I feel a little dumb for asking.
I agree that the lights appear to be fog lamps, but on my LT, they are merely signal/flashers.

Look closely and you will see the amber bulb on the bottom, but there is no lens above that bulb.

Paid a lot of money and there are items that are standard on other make cars which are not on the Chevy unless you upgrade with lots more money involved.
I've got a 2019 and Chevy didn't learn a thing! Same stupid set up. And, I just saw a review of the 2021 Equinox.... and guess what! same stupid ****... no fog lights without huge upgrade and the interior has NOT be redesigned at all! Chevy has become a big disappointment!

Just another reason I felt the Acadia was a better buy at < $31K with incentives.

The 2019 SLT-1 came with fog lights and as much or more than our previous Equinox LTZ.

And near the same MPG as the 2.0L turbo and needs no premium fuel. In fact . . the same or better MPG on highway driving.

but. .. understand the needs/wants of others.

2019 GMC Acadia SLT-1 3.6L LGX V6 - Build Date: 4-11-2019 - Bought 6-22-2019

SOLD - - 2015 Equinox LTZ 3.6L FWD Champagne Silver Metallic *Build Date 1-08-2015 *

SOLD with *38,865 miles 8-15-2019.
