Lincoln Still No.1 on Most-Seen Auto Ads Chart

For the sixth time in the past nine weeks, an ad pairing the Oscar-winning actor with the Lincoln SUV tops iSpot.tv’s ranking of the most-viewed automotive commercials – the ads getting the most impressions across national broadcast and cable TV airings.

It’s a rerun viewers apparently haven’t gotten tired of: a Lincoln Nautilus commercial starring Matthew McConaughey.

For the sixth time in the past nine weeks, an ad pairing the Oscar-winning actor with the Lincoln SUV tops iSpot.tv’s ranking of the most-viewed automotive commercials – the ads getting the highest number of impressions across national broadcast and cable TV airings.

In second place for the week of March 11 is a Chevrolet commercial showing real owners (not actors) explaining why they switched from other car brands to Chevy. No.3 also is a Chevrolet ad – this one promoting the ’19 Silverado, which, the company proclaims, is the “official truck of callused hands” (and more).

The fourth-place spot from Nissan invites people to explore its cars and trucks that have won multiple J.D. Power Initial Quality awards. It plugs big savings on models such as the ’19 Rogue and its Safety Shield 360 technology.

Lexus closes out the ranking by extending an invitation to an “exceptionally crafted experience” – the Lexus Sales Event, where special leasing offers are available for models including the ’19 UX 200. This commercial has the best iSpot Attention Index (112) in the ranking, getting 12% fewer interruptions than the average auto ad (interruptions include changing the channel, pulling up the guide, fast-forwarding or turning off the TV).
