Anyone heard Fords new Territory ad on the radio? 104.3 in Melb today.

It evolves round a school dropping kids off...

They are playing the CB thing between cars, and it goes along the lines of

"Mum in monster 4wd .... I cant see"

Cant remember if it actually went into Killer4wd or not, only heard it in the background.

Anyone else heard it?

The TV version of those ads have been around for a while - they've cost Ford at least one sale, as I used them to illustrate to a friend that the "4WD" he was looking at buying was actually a "chick's car"...

hehehe...

Speaking of Territories - although literally not off-road capable, they seem to have two linkages of some sort just behind the rear axle line - maybe torsion bar points or something - you can see them if following one - looks like they would be ripped off by the first minor obstacle on a low/medium duty trip. If the lower side of such vehicles had a "smooth profile", could they get out and about a bit further ?

You can see the same thing when following one of the 'fat-bottomed' RAV4s. I am not sure if the newer ones are the same but the old ones certainly looked as though they would get severe damage if ever introduced to even a small rock.

Most 4wd ads are crap.

All the best

It would be interesting to see the TV ad done in reverse.

Sweaty frustrated looking soccer Mum in Territory hung up on rock with various suspension/transmission components strewn behind while 'trucky Mum' eases past in Cruiser/Patrol looking very happy with her weekend away in the bush.

Horses for courses, but it is a bit of an apples vs oranges argument isn't it?

Matt.

Did they show the feature where the door flies open when you put the window down as discussed by several callers to 2GB this morning?

I think the TV version of the ad is good - I reckon it will turn off a few "mums" from getting the big 4wds.

Don't think that ad will sell cars though
