2016 Rav4 LE DRL led lights?

Hello. I am new on the forums and i have a question about the led DRL. I just purcased a 16 Rav4 LE and i was looking at the head lights and it looks like the LED strip is there but nothing lights up. Are the headlights just missing the led bulbs or does the LE just not have the DRL as an option. I recently watched a video from Toyota and it said all trims get the led DRL. I really like the look and just curious if they have them. The video also said there is led lighting just above the eco and sport mode buttons to help you see them better but after checking that area i didnt see anything. Any input will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

This question has been asked to death ever since the 2013 came out. Short answer is NO, there are no LED's in that empty space in N. America, and no easy way to install them:

No LED DLR in 2013 RAV4

The reason i ask i because led DRL were not available until the 2016s. I can see the strip where the leds go but im not sure if its possible to add the led bulbs. Just thought i would ask because the headlights are different then the 13-15 headlights. Thaks for the references.

I see the same strip on my 2015 LE,wished they were real. Noticed the grill between the headlights is a fake seems a bit silly.

My wife just bought a 2016 XLE and I could have sworn when we looked at one at the dealership in Dec it had the led drl but the one she just bought which is identical in color, trim level and options we can't figure out how to get them to come on. Any input is greatly appreciated.

To check if you have DRL on your rav, look at the stalk on your headlight/ signal switch if it has DRL OFF switch (my 2016 SE has DRL). Another thing you can check is by starting your car with all the lights switched off and check in front if the LED strip above your high/low beams is on.

There's a drl spot on the stalk but we tried everything to get them to come on but only the projector lights up.

Apparently the XLE model gets halogen DRL not LED. Guess spending $29k isn't enough to get you upgraded DRL.
