I was looking at my window sticker to check on my headlights. I happened to see it states LED fog lamps and LED tail lamps. Mine is a 2018. Did they put LED bulbs in the 18's? Or are they referring to the decorative light that goes around the tail lights?
A little research and I answered my own question. The decorative ring IS the LED tail light. The bulb is a bright, single filament bulb.

OK. Thanks for this.
Now I have to look where I can get this here in Germany!

|Josef15111||To replace your front turns it is very easy. Remove the front black cover that covers your radiator. There are some push tabs that just need to be lifted with a flat head screw driver and pulled out. You will want to remove them all and take the cover off. Then you can look down at your head light and see where the turn signal bulb is located. Reach down turn to release the bulb. Remove the old bulb replace with the led and replace. I have a few pics. If the pics aren't good enough just let me know and when my wife gets home tomorrow I will make a video on how to replace all the bulbs to led. So that way everyone will have a easy way to do there conversion.|

|gory||Bump. I want to replace the bulbs, but not if it's going to mean they're going to be blinking at some irritating rate or having warnings coming up. Thanks!|

Awesome! I used your vid. Now the brake lights look modern. Not that I can see them, and only people that it would impress is someone noticing how it turns off/on when I use my turn signals. lol.
Ok, crap. Wife comes home and tells me there's a warning about a blinker or something being out, and that the speed of the turn signal is 2x faster. So I go to the van and turn on the blinker. Yup. Click-click-click is about 2x faster. The front blinkers (Bulb) are flashing at normal speed, the rear are flashing at normal speed (LEDs). The LED on the mirrors are 2x faster... I turn on the hazard lights. Speed goes to normal. And all lights flashing as it should.
Any easy way of fixing that? I would leave it as everything is on and working, but that warning she gets on the screen will keep bugging her. BTW, I didn't see it. Is it something I can clear or does the warning stay on the screen?
I heard people saying installing some sort of resistor? Do I need them on every location I have a LED bulb? Sounds like that could be expensive? And I went with the Sylvania LEDs because stock is Sylvania bulbs and the website said it works well with low resistance so not to have the high speed flashing /warning.

Thanks! That was the easiest replacement out of all the ones I've done so far
