Draining radiator

I have an 05 xlr. Trying to drain the rad. but can't locate rad drain plug. I have been under there twice but can't locate it. Is there a shroud or anything to remove to get access, or maybe the 05's didn't have drain plugs?
Can anyone help?
Thanks
Larry

My 2004 has a drain plug on the radiator, easy to see from underneath. It is on the rear side bottom and is in what I think of as the 'usual GM position' though it drains rearward, others I have seen drain downward.

I'm sure you know this, but be sure to capture the fluid and take to an auto parts store for recycling. My father-in-law, he just lets in drain into the driveway, and I wince every time he does this...

Yes thanks for the warning. Definately won't go down the drain.
Also, found the drain plug OK and got the job done.
