to be just in front of the battery box.

Mine is a 2021 and they've changed it to a receptacle behind a panel hidden in the lower grill w/ separate/loose cord. RV power connection style.

Thanks Max. You are correct, it does not have a block heater...Unreal, no spare and no block heater, how disappointing, can't assume that you get basics with luxury car.

Would all depend on where the vehicle was originally ordered for. I highly doubt vehicles bought for Vancouver come with block heaters. Then if it gets moved or resold...

FYI the new Escalade 6.2L V8 doesn't come with a block heater and cannot even be ordered. Block heater only available for the optional 3.0L diesel. Go figure.

Maybe check with dealer if one can be added.
