Those are fog light. By being low to the road, they will cut through the fog without bouncing off of it blinding you.

Check your owners manual.
I have a 2014 with factory fogs but they are different.
There is a chance that the previous owner added the lights without the switch and wires.

You can't turn them on. If you go to your dealer they will unlock them for $2,199.

It might help the OP if he knows if his vehicle came from the factory with fog lights, or added later.
The info on GM Authority as of 3-25-16 shows the RPO code for factory fog lights for 2016/2017 is (T96).
If this code is on the sticker in your glove box, it came with factory fogs.

They may be fake fog lights that are standard on most LTs. Base models came with a black blankout panel. LTs for the vast majority of them came with what looks like fog lights but really are not. The easiest way to tell is to look at the lens. If it is completely clear, you will be able to see the bulbs. See the bulbs, you have fog lights. If there is what kinda looks like a plastic "grill" you will not see bulbs and therefore no fogs.
