Ram Lowballs are way to the top of the most viewed ads list

Ram Trucks’ “Moments” takes the #1 spot on’s latest list of TV commercials from automakers with the most impressions, but does so with the distinction of having the lowest estimated national ad spend of the top five.

The estimated $1 million national budget for the ad represents just under 7.5% of the combined $13.5 million spent on the five ads on this week’s list. Chevrolet, which spends the most, has dropped an estimated $5.6 million by running its “EVs for Everyone” commercial, landing it third on the list.

The difference between them? airing. Ram bought more than 1,400 broadcasts nationwide with his $1 million focused on the President’s Cup and college football. Chevy, meanwhile, spent most of its budget on NFL games (over $3.7 million) and bought just over 400 national broadcasts.

That turned out to be a trend on the list this week, as every other automaker with significant NFL placements all had fewer than 1,000 broadcasts for the week. This includes GMC’s “Outside In” and Acura’s “Drop The Mic”. Nissan’s only “60 Years in 30 Seconds” followed Ram’s lead and eschewed the NFL, leading to over 1,000 broadcasts.

According to iSpot’s Ace Ruler The survey found that viewers found GMC’s “Outside In” to be the most compelling ad in our top five, with an overall Persuasion score of 6.3% above industry standards. It also received the best Brand Match rating – 91%, referring to the percentage of viewers surveyed who remembered it was a GMC ad after watching it.
