Declaring “more and more people are finding themselves in a Chevy for the first time,” Chevrolet leads iSpot.tv’s latest ranking of the most-viewed automotive commercials – the ads that have racked up the most impressions across national broadcast and cable TV airings.
The No.1 ad for the week of Sept. 3 touts the brand’s Labor Day Sales Event (which ran through Sept. 10), which offered $8,750 in savings on ’18 Silverado 1500 Crew Cab Texas Edition pickups.
Lexus takes second place with a 15-second spot introducing the ES 350, ES 300h and ES 350 F Sport – products of “mastery” that, the company says, create an entirely new feeling for drivers. A second commercial for the ES series, framed as a “confession” that the model has been stolen from “everything we’ve ever mastered,” takes No.4 on the chart this week.
The third-place ad from Mitsubishi takes viewers on a test drive with rapper Harry Mack, who freestyles about all the features available in the ’18 Eclipse Cross, including a dual-pane sliding panoramic sunroof and all-wheel drive.
The No.5 commercial from Lincoln highlights the integration between the ’19 MKC and the Waze navigation app, which is seamlessly “connecting the world inside with the world outside.”
