Quoted from Darcy:
Most new vehicles sold in Canada have block heaters installed during assembly. But not all of them as the block heater is an option. I didn't plug it in on Saturday. There are also heated battery blankets, electric interior heaters that one can get from most parts stores.
My buddy owns a GMC/Chev dealership, they used to come standard in Canada with block heaters, Now he has to make sure every vehicle is ordered with one.
I bought an '08 Enclave, a lady in Regina that owned a implement dealership had. I bought it on a -40 day, searched the engine compartment in the dark outside for an hour or two looking for the cable tied up cord, couldn't find the fucker, called the dealer I bought it from, he found the build sheet - no block heater ordered/installed. The lady never parked it inside a heated shop. I had the dealer install one on their dime.
