Jeep launches new ‘ultimate search engine’ campaign for Grand Cherokee

Jeep Australia has launched a new campaign for the Grand Cherokee, shot by award-winning director Germain McMicking on location in Melbourne, Chile, Patagonia and Argentina.

The campaign is the latest incarnation of the Grand Cherokee’s ‘The ultimate search engine’ positioning. The idea was developed by CumminsRoss, led by creative team Ed Howley and Toby Cummings.

There are two versions of the ad, ‘City’ and ‘Glacier’ each airing in 60 second and 30 second spots. Both feature footage of the natural landscape intercut with people in different moments of exploration. The same voiceover is used on both, and the car itself makes an appearance only in the final few seconds, before cutting to Jeep’s brand tagline ‘Don’t hold back’.

The soundtrack was composed by recent TropScore winner Ben Allen.

“We started with the universal truth that we’re all searching for something, and this led us into some rich territory for such an incredible vehicle,” said Cummins Ross ECD Jason Ross.
