It's the connection for your block heater. It keeps your engine warm so it's easier to start in cold weather.

As noted, block heater plug. I'd plug it in for temps under ~32, but only if you plan to start the engine the next day, no need to waste power if you're not going to need to start the engine. Typically takes about 3-4 hours from stone cold to pre-heated engine.
