Sports fans, like most other demographic subgroups, buy vehicles, and if they are in the market for a vehicle right now, their researches will perhaps be coinciding with their plans to attend college and professional football contests. So this might be the moment to send out an advertising message touting this list of top 10 tailgating vehicles from Cars.com.
Cars.com believes that tying car sales to football is a good idea,and to that end it’s become a Presenting Sponsor of ESPN Saturday Afternoon College Football.
“With football season comes the return of fans to parking lots across the nation to partake in tailgating festivities,” said Patrick Olsen, editor-in-chief at Cars.com. “The ultimate tailgate requires the perfect tailgating car, so we took a look at a variety of new cars to determine which ones have factory-installed features to take the drama out of the pre-game party.”
Here, then, is the list.
* 2013 Ram 1500
* 2013 Chevrolet Suburban
* 2013 Chrysler Town and Country
* 2013 Ford Flex
* 2013 GMC Acadia
* 2013 Honda Fit
* 2014 Honda Odyssey
* 2013 Honda Ridgeline
* 2014 Subaru Forester
* 2013 Toyota Sienna
RBR-TVBR observation: Clearly, the broadcast sales force should encourage dealers to bring this vital information to football and other event fans sooner rather than later. OK, sales people. Get ready to get out there! On three! Hut Hut Hut!
