Can you identify this mountain from a commercial?

I was curious, though someone might know where this is located. Pretty sure not in Colorado and may be heavily edited. I saw it in a Toyota commercial.

Could be East Sierra Nevada? The mountains look high, landscape looks like volcanic rock in desert, there is an area of some hills in Ovens Valley where the California movie industry likes to work. Unfortunately, I can't identyfy anything specific (e.g. Whitney..) that would make me sure about that.

I believe the large peak on the right side is Lone Pine Peak, not 100% sure though. I climbed Whitney six years ago and remember that peak is much more impressive than Whitney from the valley.

Peak on the right is Lone Pine Peak (12,944). Peak in the center at first is Mt. Langley (14,027 or so), has small flat top. Whitney is out of view/behind clouds to right. Looks to be taken from Alabama Hills area. Fun part of the Sierra! Similar view at the beginning of the second transformers movie I noticed!

Sure looks like Whitney Portal Road going through the Alabama Hills.

It is in fact on Whitney Portal Rd. Here's a Google Streets view of that exact same telephone pole in the center of the photo. The bushes to the left of that car in the photo are the same ones in the center of the Google Streets View.
