    Ford's use of sales numbers to question the accuracy of Chevrolet's ad is ludicrous. Everyone knows GM trucks outsell Fords, but Ford clings to the technicality that GMC trucks are different than Chevrolets in order to protect its "top seller" claim. Tell you what Ford, fair is fair, so how about Chevrolet gets to include GMCs and you can include the Lincoln Blackwood and Mark LT? What's that? You're not interested. What a surprise.

    Watching some of the morning shows, the reaction to this ad was generally negative, at least among the commentators. Ford would be better to just let it go, I think.

    Ford is again second and will not admit the defeat!They think advertising is not that important on SUPERBOWL NIGHT,SORRY THEY FUMBLED THE BALL.Chevrolet has a winner in this ad.

    Did they ever miss this time!Now they want the public to believe GM is not fair.Ford as been pulling GM pick-ups for years and GM never complained of unfair advertising by Ford.Let ford cry for themself!

    I seem to remember a Ford ad from about ten years ago where an F series truck pulls a Silverado up out of the water at a launching ramp. It had sunk from the weight of a boat trailer behind it. The Ford guys laugh and say that the Chevy had sunk "Like a Rock. I don't remember Chevrolet going apopleptic at that time.

    Til the loans are paid back they are on the tax payers dime or rather on the taxpayer's millions. That of course does not include accounting tricks to try and claim some $$$$ paid back. Ford has outsold government motors trucks for 34 straight years. The reason, Fords are just better.

    To use another analogy - if you are in a running race and you are first over the line you are the winner. If the second place getter and third place getter are on the same team - they don't combine their results to beat the true winner.

    I think the ad is fairly average - well made but the concept is not very engaging. I agree - if I was Ford - I wouldn't worry about it. In terms of sales FORD IS NUMBER 1. There is no brand of truck called GENERAL MOTORS - Chevrolet and GMC are separate brands. If you are going for largest manufacturer honours then fine - bundle them all together - BUT in terms of top selling brand of truck it is FORD.

    and the Silverado was named motor trend 2011 truck of the year

    GM has hoped for years that they could overtake the F-150 and not even the 2012 SuperBowl can over take the fact that the F-150 is Motor Trend Truck of the Year!

    wow how can any one sit there and vouge for the ford . As far as a certain person worrying about what chevy owes, we are paying back our loan. You need to worry about ford crying over the superbowl commercials. They act like they couldnt even afford to produce a commercial, u poor ford fans. watch out looks like ford is fixing to not only embaress themselves but prob take themselves out a loan. But my point is the ford stands up to its name (F.ound O.n R.oad D.ead) but thats just my opinion !!!!!!!!!

    When anyone says "Government Motors", I guess they're not aware of the $5.9 Billion U.S. Technology government loan that Ford accepted in 2009. Nissan borrowed 1.6 billion and Tesla, 465 Million. It's interesting that the GM haters never seem to have a problem with that fact.

    The things is this those were loans from the government to do research and develop better technology for vehicles made to be safer and more fuel efficient GM is reffered to as Government Motors. Because just like the other auto makers except for ford. They had to take a loan to keep from filing bankruptcy and restructure there the ins and outs of there company so they could turn a profit again. As to where ford didnt have to do this.

  • K-P Garage avatar K-P Garage Posted: 2/6/2012 9:14am PST

    Hate to see my tax dollars being used to promote the lie that chevy trucks are better. government motors should try making a non subsidized profit first and then a beter truck.

  • fb_100000014015596 avatar Eric Posted: 2/6/2012 10:43am PST

    The longest lasting thing has been true for a great many years, promoted uncontested for decades on end. GM also turned good profits in 2011 and paid back a good deal of the loan, but you didn't notice.

  • fb_100003291377811 avatar Robert Posted: 2/11/2012 8:52am PST

    the only trend about ford is, the 350 to 400$ i get for them at the salvage yard.

  • MichiGoon avatar MichiGoon Posted: 2/11/2012 8:59am PST

    It seems that Ford can't accept the real "Truth About Trucks"! LOL
