Lincoln grabs first place in iSpot.tv’s latest ranking of the most-viewed automotive commercials – the ads with the highest number of impressions across national broadcast and cable TV airings.
The No.1 spot for the week of Nov. 5 highlights the special features of the ’19 MKC, including Amazon Alexa integration, a vista sunroof, navigation with Waze and a Wi-Fi hotspot.
This ad also has the best iSpot Attention Index (147) in the ranking with 47% fewer interruptions than the average auto ad (interruptions include changing the channel, pulling up the guide, fast-forwarding or turning off the TV).
With Black Friday approaching, FCA’s Ram division takes advantage of the holiday buzz to promote a sales event for its 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickup models in the second-place spot. Customers can get $1,000 Black Friday Bonus Cash, the ad points out, as well as special offers on the ’19 1500 Classic Express.
GMC has the No.3 commercial, which shows a man surprising his wife with his-and-hers GMCs thanks to the company’s Black Friday sale (customers can get deals on select models including the ’18 Sierra 1500 4x4 Crew Cab).
In its fourth-place ad, Volkswagen is confident it will take only a single test drive to make you want a Jetta, Tiguan or Atlas.
Ford rounds out the chart with a spot reflecting on how far the company has come in the past 100 years, from the original Model T to today’s diverse lineup of cars, trucks and SUVs. But now, the ad says, it’s time to stop talking and get back to building.
