The series will span a total of eight hour-long episodes and feature three hosts, including Top Gear Magazine associate editor Tom “Wookie” Ford, the championship-winning American drag racer Anton Brown, and television/film star William Fichtner (The Dark Knight, Prison Break, Black Hawk Down).

Top Gear America will cover “exclusive and state-of-the-art vehicles,” as well as “the cars of America’s culture defining past.” The show’s hosts will take viewers to various “scenic highways and historic tracks of the American west.” Every week, the show will feature a different celebrity who will compete to earn a spot on the leaderboard at Top Gear‘s new studio and track, Speed Vegas.
BBC America has yet to announce a premiere date for the series, which will kick off at some point in 2017. In the meantime, you can catch new episodes of Top Gear, as Season 24 is currently airing on
