Adam, Tanner and Rutledge hit the road in this installment of Top Gear U.S. on History and criss-cross the nation behind the wheels of some of the most iconic vehicles on the planet. They compete over who had the best college car on an epic road trip through Mexico, tackle volcanoes and glaciers in America’s toughest 4-wheel drives, reinvent the RV and Taxi’s, and build a car capable of handling the apocalypse. From Californian beaches to the ice bound sierras, from 2 million dollar super cars to 1500 dollar clunkers, Tanner, Adam and Rutledge drive them all and in the process to discover how to drive on frozen lakes, play football in cars and to find out just how much punishment a vehicle can take before it gives up.

I love this show so much. But if you want to buy the episodes buy the SD version. Other than that I just love the show.
Awful awful show
Recycled top gear UK material, a complete lack of enthusiasm, and the worst choice of hosts ever. Don't waste your money and stick with UK.
Top Gear USA is getting better as the seasons progress. If you compare it to TG UK, remember that it is in season 20, while these guys are on season 3. When/ if these guys get there, they probably will be as good as TG UK. TG UK was similar in their 3rd season.
