Jeep ad registers most viewer impressions in first week of new year.

For the second week in a row, Jeep owns the most-seen auto TV ad – but it’s different from the previous one. “4xAdventure,” highlighting the versatility of the 4Xe models, racked up 236.7 million national TV ad impressions from Jan. 1-7, according to data from Nearly half of those impressions (112.2 million) came from NFL games, while top impressions-generating networks included CBS (58.1 million), Fox (44.1 million) and ABC (37.2 million). According to iSpot’s Creative Assessment, 31% of surveyed viewers considered the visual scenes to be the single best thing about the ad. 

Despite only airing 74 times and solely in the first few days of the week, Mercedes-Benz’s “Holidays With Love” scored enough impressions – 203.6 million – to take second place on the chart. The automaker zeroed in on college football playoff action, specifically the Rose Bowl (which generated 58.7 million impressions) and the Sugar Bowl (44.7 million). Per iSpot’s Creative Assessment, this commercial had a 90% brand match (the percentage of survey respondents who remembered it was a Mercedes-Benz ad after watching it), above the recent automaker industry norm of 79%.

Ram Trucks owns the third- and fifth-place ads. The No.3 spot, which had 183.9 million national TV ad impressions, declares that the automaker puts “everything we have into our trucks, so you get everything out of them.” The fifth-place commercial, with 153.8 million impressions, is quite similar, but tacks on information about the brand’s Something New Sales Event, offering special deals on ’24 Ram 1500 trucks. NFL games generated top impression counts for both spots — 73.4 million and 51.4 million, respectively. 

At No.4: Hyundai’s “Stretch,” which takes a humorous approach to visualize the Tucson’s remote capabilities via Bluelink+. The spot ran up 157 million national TV ad impressions, 71% of which came from Sunday airings. Top networks by impressions included NBC (57.8 million), CBS (19.8 million) and Fox (15.2 million), while top programming by impressions included NFL games (76.3 million), NBA games (9.8 million) and The Golden Bachelor (9.2 million).
