TV Ads? What ads? I can't ever remember seeing any TV spots specifically for Wrangler.
There are Wrangler sepcific spots, the most recent one with a few Wranglers running on dirt roads, through forests that has been playing for the past few years on regular rotation;

And while most will throw a smattering of other models in there the epic ones they use for the major Ad buys feature the Wrangler prominently and everything else is just window dressing or added texture.

Take the 2 the most talked about Jeep Ads in Decades from Super Bowl 50;

Sure they sprinkled the Renegade in their because that was the JEEP that needed a launch kick, and there were glimpses of others there as well, but it was primarily about the Halo Wrangler.

However there have been many Wrangler-only TV spots, be it for the Winter Edition they promote every X-games, or a myriad of other spots including themlatest Juventus one out today.

Even for the 2007JK/JKU launch they had these Wrangler-only ‘classics’;



Is buying costly TV spots money well spent by FCA?
They buy ads anyways, all the time, and have for decades, the point is to spend the limited resources wisely for maximum impact, and there are only a few big-time ad buy opportunities.

If they never spent money before on these big ads then sure, it would make sense to keep things quiet, but considering their history of success with these ads, why go quiet all of a sudden?

Jeep has always used a lot of commercials, including the expensive Ad buys.

LOL, as you can see... more than a few. :like:

Those 2 from SuperBowl 50 are likely still some of the more powerful ones they’ve done;



and a few more that are just nice to see again starting with yet another Wrangler-only one;



This one made me laugh when it came out;

And since there’s a limit on the # of media links per post, here’s your Soccer Mom + Wrangler-specific ad from the past;

I know this has absolutely nothing to do with Jeep but I just wanted you guys to see this. It gets me every time. Mod can delete it if you would like but I'm a Mustang and a Jeep guy.

The 66 Years commercial is the best car commercial ever! Sadly I never did catch it on TV when it came out.

Well, that sure took it’s time. Of course at this point it’s kind of a ‘yeah we know, you didn’t show at SEMA’ thing.

Strangely, still no Wrangler in the production section... though I guess they need to leave things for the webfolks to update over the next few weeks. :computerrage:

Is Sergio going to be there?
I'll have my people get ahold of his people, then my people will get ahold of your people with an answer.

In other words; I can neither confirm nor deny Sergio's presence at the reveal.

Inquiring minds still want to know if the reveal will be streamed live.
