Brake controller on Chevy P/U ?

Have a guy coming to buy my trailer and he has a brake controller but it is not hooked up . He drives an 06 Chevy pickup . Does anybody know if there is a plug under the dash on this year Chevy truck for a brake controller ? If so , what does it look like ? Just trying to keep the guy safe . Thanks in advance .

This article looks like it has the answer.

In the article it sounds like there might be some splicing needed, but on my Ford it was all plug-in and go if you got the right kit. The kit I purchased was made by Draw-Tite and they also had GM kits.

In past years Chevy and Ford have prewired the plug under the dash for full-sized trucks. U-haul, Draw-tite and other companies sell the connector so that you can wire it on to any brake controller and just plug it in under the dash. In

To make the brake controller function you need to add additional fuses and relays to the fuse box, which activates the power feeds to the 7 wire trailer connector in the back.
