Automakers’ summer sales events make one last push, and a Ford spot tops iSpot.tv’s ranking of the most-viewed automotive commercials – the ads that have racked up the highest number of impressions across national broadcast and cable TV airings.
The Ford ad that finished the week of Sept. 2 in first place collected 337.1 million impressions. It lets viewers know the ’18 Explorer XLT 4X2 can be leased for $229 a month.
The second-place spot from Lincoln features music by Camila Cabello and Sam & Dave, and says the ’18 MKC can be leased for $259 a month during the final days of the Summer Invitation Event.
Nissan’s third-place ad invites customers to get “big clearance savings” on the last of the ’18 models, including the Titan, which has an Endurance V-8 claiming “best-in-class standard horsepower and torque.”
Fourth place goes to Buick with a commercial that shows off its new lineup, which is “full of surprises.” It says customers can get 20% below retail on most ’18 Encore models when financing through GM Financial.
Honda closes out the list with a spot declaring “satisfaction comes standard” during the Summer Spectacular Event – just like the Accord comes standard with a luxurious, roomy interior.
