|Jimmy Fallon on NBC Tonight Show|
Why are truck makers fighting over Jimmy Fallon?
That's because they want an endorsement by the new host of NBC's Tonight Show, who has been getting 10 million viewers.
Jimmy Fallon Mentioned Getting a Truck on the Tonight Show and Ford Tweets First
On Wednesday, March 5, 2014, Jimmy Fallon mentions at the beginning of the Tonight Show that he wants to buy a truck, but knows very little about trucks.
@FordTrucks quickly tweets at 11:02 p.m. "@jimmyfallon We think you should get a 2015 F-150 King Ranch edition cot.ag/MPiq3x"
|Ford Tweets Jimmy Fallon|
It should be noted that this truck is not even available yet. Its production starts in a couple of months.
Then on March 6, 2014, Chevy tweeted:
"Hey +Jimmy Fallon! Looking for a truck, huh? The #Silverado would look nice in the #FallonTonight family's driveway. DM us & we'll help!"

But Dodge drove a truck and parked it outside of 30 Rock with a sign that read: "Big enough, Jimmy? Test it out."

So Jimmy Fallon sends out MC Tariq from his band, The Roots, and he test drives the Dodge Ram and says it does everything his Mini Cooper does. Dodge Ram sells a V-6 diesel version that gets 29 mpg (highway).
What kind of truck do you think Jimmy Fallon will get?
