Default Tow Hooks Installation for 2016

Are there threaded receptacles to install Tow Hooks already there behind the front grill and the rear bumper on a 2016 base Stingray?

All z51 and z06 have them from 2015 and on 2014 z51 didn't have the front. Base model don't have the front I had to get the parts from ZL1 that sales the tow hooks & I put it in the front. THEY ALSO SALE THE PIECE THAT IS NEEDED TO DRILL A HOLE OUT THEN YOU ONLY HAVE TO PUT A NUT WITH A WASHER ON BOTH SIDES OF THE FRONT BUMPER BRACE TO HOLD THIS IN PLACE... Robert

My 17 Stingray Z51 the front is threaded. I have not pulled the rear cover to check that one due to fear of scratching the car.
