Battle Of The Brands: Which American Automakers Bare All On YouTube? Page 3

Follow Richard

Screencap from Dodge' YouTube channel

Ford: http://www.youtube.com/user/ford
Total uploads: 177
Total subscribers: 2,496
Total views: 997,902
Date launched: November 1, 2005
Date range of clips: One week to one year
Like: Clean design; fairly well-curated selection of clips
Dislike: "Clean" is awfully close to "dull"; no "all" button at the top, so we can't see everything at a glance (why do folks keep doing this?)
Most recent clip: "Operation Drive One"

 

GMC: http://www.youtube.com/user/thejeepchannel
Total uploads: 17
Total subscribers: 206
Total views: 74,364
Date launched: December 23, 2005
Date range of clips: Three weeks to seven months
Like: Well, it's pretty
Dislike: Not a lot to see here -- especially given that the channel is nearly five years old; feels fairly underused; also, it's nearly impossible to find from within YouTube (we reached it via the GMC homepage)
Most recent clip: "2011 Sierra HD"

 

Jeep: http://www.youtube.com/user/thejeepchannel
Total uploads: 228
Total subscribers: 2,990
Total views: 3,575,684
Date launched: January 19, 2006
Date range of clips: Five days to four years
Like: Huge number of videos; clean design; "all" button enabled at the top
Dislike: There are so many clips that sorting through them can be daunting. Vetting a few wouldn't be a bad idea -- especially clips like "Bouncy and Fun", which are totally 100% fine for fan uploads, but maybe not so appropriate to host on an automaker's channel
Most recent clip: "The Things We Make Make Us"

  1. Gee, no wonder the GMC channel is so hard to find, if you have to get to it via Jeep. Must be all that new collaboration between automakers with strong government backing. ;)
