Video: Chevrolet releases two new "Red X Engineers" commercial

We don’t know how different these guys are from Department 180, but as far as Chevrolet is concerned, they pretty much have the same job description as the brand’s ’Red X’ engineers.

As the focal point of two new Chevy commercials, the ’Red X’ engineers have one objective in mind: to test the hell out of Chevy vehicles, subjecting them to a myriad of torture tests to ensure that its customers are given a car that deserves to be called ’excellent’.

Check out this two new ads - one is a 30-second spot and the other a 60-second version - and if we do say so ourselves, they strike a chord. More than any other commercial they have come out with in recent memory.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

With the impressive performance of the car I bet the team creative behind its production really gives not just effort but dedication on what they do! And I bet Chevrolet believes that perfection is not enough they need to work even harder.

hmm. I wonder why they were called Red X’ ? I really love watching on how cars were built. I hope this was a complete series of the first step up to the last just like the Bentley released few months back.

OK, the video is private so I can’t watch their commercial. But I’ve seen commercials done by Chevrolet and they bring an unexpected result. Everytime.

Hey! Where is the video?hmm. I think its a privilege to see on how the ever famous Chevy has been built! However, with the high speed performance of this car no wonder its quite popular.

I really love watching on how things are built. Admittedly, I was impressed about the passion of the creative team behind in each production. BTW, I have seen the same thing with the Bentley and they have showed the complete details on each part of the car.

Well, for me I just love watching them building this car and that’s all! I really have a positive thought in Chevy car, it has an amazing speed and an awesome performance.

What the sense of putting a video when its expired already? Well, looking at the previous work of Department 180 I would say that they have the ability to turn this car into an amazing high speed performing car.

He hasn’t really "fixed" anything yet. All that has happened at this point is a series of ads, whether good or bad, have been discontinued.

Yes, I agree. You really have to put the car at it’s maximum speed to test its reliability. Nice ad!

This experiment shows the weak point and strong point of the Chevy cars.

Impressive torture test by Red X. This will probably ensure more on the safety of the Chevy cars.
