Incandescent bulbs have been used in cars for many decades, but in the last few years manufacturers have been slowly moving towards LED technology. Light emitting diodes (LEDs) are found in everything from watches to computers. Recently they’ve started replacing traditional bulbs in newer vehicles. Why? For a few reasons; they are brighter, draw less current, and light up faster than incandescent bulbs. Best of all, since they don’t have a filament to burn out, they last a whole lot longer and don’t get especially hot. With people driving faster and jabbering on their cell phones, you want to make sure they notice when you hit the brakes. Upgrading your taillights to a brighter LED system is one way to snap them out of their stupor and get their attention. But the change to LEDs has been gradual, and so far only the high-end rides have been given the LED treatment. While we consider the new Camaro to be in the high-end category, GM decided to ship their LEDs to the factory that makes Cadillacs. Lucky for us the aftermarket has stepped in to give the new Camaro taillights as cool as the rest of the car.
