Off Road Handling Characteristics

We here at Fire That Agency are always happy when sharp-eyed commercial watchers find items that are worthy of submission to our little corner of the world. Such is the case with the always funny Scope, from Scope Tech who found these two examples of fine advertisements.

Nissan and Jeep are two of the leaders in off road vehicles designed for fun when you don't have pavement underneath you. I grew up in the mountains of Colorado and can attest to the importance of good suspension when out doing some serious 4-wheeling.

From the two examples, I think that we can gather that Jeep is trying to make the point that their vehicle is all about fun while Nissan attempts to extol the virtues of their independent front suspension.

I have driven both of these units, and can give you my completely unbiased opinion that while a hard front end can make for a few miles of rugged fun, independent suspension gives a much smother ride over the life of the unit.

See for yourself, first the Jeep:


Now the Nissan:


Thanks again Scope for taking the time out of your buy day to compare and contrast!

Pfffft! The Nissan girl's rack might be real, but all that bouncing is fake. It looks like someone is pulling on her straps!

There's an interesting job, huh?: Car Commercial Bra Strap Puller.

Niiiiiice one.

Wow, somehow I feel these agencies are taking advantage of me, but for some reason, I can't place a boo...I mean a finger on it.
